All Chromebook Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
Just an update. The staff sold it to a another customer despite originally holding a reservation.
All you needed to do was to post the link I posted in your original post, IMO
I read the very review before purchasing my projector and rainbows are mentioned as an issue for some people. So like myself who does see the rainbows on fast moving scenes it would be a reason for returning. So going back to my unhelpful comment a returned item may be a faulty / refurbished unit, a shop demo, or a customer return due to unacceptable visual effects. Is that more helpful ?
It's just 12m warranty, as expected... One problem I have with this unit is the noise level. Too loud even for this price. On the eco mode with dynamic black switched off its almost the same as in full mode only slightly lower pitched noise. I'm starting to think I've got a faulty projector... (annoyed)
I thought that, although the one I've reserved is apparently all new with all stickers and packaging intact. Will check if they offer extended warranty, but it is still being sold as an open box clearance item.
Mine has also arrived. Surprised at how beautiful TN panels are nowadays. Thanks for the spot OP. Never had G-sync before, it is game changing.
My Screen arrived - absolutely perfect and brand new.... so glad I purchased
Even if you can't hit 240hz it doesn't matter, G-Sync solves screen tearing. You can set it at 144hz if you want but there's no real benefit.
Good luck finding 144+ hz, gsync monitor then for 2 bills... these people..
Wouldnt pay over 2 bills for a 1080p monitor
Some just don't know the difference between this and the obsolete model still being sold by Google. Bet if was for old model , would have got plenty of votes here.
Why so cold? Seems like a deal to me...
Looks like they're updating the Quantity every few days so might add more soon
Had some problems with these. If you are using WiFi for 4k content make sure you have a decent connection to your router as it will drop and buffer alot. Best to connect hardwired to router. I sold mine on in the end.
Thanks i ordered the last one. heat added
Nice one. (highfive)
Thanks for the heads up on this, I managed to just grab one for £255 - Asus C302C/M3-6Y30/4GB Ram/64GB HDD/13"/Chromebook/ Seems a great price, but i'm abit confused why they list one with 64GB HDD and one with 64GB SSD :S
FWIW I had the cex specific search criteria saved as a a shortcut on my desktop's chrome bookmatk bar. Every time i sat down i gave it a click. Was amazed when after a couple of months one day it actually paid off.
Voted hot after expired. Wishing was early to get one. In Chromebook very few have decent CPU and touchscreen.
They do have them occasionally because I got a grade A one ten weeks ago. Arrived boxed in mint condition. A week later another one appeared and was gone within 24 hours. Not seen one since. You have to keep checking back, which is a bit of a thankless task but worth it if you manage to get one.
Out of stock now
Can I use it with a Vodafone sim?
Cold, bought the same with the n3160 and 4gb ram, 1080p IPS for some price from same company and its only good for Google docs and YouTube that's it. Even the addition of the app store is a poor implementation and the apps barely work. Happily sold it for £180 after paying £150 though lol
4gb ram minimum...
That's all true, people always like a good Chromebook deal, stick up a couple of deals in the £150-180 range for the community. At this deals price point and with the restrictions mentions it's fine.
I have this and its more than adequate for browsing and DOES run android apps. Yes the screen isn't great as it isn't HD but for internet browsing i don't find it matters and as somebody who gets migraines from bright lights i love how dull the screen goes and that it isn't reflective.5 The only issues i've had were news websites that try to load videos constantly would bog it down, i added an extension to the browser which blocks this and it run smoothly on all websites now. I much prefer this to my Windows laptop that has a decent spec!
Less ram always creates problems. Earlier ram on all laptops could be upgraded. But chomebooks come with everything soldered making them obsolete very fast. Screen is not even full HD like most new chromebooks
You wont find a better Processor, screen, keyboard or trackpad on a chromebook than on the Pixelbook.
I would love one of these but just cannot justify that price :(
Good deal £200 voted hot
Hot deal if you like chromebooks, simply must have the best and can afford it. Like any well designed device made from premium materials it will be a pleasure to own for years to come. Still too pricey for me mind but I'd be delighted to receive one as a present, although that's never going to happen. :o
Can windows be ported onto this??
