[UK] Looking for some advice regarding Chromebooks and streaming


Oct 18, 2013
I'm in the market for something that can stream be used for general web browsing, and streaming Netflix, local media and online videos to my TV. It seems that a Chromebook and Chromecast might be what I'm looking for here?

I have no idea what kind of specs are necessary for this (my only real hardware knowledge is regarding higher end gaming PCs) and would really appreciate some advice. Budget is about £300 but cheaper would be better if possible. If the Chrome route isn't optimal then alternative suggestions are welcome too.

Please don't recommend models not available in the UK. Plus points if they're available on UK Amazon.
