This Chromebook's phone-like Snapdragon processor doesn't bring the performance boost we hoped for, but a solid keyboard, touchpad, and screen combiation all help to make this a satisfying Chromebook.

The introduction of Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c here assures battery longevity, the option of 4G on-the-go connectivity, and no limit to Chrome OS' functionality. No, the screen and overall spec won't blow your socks off, but that's not the point of this machine. It's all about being affordable, flexible - thanks to that 360-degree hinge - and is a real workhorse.

What's more it's available from £399/$399, and so could well be one of the leading budget options once it launches.
