Sorry that doesn't help much but at 230 the Acer may be worth a punt but I would be expecting it to be frustratingly slow in a couple of years.
    I've had Acer laptops and been fine with them but I've never been bothered much by aesthetics.
    I find all windows PC start slowing down from day 1, so kinda expect it. This is just for mrs T to use social media and online shopping.

    I'd have the one with a full OS, I had a chromebook and found it lacking, for my needs anyway.

    Random googled website, but I've read it elsewhere on sites I'd trust.
