Main uses will be for uni work, so internet browsing and note taking, do any of these come with office and is it possible to get, or just google docs?

Well, the HP 14 would not be a bad laptop at all. If you feel that it is better for multitasking go ahead although internet browsing and notetaking does not take much.

Any other reccomendations? I found that one online for the same £229 which seems like a decent price. Are there any in the same price range that have 4gb of ram. would 2gb be too low?

2gb would be fine but if you open a lot of tabs while browsing it tends to be laggy.

would try ebay . not sure if you mind used though.

I personally wouldn't trust used electronics on eBay as it could be pretty sketchy.

I think the Acer c720 probably accounts for 30% of all Chromebooks sold, i.e. its the #1 seller. It is very compact, has a great set of ports, and the fastest CPU of any Chromebook (Celeron 2955U and i3-4005, both are the fastest in their class). On amazon the c720 is the #4 selling laptop.

Most of the Chromebooks this year have a SIGNIFICANTLY slower processor, the N2840, a 4-cpu ATOM processor, which is about 25%-40% slower than the Celeron 2955U. See www.passmark.com for full details.

Atm I'm considering either the c720p or the hp 14 (the 4gb ram version with 16gb ssd) http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/1471724.htm#pdpFullProductInformation

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgX40ImDjxI This video makes them look pretty comparable and I feel if I wanted to multitask the hp 14 would be better. Any thoughts?
