Hey all, Its been awhile since I posted on here... jeesh I can't believe that mechanical keyboard thread is still going. Anyway: I'm looking to get a cheap and cheerful notebook which I can take on my travels. I have a PC for games, so this will be for: movies, browsing and viewing documents (although I won't complain if it'll run something like Half-Life). This is for travelling so my main concerns are battery life and portability/weight. But other than that: Size: between 12" and 15.6" (more bias towards the latter) Cost: < £350. Could go over budget if the difference is worth it, but for the little time I'll be using the notebook I'd like to keep costs low. __ Main reason I'm posting is I've seen Chromebooks offering reasonable specs for £200-250, any recommendations from people who've used one before? I know the OS is very basic, but I've read a bit on installing Windows/Linux on a Chromebook - something I'm leaning towards as I think I'd get much better bang for buck (plus I have a spare Windows key). Thanks!
