I know that it's just a cheap Chromebook, but I do hate the idea of having a 12" screen and then a massive 1.5" bezel around the whole thing. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a 12" screen.
Looks like the video is Indonesian, but hey there is still "Indian" in it, with "ones" in-between. Almost there. Wish it had subtitles. Big Grin

I purchased it. I am still rocking my Acer C720 which fits perfectly next to my work computer. My only complaint is the non-IPS screen and the battery that is starting to lose life. If this gets me slightly more screen real-estate and a faster processor that's a bonus.

Lower HD resolution is completely sufficient for the screen size, resolution and viewing distance.

This is a 3:2 ratio screen and it make web life even better when just cruising as a laptop:

edit: lol, sorry for the bogus link...


This screen is IPS covered by gorilla glass. It works great and looks decent. 180 degree hinge.

usb-c charging.

To bad it wasn't the Spin 512 because then it would have a garaged WACOM EMR stylus... almost!

Is there a way to increase the memory? Is 32gb enough?

one of these days .. 1080p plus touch screen in this price..
Touchscreen on a laptop is useless to be honest. This isn't a tablet. This is a laptop..... I have a Acer Spin 1 that folds into either laptop or tablet and has touchscreen. It is too thick and heavy to comfortably use in tablet mode with the touchscreen over a tablet so I much prefer to just use it as a laptop. Use a thin and light tablet for touchscreen capability. More work for me to use touchscreen on a laptop over the touchpad or mouse too.

As for 1080p? My Acer Spin 1 (paid $150 sale.... Big fan of my Acer) is also 720p and I have no issue with it at all. The picture quality is still HD and looks good. The bigger PRO for this is that it has an IPS screen rather than an LED/LCD screen. My Acer Spin 1 has the LED/LCD so this IPS screen is going to look better, brighter and more crisp. Nothing wrong with LED/LCD but I do prefer if it had IPS. IPS > 1080p to me..... When one pays $129 or budget prices, it only makes sense that it will use the budget screen and budget processor. The budget processor will handle the 720p screen quality better. Chrome OS is also less demanding so budget processors works very well. For some odd reason, the mid-range processors used by chromebooks drastically increases the price by a lot and more than PC laptops with mid-range processors. Is it needed? Eh. I thought about the i3 HP Chromebook and the sale price wasn't there. I don't know why anyone would consider an expensive powerful processor for Chrome OS.

Military Grade
It can take a 60kg weight, the shock absorbent bumper and reinforced design protect components and it can survive drops from 122cm. The unique drainage design means 330ml of liquid can be spilled over the keyboard.

* I remember seeing the other models built like this. It can take more of a beating than other laptops. This is also a good option for children who beat up the computers and bring their laptops to school. It seems like elementary schools are favoring Chrome OS over PC or IOS to me.
