Bargain Watch: Samsung Chromebook 550 3G - £299

11 posts in this topic

You know by now that we at MoDaCo love our Chromebooks and are excited about the long term future of the Operating System.

If you fancy trying out ChromeOS then you won't go far wrong with Samsung's 550 model. Curry's are currently selling the Wi-Fi and 3G model for £299 brand new, which is a great price for the BEST Chromebook which has been selling for £429.

Okay, there is the pixel, but that is £1,000+, putting it a little out of reach. :)

The 550 screen blows the £229 ARM version away and the CPU has far more of a kick to it too.

All in all, a very good price. Don't forget 1.51% cashback at TopCashBack too.

Visit the Currys website to buy or for more details.

What's great about the 3G enabled Chromebook is you can then get a SIM from Samba or Ovivo and have FREE internet on it whilst out and about. :)

Check out the MoDaCo article on the subject:

Weirdly at Amazon that makes the 3G and WiFI versions the same price!

Nice find! Got a little extra off buying through topcashback and PCWorld.

Also picked up an Ovivo sim to go with it.

Thanks for the tip.

Note, Wi-Fi version of the 550 is now showing at just £269.99 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Series-Wi-Fi-Chromebook-Silver/dp/B007ZZ18S6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364391535&sr=8-1

Whilst the 3G & Wi-Fi is STILL showing £299 on Currys using the link in the original post.

Looks like £299 is the new price point as both Amazon and Curry's still have the 3G model at under 300 quid. :)

Chrome OS - what a mess. We have Linux, Mac OS and Windows - what on earth do we need Chrome OS for?

LOL
