Too late.. they already raised the prices. Frown

**whoops... nevermind. Prices seem pretty good. The pro hardly goes on sale. BBY is the only one with 64gb though.

As you mentioned, a more powerful CPU (comes in handy for more resource intensive apps such as games, multitasking, or just having lots of tabs running on Chrome), the pen, and screen resolution (arguably these models have the best screens on any Chromebook out there - Pixelbook from Google uses this same Samsung screen I believe).

You are also correct in that Chrome OS is not a resource hog and devices with less powerful specs run fine and work perfectly for a lot of users who are mostly browsing the web, watching videos, or using social media applications. Therefore, if you are happy with your Acer for less $, then you are all set.

We have the plus. Lots of good about it, but a few cons:

It's not snappy at all for basic tasks. Runs like an outdated iPhone or iPad mini 4, if that helps to explain things. If you're ok with slight lag during normal use then the plus is fine. I can't speak to the Pro.

Review from android central
[androidcentral.com] agrees that the plus is definitely slower, but that you might run into some compatibility issues with android apps, which are generally designed to run on ARM processors. So if you expect to use a lot of android apps, the plus might still be the better option.

Those who want something faster for general web browsing (with more open tabs) just need to decide if it's worth the $80 price premium.

From what I recall, this information is already outdated as the Pixelbook uses the same CPU and they've made the adjustments needed.
As someone who has a Plus and bought a Pro just to test it out, I'm perfectly content with my Plus. There is a negligible difference between the two. It's like having a computer with an SSD and a computer with a slightly faster SSD lol. That $80 could be better spent elsewhere. For starters, a Spigen tempered glass screen protector is $17 on Amazon and a skin on Decalgirl.com is about $22 shipped.

That's one thing I also want in a Chromebook. I'm looking for a Asus c302ca to go on sale. They seem to have everything I want including backlit keyboard.

Guessing this is wifi only?

Looking for a deal on a chromebook (or a tablet) that will work with T-mobile sim. My current LG G-pad is a piece of trash with constant bootlooping.

I've been watching Chromebook deals for a while. This one is certainly one of the priciest ones I've seen. My only application for such a device would be to play games on the go. Can it play Android games like Asphalt 8 or Clash or Clans?

You can get some good deals on refurbished Asus C302s. Lowest I've noticed was $320. Keep an eye on eBay and Newegg if interested.
