    Does anyone use a Chromebook? Are they any good, is it a potential replacement for a laptop?

    I only use my laptop for general internet, e-mails, office. I also transfer photos from my camera/phone and then back them up onto an external HDD.

    I can get a Chromebook for under £200, a half decent laptop is double that amount.

    Opinions on Chromebooks welcomed. I don't want a tablet, I need a bigger screen.

    I had a chrome book a while back and couldn't get my head round it. Check Tesco outlet on ebay for laptops around £200

    Anything particular that you didn't like with the Chromebook?

    Oh ok, I see. I have been having a read through about them and I think I will bite the bullet and get one, sounds like they will do what I want them to do. I'm technically minded anyway, so I should have no problems, thanks for your input though.
