This may be the 2014 model, so it's 1-2 year old processor but still great specs for a Chromebook and great price for something that retailer for $999. For comparison the new 2016 is 5th gen i5 with 8gb ram.

I own this Chromebook. Paid $700 for it about a year ago from someone on Craigslist. It's currently my daily driver.

Couple points out of the box:
1) The system can do 2560x1700 out of the box, but on a 12" screen, it's illegible. You'll spent most of your time in a resolution that's slightly less than 1080 (It's something x950, can't recall off the bat. Has to maintain that 3:2 ratio).
2) Very easily to enable Developer Mode and install something else. I use crouton to have Ubuntu + XFCE desktop on the side so that I can do my development work while still keeping ChromeOS as the main.
3) Beautiful looking machine. Looks like a solid slab of aluminum and distinctly not a Macbook Air clone.
4) Battery life is somewhere in the realm of 4-6 hours. Not that great. I always bring my charger with me.

Any other questions, let me know. Seems like a great deal, actually. If we hadn't just bought a replacement Chromebook for my girlfriend I would jump on this.


I'll check when I get home, but I'm pretty sure the power brick itself has a button that you can depress to pop out the prongs and replace with a UK connector or vice-versa.
Can you say Most Opinionated Post of the Year? You buy a chromebook because 95% are browsing the web and checking email from their home device. No need for excel, powerpoint, word etc. However, google has their equivalent software so you can still do spreadsheets, docs, and slides. Anyways, I only use my chromebook at home and have been extremely pleased with it (Toshiba 2). Save your tirade for the Macbook forum.
Because not everyone isn't incompetent like yourself. Many people including myself install Linux on it and even Windows (which isn't necessary).

great specs and I've heard good things about this line, but dang that is expensive for a Chromebook. good luck to those who buy, but it's out of my range. the CB search continues

Sounds like a ok deal. but the spec and OS is pretty limited for normal usage.

I've tried ordering from them twice and both times my order sat in Pending status for months before finally being cancelled. Was never charged for the products, but still a poor business practice imo.
Also, I'm no laptop wiz, but one of the first things mentioned is UK POWERCORD. So does that mean it would take an adapter to work in the US?

As nice as the build on this is, I would recommend anyone considering this to just look at the Dell CB 13.

I saw that as well and was wondering the same thing about the power cord

The OS is basically Gentoo Linux, and is easily "rooted". Once rooted, you can do anything that any other linux can do.

The only think that kills the ChromeBooks for me is the SSD size. Unless you want to drop $1300 on a ChromeBook, that is.

PERIOD! Why would anyone pay this kind of money for something that is a poor excuse for a computer. Buy a refurbished Apple Macbook & you'll be ahead of the game performance wise & price wise. I respect most of Google's accomplishments but the Chromebook is not one of them. I tried one for 24 hours & took it back; continue using my 8 year old Macbook which is far superior to any Chromebook. Save your money & your aggravation. Chromebook is a poor imitation of a laptop.Mad
