Updates through June 2027, you’ll have 6 more years of updates remaining (out of six years) which is AMAZING 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”
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.
If this were 1080p I’d grab it in a heartbeat
I know that feeling all too well.
