Acer is a well-known name in Chromebooks manufacturing because they had delivered some of the best Chromebooks to the date. This mentioned Chromebook is another compact, efficient, budget-friendly, and best seller portable that Acer has to offer. A low priced laptop is not only useful for gamers but students and business people too due to great specs, excellent battery life, and portability.

Design: The 2.4 pounds convertible laptop has a compact design and decent size, which makes it easy to carry in a bag. It has an all white plastic exterior with a micro-diamond pattern on the lid, which provides extra grip while holding it. The surface has certain ruggedness, which prevents smudges and scratches.

Chromebook comes with the 11.6 inch IPS LED display and 1366x768p resolution. It hosts ComfyView Widescreen and IPS technology, which provides a better viewing experience at any angle. The matte display provides an anti-glare trait that prevents eye strain in case of long hours of gaming or work. Moreover, it offers decent brightness and color contrast.

It has a standard chuckle keyboard with no backlit. The keys are clear, well balanced, have more extensive key travel distance, and offer good tactile feedback. Though, the keyboard is not wide but small and still gives a comfortable typing experience. The spacious touchpad has been placed in the center and sensitive to multi-gestures. The mechanical clicks are not so responsive and sometimes get stuck.

Pros Cons
  • Excellent Display
  • Longer Battery Life
  • Decent performance
  • Small keyboard
  • Downward speakers
  • Limited internal storage

Performance: The CPU has dual-core Intel Celeron N2840 with turbo boost 2.16GHz up to 2.58GHz,2GB DDR3L SDRAM, and 16GB SSD. It offers basic performance as expected from this price range but gets the task done efficiently. The storage space is low, and you can fulfill it by using 100GB Google cloud storage. As for GPU, it comes powered with Intel HD Graphics, which gives a decent visual experience, and graphics do not lag during gaming. 

Battery: Acer claims to have 9 hours of battery, and it pretty much lasts that long under basic tasks. But gaming will make the battery drains fast, and it may last a little less.

For connectivity, it offers only USB 2.0 port and a USB 3.0 port for faster transfer of files, an HDMI out port for connecting the device to larger screens, an SD card reader for extra memory, and a headphone jack. In terms of wireless connection, the laptop supports dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The Chromebook is really an over sized tablet. What I love is that it is super lightweight and has a long battery life. Runs solely on apps. So if a program you need to use does not have an app, it will not run on the Chromebook. Personally think the functionality could be improved so that it would be more like a laptop.However, if all you are wanting to do is stream Youtube videos, access social media sites, and/or general web browsing, it will be the best device you could ever buy. When using the hotspot boxes or jetpacks for data, be sure to turn off the setting that leaves the wifi on while the device is hibernating by going into the advance settings in the device settings. Otherwise, you will easily go through 10gb of data within 2 days. I know that from personal experience. Goes through data quickly. Not sure why that is. However, it is from personal experience that I can use up 10gb of data within 2 weeks on my Chromebook, yet it takes me 30 days to use up 5gb on my phone and tablet. Things to keep in mind.

Works great!

Currently using to write this review. I love my Chromebook, I got it so that I can start studying, but didn't want to get an actual computer with a tower and all the things that went with it, because it would just be too expensive. This was in my budget, and it works great! My only complaint is that after about 2 weeks of using it, the right click option no longer works on the mouse pad part, which is a little annoying when you go to right click on something, but I'll manage. Overall, great purchase, I would recommend!

Perfect start for a kiddo!!!

Purchased 3 in total for my children. Arrived in excellent condition, packaging was on point, setup was easy! Great purchase for a first time kiddo to have their own computer and for access to all their educational tools!

Great battery, very compact, not great for switching between docs or screens, missing standard key functions

Quick enough and has great battery life - I have had it about 4 months now and consistently get about 7 hours of use from a single charge.Hate that there's no caps lock, home or end keys, or delete button. Makes for a lot of extra clicking about. Screen size not optimal for studentdom, but I am making it work. Overall, for the price, I'm happy with it. I could have spent another $300 for a bigger machine, but the compact and light nature of this makes it easy to bring anywhere. It even fits in my camelback bag!

I like it. I had one before this so I'm familiar with it. I was happy to see my bookmarks and passwords were already there because they were saved in google. The only thing I don't like is the missing delete button. The need to use the delete and backspace buttons slow down my typing. I hope I get used to it soon because it's driving me nuts.

Too good to be true

I've had the chromebook less than a week and freezes ALOT and the attached picture appears. Imagine force shutting it down every single time while watching a video (quite frustrating). When connected to tv through a hmdi cable, the video will not appear. Only sound can be heard but no picture. Online forums do not have a solution on how to make the video show either. I'm in the process of returning it and getting my money back.

as psychically the condition was excellent. It runs as expected

My wife purchased this, as she was tired of sharing my ASUS chromebook. I didn't even know this was re-furbished, as psychically the condition was excellent. It runs as expected, connecting to our wifi network smoothly and running at expected speeds. The battery life is holding excellently, about 12-13 hours between charges.

Christmas Gift! Good Buy!

Bought 2 of these for my daighters for Christmas. They still have them 6 months later. They're easy to use. Small and durable. The batteries seem to last for a good day or two depending on use. They watch movies and videos with them. My children are 10 and 12 so for their age and how they handle things. One more careful then the other they are both still in excellent shape. We were lucky to get a great deal without seeing them first and buying online.

Great laptop for the price!

I am a college student and mostly use it for homework. I really needed something inexpensive. It works great, runs fast. Mostly use it for going on the internet and doing school work. I have occasionally used it for watching YouTube and Hulu and it works great for that too! Highly recommend. I have had it for about 7 months and still works great!
