Acer 11.6" Chromebook C740-C3P1

Ok. Before I get to my copypasta, I just want to talk about the specs. Once I don’t usually talk about. But it’s there, and it’s listed, so lets talk.

Has anyone ever seen a hard drive that has 1 RPM? I mean, I’ve never seen a Chromebook with a hard drive in it, let alone one that has a hard drive of a single revolution per minute. Funny enough, it lists an SSD elsewhere. But man, someone screwed up somewhere.

(Note: incase it gets removed, the specs for this currently list “Hard Drive Rotational Speed 1 RPM”

Thanks for that detour; lets get back to our regularly scheduled copypasta.

WARNING - DO NOT BUY

End of Life date not clearly specificed in specs - Woot is just being lazy now. Would you buy a gallon of milk with no date on it but told to go consult this chart to decipher the block and lot code to determine when it’s going to expire? No? It’s the same thing with this Chromebook. The End of Life date should be CLEARLY AND CONCISELY stated in the specs. It ALWAYS suspicious when it’s not.

Screen resolution isn’t the greatest, but is what it is at this price point.

Woot Staff: The End Of Life date should be at the top of the specs; it’s the single most important spec when buying a Chromebook/box ESPECIALLY considering Chrome based devices have a limited update lifetime. I see you’ve started putting the information in blue and while that’s a start, the information is still at the bottom of the specs.
