I have one of these; IMO, the concern is not the Celeron - this is Chrome and the chromebook is plenty speedy.

The security updates for this chromebook stopping in June is the relevant concern, but the way it's worded, Google is not stopping updates for sure, but has the option to do so.

Finally, it may be worth noting that this is one of the few Chromebooks that has a removable/upgradeable HD.

Read the listing before buying it:

Note: Grade B refers to units that may have dents, chips or scuffs on the body, keyboard may be shiny or worn down and hair line scratches or scuffs on the screen.

Performance on these is still good for older folks who don't do much other than light browsing and emails. My mom has been using her daily for many years now and never had any issues.

I've searched a bit to find our what you mean and can't find anything specific. Can you point me in a direction or a specific site that'll explain? I'm in the market for a chromebook but you're the second person on SD I've heard about the security issues coming

This is the legendary C720. Irl, it seriously outperforms its specs. For anyone wanting to dip their toes into the Chromebook-O-Sphere for not much money, this would be a good intro.

I bought a refurbished C720 a couple of years ago for $150.
Within a few months the keyboard malfunctioned and did not work correctly.
I had to use the interface keyboard. Very frustrating.

Chromebooks are only committed to have Chrome updates for 5 years. It apparently could be longer, but no guarantees.

Got one of these. A great streaming and downloading machine. I put Linux on it too. perfect for traveling w your media and even light work. Also a great retropie machine. Bought a pair of USB snes controllers for $7 on Amazon and couldn't be happier. Will even run Speedrunners

Yes, this is a really good old Chromebook that's still faster then many of today's models. $60.00 is a decent deal if you get a nice one. A few of my Chromebooks stopped getting updates over a year ago and are still performing well. Ebay may be a better option to find a mint C720 or 740. I've recently picked up a few mint Acer C710s with 1007U processors for peanuts. I actually prefer my old 11" Acers over some of my newer Chromebooks.
