    A direct currency conversion is about £283 which is to much for a Chromebook, its more likely to be over £300 here.
    Its a reasonably decent looking machine though. If it was around £200 i would think about trying one.

    When they drop to around £200 mark I might get one for the kids, smart looking piece of kit too.

    I would pay this price if it was full windows 8. Judging by HP's own stream line up windows licences (with bing) must be pretty cheap

    Tegra isn't x86, so you wouldn't be running Windows on it any time soon.

    Maybe that will change in future versions of Windows, but it's not possible yet.

    Yes it is x86 but you need a Windows RT OS

    Tegra?

    Tegra is ARM, and RT is a different OS written for ARM, not full Windows.

    x86 generally refers definition, the term may also be used to differentiate 32-bit hardware and software.
    The Tegra K1 which come in two types a Cortex-A15 R3 (32-bit) or Denver "ARMv8-A" (64-bit) with same GPU GK20A (Kepler).
    Windows RT due to the different architecture of ARM-based devices compared to other x86 devices so there for has software compatibility limitations unless the dev rewrite the software to make it work for that architecture, Do keep in mind that Microsoft Windows is a cross-architecture-platform OS that at time even supported Alpha, MIPS processor and know what else.

    I'm not sure what exactly you're getting at now, but x86 is *not* a way to differentiate 32 and 64 bit hardware. It is an instruction set. ARM is another, completely different instruction set.

    What you may be getting confused with, are terms like x86/i386/i686 or x86-64/AMD64/x64 used to describe versions of software. These are terms specific to this ISA are cannot be universally used as replacements for '32 bit' or '64 bit', which if I read you right, is what you're essentially saying. ARM has nothing to do with x86/AMD64 or the others listed above.

    You said:

    Tegra is not x86 compatible; it is ARM compatible.

    Current versions of full Windows simply aren't cross-platform. RT cannot be considered a full Windows version in its current state. It's not impossible that we'll see ARM versions of Windows in the future if the demand arises, but as I said, not yet.
