Selling as I have replaced this with a MacBook. Is a great Chromebook with plenty of speed, the ability to run Android apps and also (soon) Linux apps. Has a touchscreen with a stylus, 2x USB-C ports and a headphone jack.

 

Exact model here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071LB1GG4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 

 

Screen Size: 12.3 inches
Screen Resolution: 2400 x 1600
Processor: 0.9 GHz Intel Core M-5Y10 Processor
RAM: 4 GB DDR3
Hard Drive: 16 GB Flash Memory Solid State
Graphics Coprocessor: Intel HD Graphics 515

 

This Chromebook has a really good screen (comparable, if not, better than the MacBook Retina displays) and has great performance thanks to its Core M3 Processor.

There is a small scratch at the bottom otherwise it is in near perfect condition. Purchased from Amazon September 25, 2017 and it cost me over $900NZD to import. Selling with a USB-C adapter (stock one that came with it, has a US-NZ adapter epoxied to it) and laptop only. I don't believe I have the box for this.

 

Looking for $500 which is cheaper than importing the ARM based Chromebook Plus to NZ. Either pickup in Wellington or can ship.

Interested in buying, like the 3:2 aspect ratio screen. Can you advise where to buy a rubberised / rugged case as my child will use at school and I know it will get a good hard beating (BYOD). Can the ram and hard drive be upgraded (in such a case, does Chromebook OS install like any other OS via USB?). How is the battery life on it?

Not sure sorry... It is however made of Aluminium and quite durable.

No. And via USB (ChromeOS Recovery).

 

How is the battery life on it?

 

Approx. 6-10 hours depending on load - I can't really put a proper time on this however it is an all-day contender, and have actually worked off this for a whole workday without charging.
