I found this little guy hiding here among the “adult” laptops. Welp, lets get to it!
Updates through June 2022, you’ll have 1 more MONTH of updates remaining (out of six years) which is about right for what Woot sells. After that date, no security updates / bug fixes / etc will be released for this device. ALL Chrome based devices have a limited ‘shelf life’ as, “All Chrome OS devices now receive regular upgrades for a minimum of six and a half years from when their chipset first appeared on the platform”
DO NOT BUY unless you’re looking for a Chromebook to tinker with and know how to load an alternate OS onto this device (and, no, it’s not like loading windows).
Screen resolution isn’t the greatest, and even though this isn’t an expensive device we’re at the point where a 1080p screen is NOT an expensive part to manufacture.
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 (6 years from the first date of manufacture). I see the information in blue in the specs and while that’s a start, the information is still at the bottom of the specs.
