Incorrect. My XE303 received an update from ChromeOS 68 to 69 only this morning. Yes, it has passed Google's obligation to update but it ain't dead yet. [btw product was released in 2012]. While I am not going to dump mine - I wouldn't buy one at any price.
Wow her have bo end of bad reviews dont think I would ever purchase anything from them
Nevermind the argument about refurb etc but for day to day light browsing & Office type work are these any good, thinking of cheap & cheerful starter for a Y7 student got no experience of these but pruce seems right for the family (disabled parent after serious car crash so moneys tight) if not any suggestions on other chrome books cheap?
To be fair, the ones at £109 are 'used-like new'. But I probably would go with Amazon anyway.
Cheap, but this is an outdated model which was released in 2013 so will start showing its age (performance wise), and doesn't receive updates any longer (and no security updates = a massive risk): https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=en Chromebook - XE303 Auto Update Expiration = Jul 2018 "When a device reaches Auto Update Expiration (AUE), it means that the product model is considered obsolete and automatic software updates from Google are no longer guaranteed." Is not listed as a Chromebook supported to run Android apps either https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps Personally I'd rather use an old WIndows laptop with Windows 10 on it which keeps receiving updates instead of an unsupported Chromebook. Still, very cheap indeed
