I am new to chromebook but 32gb seems a little skimpy. Anway to replace storage or add an ssd (I am not talking about add sd card).

I bought a 14" chromebook from costco non-touchscreen with 4gb/64gb memory for $200. Is this a better deal despite less storage?

Edit: i was wrong, the costco one I bought is also 4gb/32gb with intel celeron.

This is a better overall chromebook.

Chromebooks are for browsing and media consumption. The config of this Chromebook is more than enough for most users. Overall this Chromebook is well built and has a nice 15.6" full HD touchscreen display and backlit keyboard. This Chromebook also supports android apps, so the touchscreen on this might be more useful.

Chromebooks are primarily for working on the cloud. Local storage is not all that critical. This does come with a MicroSD slot for additional storage. This Chromebook does have 4GB RAM and a Full HD 15.6 touchscreen display. This also has backlit keyboard which is very useful in low light/dark situations.

Might come in handy when using Android apps (which this one supports).

Is the auto update policy for this nov 2023? Updates will last for about 4.5 years which just half a year less than new chromebooks that come out with 5 years I think. That's what I see based on the the model number CB515-1HT.

I bought one of these a few months ago for a family member. Rather than having them ask questions later, I always test the devices first, setup everything for them and then transfer over any needed files from the old laptop. During the few days I had with the Acer 15 (CB515) I was so impressed with it that I ended up buying one for myself a short time after.

Performance, battery life, audio, display and build are all good to great. It's also only 3.8lbs making it one of the lightest 15" laptops I've come across. If I had to find some negatives, I'd say the primary one is that the keyboard could be better. The two front facing speakers flanking the keyboard sound excellent, but they're so big that the keyboard feels squished in between them (at least for me anyway). My only other nitpicks are that I wish the touchpad was more firm as it rattles occasionally (not uncommon on low to mid-range laptops) and the LED power indicator blinks when the laptop is unused in sleep mode (it switches to solid blue when in use).

To anyone looking for a large Chromebook, I'd recommend the Acer 15 without hesitation. However, the model in this deal has a Celeron N3350. I definitely spring for the upgraded Pentium N4200 one instead. Office Depot has it for $210. [officedepot.com] It is manufacturer refurbished but should be in brand new condition. That's the lowest price you'll find anywhere for the N4200 model. Trust me, I did a lot of research prior to buying mine.

The RAM and 32GB eMMC storage are soldered to the mainboard. For additional storage there's a microSD slot. As for Linux, it's actually supported right out of the box [xda-developers.com] (on my Pentium N4200 model anyway). It is just the terminal though so if you want something like Ubuntu you'll need to install that on your own via developer mode.

Buy now and research before picking up. You dont happen to have a benchmark between the two do you?

the new is 1 year warranty and the other is 90 day?
