Out of my element here - I know lots about desktops and have built several for friends and family. But know nothing about laptops.
Has anyone seen a good listing on a laptop that would meet the criteria in the title? Basically looking for the best laptop hardware for under $300.
Thanks in advance everyone.
Bi-Weekly Chromebook Buying Advice Thread: Jan 1 - 15 [R]1 year, 7 months agoFrankPapageorgio posted submission on chromeos.

Happy New Year, everybody! And welcome to the bi-weekly Chrome OS buying advice thread! If you're looking to purchase a Chromebook, Chromebox, Chromebase, or Chromebit, you've come to the right place!
How to Ask for Buying Advice
In order to receive the best suggestions on your next Chrome OS computer, we will need to know what best suits your needs. Please match the follow criteria when asking for suggestions:
First: Do you already have a specific model in mind?
If you do, that's great! You've already narrowed things down for us. It's okay if you have no models in mind, or if you're a newbie. If Chrome OS is new territory for you, please consult the sidebar for more information on the operating system.
What is your price range? Although Chromebooks are mostly known for being inexpensive, there are many high-end (and thus more expensive) Chrome OS devices available.
Performance & Use Case
Is this for casual browsing or heavy web-based work? Do you plan to install a different operating system? Let us know what your performance needs are.
If you plan to game on your Chrome OS device, either with Android apps or by installing another OS, check out r/chromebookgaming.
Unfortunately, only not every Chromebook has stable access to the Google Play Store. Are you looking for an Android-ready Chromebook, or is this a lower priority for you?
Type & Functionality
Chromebooks come in three varieties: Traditional clamshell laptops without a touchscreen, clamshells with touchscreens, and 2-in-1 convertibles.
There are also a few other factors to take into consideration, such as: * Display quality: * Display type (e.g., Do you prefer matte or glossy screens?) * Do you want / need a backlit keybaord? * Do you want / need a stylus? * Portability * Would a desktop solution like a Chromebox or Chromebase suit you better?
There are, of course, many others factors you may be considering. Or maybe you're not picky and just want a quick and easy suggestion. Whatever it is, let us know and we'll be happy to help!
Do you want a ruggedized Chroembook that can take a beating? How about a sleek and classy aluminum shell? Or do you just want whatever's the least expensive?
Availability (Where are you From?)
Unfortunately, the availability of Chrome OS computers outside the United States is severely lacking. If you don't live in the United States, please let us know.

I need a cheap Chromebook.
I am between these two:
ASUS Chromebook C300SA Compact 13.3 Inch (Intel Celeron, 4GB, 16GB eMMC, Black) - $170
Samsung Chromebook 3, 11.6", 4GB RAM, 16GB eMMC, Chromebook (XE500C13-K04US) - $160
Screen size aside, any benefit to one over the other?

Looking for an affordable lightweight remote developing (vim + tmux over ssh) machine [R]2 years agohungry_penguin posted submission on linuxhardware.
July 22, 2017
I'm currently owning a Thinkpad T420 with an i5, 265GB SSD and 8GB of Ram. I'm studying computer science, but I'm not really happy with this laptop. The main reason for that is that it gets quite hot and then really loud quite soon (1), the battery normally only lasts for around 2-3 hours (2) and with its 4.9 lb it's not really easy to carry around (3).
So recently I kinda liked the idea to do all my development in a VPS over SSH with Vim and Tmux etc. The benefits are that my local processor doesn't need to run a heavy IDE anymore and finally I've got a quite and cool laptop. Problem (1) solved. But now I'm wondering if I really need such a powerful machine anymore and if I aren't better of selling and exchanging it to solve (2) and (3) as well.
So I want a notebook/netbook/chromebook/or even tablet + external keyboard replacement which doesn't has a noticeable lag in normal browsing (including an HD YouTube Stream once in a while etc.), is lightweight (the lightest the better), has enough battery for one full workday (minimum of 8 hours), doesn't needs to use it's fan too often and which has a decent keyboard (I type a lot).
It would be nice if the screen is readable for outside use as well.
By now I found the Dell Chromebook 13, it has a good keyboard, amazing battery, but it isn't as lightweight (3.23lbs ) as some 11 inch notebooks (under 2.4ibs) which I'd actually prefer, and the screen is probably not bright enough for the outside use.
I've thought about buying a used Macbook Air 11 as well, but I aren't sure which version of it is "too old" and if it won't be too expensive with all the adapters I then need to buy…
Some of the devices I found fulfill a lot of my desired criterias, but then they cost tons of money or have a really crappy keyboard. Sometimes I even think the best would be to buy an x86 windows tablet and install Linux on it and use it with a bluetooth keyboard.
Thanks for your help!

i'm currently using crouton on an asus c300
battery life is over 12 hours and the laptop itself is very lightweight. I really like it for travelling since it was only $200.
so far the biggest issue for me is the 1366x768 screen. its really tough seeing everything i need to when running intellij. i'm currently looking for a replacement, but dont want to spend more than 300

First thing I could dig up: ~~https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834234434&ignorebbr=1~~
Found it on Amazon with Prime shipping for the same price: https://www.amazon.com/Chromebook-C300SA-Compact-Intel-Celeron/dp/B01MG696PV/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1485538866&sr=8-1&keywords=ASUS%2BC300SA-DH02&th=1
Not great but not bad either for a new item. Should perform pretty well, especially running ChromeOS.
