I bought this laptop to replace a four-year-old Chromebook I have (because Google only supports models for about two years). Before wiping it and installing CloudReady on it I had a play and for a budget device, it ran things very smoothly. It certainly slew the various laptops I had lying around that were still working.
It runs ChromeOS great but ironically I don't use it enough because I also have a desktop PC for heavier surfing sessions. Still it gets the job done. For the price, it's very good.
