Under the “specs” tab, memory is “your choice” of 4g or 8g; but on the drop-down, both choices say 4g. Which is right?
The pulldown menu offers me two choices, but the specs list 3 different processor options and 2 RAM levels.
Also (and I’m less sure on this), the prices on the two options shown available for purchase are a surprise to me - I’ve had expected the Pentium processor based one to be less expensive. Could be condition or something I just don’t know, though.
Looks like the ‘fixed’ the price on the pentium – but still didn’t introduce the high end (presumably 299) option. I pulled the trigger on the 249 – but if the 8 GB model with a better proc is available for only $50 more, I would have preferred that one… =/
Hey all! They are both 4GB as noted in the drop down.
Is this an IPS display? “UWVA” == “IPS”?
Will this run apps from the google Play store?
UWVA = Ultra Wide Viewing Angle
Looks like a great deal… If I had the extra $$$ right now I’d be all over it…
Does anyone know if there is a plan of bringing it back?
I got the pentium version. The m3’s are sold out. Doubt it will be that much of a difference as the chrome OS is very optimized and can run on a lot less.
I ordered the M3 version, but what arrived is the Pentium version. I’ve emailed customer support.
Wow thats not cool. I would get the refund for the difference as the m3 would not make to much of a difference from the Pentium. What condition did it come in. Did it look like new?
What condition did it came in. Like new?
Ordered M3 version. A like new/new with cheaper processor came. VERY DISAPPOINTED !!! What’s the point of a really nice Chromebook with a CPU that will be slooooooow!!!
From reviews on line, there is not that much difference from the pentium version and m3. Its the m5 thats the powerhouse.
Also just noticed this.
Bought Chromebook for M3 processor and ONE YEAR HP warranty. As I mentioned, I got the cheaper CPU, BUT also, the box lists only a 90 day warranty !!!
I didn’t bother opening it and left it at work. I can check it on Monday for you if you still don’t get yours. I wanted it for doing some bioinformatics in linux for my job and while the m3 isn’t ideal, it’s still faster than my giant 7 year old first gen i3 I’m lugging around. Same can’t really be said for the pentium. The zipso page shows the m3 at about 1.5x the pentium. Who knows what that means but I like numbers. You’re right, the m5 looks like the best bang for the buck.
The pentium is a fine compared to all other chromebooks, but compared to the $20 more m3 I wanted it’s just going to make me annoyed. I’m only human.
Might as well start saving for a asus flip from some other vendor. I don’t buy laptops often enough to justify this.
Mine seems to be indistinguishable from a new one. My uses are lightweight enough that CPU isn’t a big factor. Woot offered to contact the vendor to see if they had the m3 version, who apparently never got back to them. They also offered me a full return or a partial refund and I choose the latter. I think it’ll be “good enough” for me. Screen is pretty sweet, and that’s the most important thing to me.
