    I won this Chromebook 11 WiFi in a competition run by Google towards the end of last year and, due to the brief recall of this model due to overheating chargers have only just taken receipt of it.

    Since I already have a MacBook Air and iPad Mini, I really can't justify another mobile computer. By all accounts they are fantastic machines, and the fact that they can be charged using the same usb cable as your phone is an amazing feature. I'd love to hang onto it, but I just don't have the requirement. As such I'm offering this Chromebook 11 for sale. It's brand new in box and will be sent to the purchaser in the shipping materials supplied by Google.

    It's the blue and white WiFi model and comes with a £15 credit for the Google Play Store to get you started. If you need more info, check out these reviews

    Google HP Chromebook 11 Review: How Much Laptop Do You Get For £230?

    Retail price is £229 for the laptop, so with the Play voucher you're getting £245 worth of brand new kit for £220 delivered. Plus they're hard to get your hands on at the moment.

    Price and currency: £220
    Delivery: Delivery cost is Included
    Payment method: BT or PPG
    Location: Glasgow

    Open to sensible offers on this. It's going to sit gathering dust and I'd rather see it go to a good home :smashin:

    Hey, thanks for the offer Marekj.

    Going by this link HP Chromebook 11. Made with Google it appears that you also get two years worth of 100GB Google Drive storage, worth about £80 in itself too!

    If you'd be willing to meet me a little closer, I'd let it go for £200 without the Play credit voucher, or £210 with. If you're interested fire me a PM and I'll get it posted out on Monday. :smashin:

    You interested in any trades for this?

    I have a 2x 8GB Patriot Viper 3 low profile 2133 mhz ram, one month old plus some cash on top.

    Could meet up as I'm local

    UPDATE

    Just read a review & see it doesn't have HDMI. So will withdraw my interest

    Price drop. I'll now let this go for £190 delivered for the Chromebook only - that's £40 (about 17%) off retail for a BNIB laptop that only launched in the past month.

    Good morning Fruvos,

    Is this still for sale? If we could come to an agreement on price (the BT would be made instantly), would you be able to post tomorrow?

    All the best,

    Danny

    Excellent. I'd like to offer £180 delivered for both the Chromebook and £15 voucher with payment made by BT today.

    All the best,

    Cheers for the offer Danny, but that's just too low I'm afraid. This is a brand new, unopened Chromebook worth £230.

    At £180 for both that's a 25% discount over retail (and that's not including two years Google Drive costs etc too).

    The asking is £190 for the laptop only - £40 less than the retail price. I'm going to hold out for that for a little while longer I'm afraid.

    OK just to keep everything in thread

    I will take it at £180 don't think I need the voucher as not much you can spend it on not having an android phone.

    PM me your bank details and we can set this up ;)
