[Memory Express] Acer Chromebook C731-C11A - $189.99 - Celeron N3060, 2GB, 16GB, 11.6in

Sale for a cheap Acer Chromebook at Memory Express. I actually just bought one of these a couple of days ago and it surprised me so I figure I would share. I was concerned about the 2GB RAM at first but I was able to run Linux through Crouton and xfce with no problem. Keep in mind I just have IDLE open and a few terminal windows, so don't expect to rock like 15 tabs of videos and ads and have this thing work well. Picked it up for a beater that I could cart around and treat like garbage to learn a bit of coding on. The C731 is actually build for kids at school so it is pretty durable and is made to withstand drops and spills.

***Heads up - the screen is garbage and it has a french keyboard, but I definitely still think it's worth it for what it is.***

Specs:

Intel® Celeron® N3060 processor (1.60GHz, dual-core)
11.6" Full HD (1,366 x 768) 16:9 IPS display w/ ComfyView Technology
2GB LPDDR3 SDRAM
16GB eMMC storage
Intel® HD Graphics
Google Chrome OS
HDMI, USB 3.0 ports

Hate to say it, but the specs on this are right on the edge of not being usable. Unless you NEED the laptop formfactor, getting an android tablet will get you much better performance value(below or above the $190 figure)

RAM is only 2GB. I recommend 4GB version because my 2GB chrome book always is out of memory
