It's main purpose is to install chromeOS on other laptops, but it's worth giving a shot. It works on a lot of devices.

Mediatek is innovating at a really good pace. Love this new chipset for high-end chromebooks

Love it!!!
Lightweight & affordable.

But google support for the device is too short.
It doesn't receive update, and can't be installed alternative OS.
That's the story of my only Chromebook.

Now,
I'm back to supporting linux.
And suggesting normal pc instead of Chromebook

Mediatek, Exynos and Snapdragon need to work together with Google to significantly improve the Chromebook Platform. Right now, its mostly a lousy low energy laptop replacement, that really isn't geared for any seroous productivity work.

A 1300T has no succesor and is likely that might be called 1500 later.

Basically a 1300T with no 5G support and downgraded GPU. It shouldn't be called 1380 as people would think that it's the better CPU when in reality it's not. 1280 should make better sense.