I got this deal a few months back when it was on offer at 6 bottles for £12 ! (y)
Why are you so defensive ? 99% of your amazon deals show up immediately on the Amazon discount finder . You should just post that as a deal, so as to help everyone. Then you wouldn't need to keep replying to everyone in a secretive way on your deals, as if you have special access to hidden items only you can track down.
that was not how i found it.i use this tool but i use my time and hours and hours searching these deals.it takes time and not always as simple as using the discount finder
If you want to find all these deals yourself it's very easy and well known. Simply google amazon discount finder, the first search result is the money saving expert website. Click that link and it will take you to the " secret " amazon discount search engine. Choose a department and the amount you want to save i.e grocery 50-100 % then press the green search button. This will take you straight to all these cheap deals directly on Amazon. Also be sure to then just click Amazon as the seller at the bottom. Hope that helps : )
Old enough to remember Persil power's through your dirt and your clothes....
If your motherboard packed up after 12 months, tell them you want the unit replaced under the Sale of Goods Act. Items have to be of reasonable/merchantable quality etc etc and 12 months for this type of item is not reasonable. The fact that they warrant their goods for 12 months is totally irrelevant- it can’t replace or override your rights in law. Google your rights, you will win your case
At least it will be money well spent, not £ 233.94 for a dud .I saw C302CA for £399 in sale. Acer could have put a better CPU in this thing like Asus. It looks good but very slow performance.
Decent Chromebook but mine packed up a month after the 12 month warranty expired, Acer charged me £37 to tell me it needed a new mainboard that would cost £240! Avoiding Acer from now on
Are we supposed to vote on a deal based on the best current price because if that's how voting works, I don't see why this shouldn't get heat... Lol I actually giggled at that myself.

Got mine from Cex a week ago. it's an amazing little machine. Paid £245 for A grade - as new.
Thanks for comments guys - much appreciated. I didn't know it comes up on CEX, I will keep my eyes open. Ended up cancelling my order and buying from same company on ebay for £329 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/192352957268
Bought this at full price in December. Saw it on cex last month for 250, there were 3 of them. Its a solid Chromebook and Linux support appears to be incoming which would remove the need for dual boot.
Keep an eye out at CeX, comes with warranty (although I haven't had to use it before so can't comment) and sometimes come up for around the £250 mark.
Mine also came very quickly.
Chromebook arrived today. It's mint & I'm well pleased with it, thanks for posting. It also had 4GB of RAM - I was expecting the standard poverty-spec 2GB!
Looks like an excellent site
Sorry, FORNEWCUSTOMER was the code and guess there wasnt many in stock. Will expire shortly. If you look around the site theres lots of other bargains. Code works for all as far as I know.
Definitely OOS now.
Try John Lewis or Amazon then. Or wait till it's 199 again? I reckon 250 is a fair price.
This is 350 now on Currys. Still worth it for that price?
Agree with you about the quality. It's best laptop for 199£'s, feels much expensive.
Yeah, but its so much easier to go into John Lewis if I need to use the guarantee. Bought mine this week from JL (they did price-match with Argos so £199). I am so far very very impressed. Cannot believe that so much is available for so little. I have used about 5 different chromebooks in the past and this is better than all of them (and cheaper than some, none were cheaper than this model). It really is so very beautifully put together for a budget machine. Okay, so people who are saying it is as good as or better than a MacBook are having a laugh. However it is better than almost every windows or chrome laptop experience I have had in terms of build, keyboard and casing. The speakers are pretty amazing too, okay not a great deal of bass but considering the size and price quite astounding. Yes the text can be a bit small at times but what do you expect in a 10.1 inch screen, I personally find it no different to looking at a smartphone and better at times. I would add a word of warning. Make sure you want a Chromebook. I love chromebooks, they are the future but they are not a PC or a Mac so don't expect a PC or Mac platform, travel back to the 20th century for that experience ;)
You get same 2 year warranty from Amazon as well
Can you recommend some emulators? And how it works love retro gaming. Glad you're enjoying your new gadget.
