Does it come with the stylus? The photos show a red-colored insert in that spot, is it just a dummy plug or a Lenovo stylus? Thanks in advance!

Good catch. According to the internet the red (rechargeable) Lenovo stylus is $42 the black $22.

Some models do not have the digitizer built in to support the pen - so have the plug in the spot where one would go; so uncertain for this offer.

If you’re getting this to run a non-ChromeOS OS, it’s new enough that firmware write protection is handled by a dedicated chip, not a screw on the motherboard. You’ll need a SuzyQ debug cable to turn off write protection and flash new firmware.

I bought one of these for my kids when they were last up here a month ago, and mine came with a stylus. I haven’t used it much, so I can’t speak to it.

Otherwise, the Chromebook is solidly built and fast. We have been really pleased with it. Handles middle schoolers tasks with ease. For the price, its a no brainer.

I’m so sad this sold out while I was checking out. :frowning: Can find the exact one anywhere for less than $300, gather the pitch forks and torches!

Dang it! :confounded:
This isn’t the first time these were sold here so hopefully someone from Woot! will answer this question about weather the red “plug” is an included stylus or not before they try to sell more. For my purposes the stylus makes this a great buy over it being just a decent buy.

They’re new so we’re assuming so but we won’t know until we get Amazon to look at actual inventory. That can take a few days.

If that verification can be done it’d be much appreciated! Recently these have already been for sale twice so I expect they will be again soon, hopefully. Thank you. :+1:

So what’s the word on the street?

That was a while ago but I think the pen was include.d
