We get a lot of emails and comments from our friends across the pond asking how they can get their hands on new Chrome OS devices. The selection in the UK, Australia and other countries is very limited compared to that of the United States. We hope to see the Chromebook market continue to expand for our Chromie companions around the globe but in the mean time we want to make sure we stay on top of the best deals available to you now.
December 26th or as many in the Commonwealth of Nations call it, Boxing Day, has evolved into a major shopping holiday. Much like Black Friday in the U.S., Boxing Day sales notably the biggest shopping events of the year as retailers offer dramatic savings on every type of product imaginable to drive consumers to their shops.
Chrome OS devices, as limited as they may be, are no exception.
This year for Boxing Day, LaptopsDirect is offering a trolley full of Chromebooks at discounted prices but the one that caught my eye is the Acer Chromebook 14.
The all-aluminum 14″ Chromebook has become a hot item here for the holidays and now it seems the Acer is showing off abroad as well. I have been using this very Chromebook for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. I could go on about it for sometime but i digress. Instead, here’s a few of the key specs:
- Intel Celeron N3160 Quad-Core Processor 1.6GHz
- 100% Aluminum Chassis
- Google Chrome Operating System
- 14″ Full HD ComfyView Widescreen IPS LED-backlit Display (1920 x 1080)
- 4GB LPDDR3 SDRAM Memory
- 32GB Internal Storage
- Intel HD Graphics
- Two Built-in Speakers
- Bluetooth 4.2
- 2 – USB 3.0 Ports
- 1 – HDMI port with HDCP Support
This device is factory refurbished and comes with a full 3-month warranty for only £189.87! Considering a new Acer Chromebook 14 with the lesser N3060 Braswell and only 2GB ram will run you £260 on Amazon, this is a tough deal to pass up.
Did I mention this device will be getting Android Apps in the very near future? I have them running on my Acer as we speak thanks to a few tweaks and let me tell you, they run as smooth as silk.
If you’re looking for an above average Chromebook that looks about as premium as they come, the Acer 14 may be right up your alley. You can pick one of these lovelies up today from LaptopsDirect at the link below.
To all our readers home and abroad, let us know if you come across a deal to good to beat. We’d love to share. Drop us a line or comment below.
Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day