My Chromebook came yesterday and I simply just love It. I've updated It as well and got the google play store to. And playing some classic retro emulation to with my nvidia shield controller v2 which Is fantastic :D
Thanks for the Information about the nano flash drive. Will get one of them too and thanks for being helpful to (y)
You'll love it, the battery last for ages, no heat, fanless. You can actually use it on your lap. You might need a nano flash drive because there's no micro sd slot. https://www.everythingusb.com/mini-drives.html
I've just ordered the Full-HD IPS gold version from Amazon. And watching some YouTube video reviews. It seems to be a very good Chromebook and that what I need :)
How are people getting on with using this chromebook? Tempted to grab one at the next price drop for note taking.
Could you add a hdmi to this to connect it to a tv for PowerPoints does anyone know?
Missed delivery today :-( Good to hear its good, some of the negative comments on other thread had me a little worried
I received it today from Amazon. Build quality is excellent, at par if not better than MacBooks. Screen is very good. Extremely fast processor. Given the price this is an incredible value.
Also ordered. Looking like 4+days for delivery, not used to waiting that long with prime
Got one, works great for me. You can subscribe to Google play music for 4 months free.
Ok thanks. I like Dougal!
This feature is coming very soon, it was briefly available to firmware 114510 according to Reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/googlehome/comments/85wjkj/can_now_play_from_google_home_to_bluetooth_speaker/
No training other than the initial setup bit. Whilst Alexa is more natural, it also means that the dot used to wake up with similar sounding words or sounds. No accidental waking up with the home so far. Try "hey Dougal" with the home though. Someone else suggested it on here and it makes my son laugh! Or try "Ok Booboo" Surprisingly it works.
Out of interest have you trained the Home to everyone's voice? I didn't as I think it gives each person a profile so we can't share my music? Perhaps that's my problem. I'll try to sneak it back this eve. If only you could change the wake word to Alexa :)
Sounds like a typically idiotic Currys salesperson. He obviously missed the 128 GB internal storage on the spec. sheet :p
We've been to look at one in curry's today but none in stock. In fact the salesman only had negative comments about them, saying you need constant Internet as everything is stored on the cloud and the device is useless without it.
I have this. Cracking price.
Unfortunate that China has blocked google so demand in China for Chromebooks is nil, otherwise we would have a wide choice of Chinese cheap and cheerful Chromebooks to choose from. As it is, with a few exceptions, we in the uk are currently substantially overpaying for Chromebook hardware. (annoyed)
?????????????????? This is a hot deal - cheapest price=hot deal. So many good deals get lost when people think that expressing their opinion on a product is somehow relevant to a deal's heat. NVM I'm off to Currys now - if they can let me try Android Golf Clash on a Pixelbook and it plays OK then I may be impulsive enough to buy one. Hot Deal! **edit - online order only - no demo, no purchase

I hadn't noticed it was Win10, yes exactly
Don't touch them 32GB is just not enough for Windows, 64GB is more workable. That's why they're so cheap and unwanted on Argos eBay
Sorry, the "Limited quantity available" mislead.
That is a refurb and isn't actually available...
It's out of stock.
This is the CB3-131 model, which is listed as planned (but not yet available).
It's looks like it is the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-131 which is currently planned to get Play Store in the future. Your guess is as good as mine as to when.
depends on model.......not clear in argos description https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps
Good deal, Is playstore available on this yet? Would be very useful.
You're so right. £600 here, £336 in US. That's some BS.
found it. i was using us international instead of standard us keyboard. Moral: buy non uk stock and save money. minor differences are not an issue. Why are we being so very ripped off?
found £ on my dutch hp chromebook 13. I was worried as i couldn´t send invoices. But was dead easy to find. instead if shift and 4 to get $ you press shift and the right alt key and then 4 and £ comes up. saved £300. Still looking for the apostrophe though (highfive)
The swapped @ and " peeve me as well.
And the lack of a pound sign 😋
