If you're buying a chromebook just keep in mind, not all chromebooks support Android Apps at the moment. A list of chromebooks with Android app support, sorted by brand, can be found here: https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps 

My old inspiron is too heavy, loud and generally crap for uni. I'm looking for a cheap laptop that doesn't have to be powerful. I have literally 3 criteria:

  • Light and not too big
  • Powerful enough to run Lightroom (Doesn't have to do it fast)
  • At least 1080p with decent colour reproduction (green=yellow on my dell)

I'm in the UK and cant find anything that fits within my budget, what's the cheapest I'll be able to get these specs for? Its also difficult to find data on screen quality.

 

Any suggestions?

Dell XPS 13 might fit the bill although how much are you willing to pay

Half that? Is that realistic at all? Lightroom runs fast enough on my 1.8GHz dual core so an i3 or maybe even a Celeron might do. The constraint seems to be screen quality

Still out of my budget, I think I'm being optimistic :(

Can Lightroom be run on a chromebook?

It has Android app support, so the Android version of lightroom runs great on it, yeah.
