This laptop (Chromebook) is a nice thing. I've had a tablet before from another brand which the tablet is like the Edsel. They don't make that tablet anymore. I've enjoyed the laptop and you are able to hook up a mouse to it as well as any other things that have a USB connector. It's not too heavy in weight and the only complaint is the small fonts make it hard to read unless you download a program that increases the font size. Battery life is good you can get 8 or more hours (all depends on how long you have it on). It doesn't take long to charge after you run out of battery. I would recommend this product mainly based on the price which was around $200.00.
This was perfect for my son. He can play games, watch movies and most importantly do his school work on it.
This is my first time purchasing the Chromebook and for a beginner, I have to say that it is awesome and great to have especially for a college student like myself. The uniqueness was the caps lock. Also its fast, sleek, and the battery life is fantastic. I love the size also and I have no problem recommending this to a friend
I love my new Acer! I had an Acer Aspire for several years & it was great. I was just looking for an updated version of a basic Acer for reading e-mails, etc & this is the perfect fit!
I have never owned a lap top before so I had to figure out how to use it myself. It was not that hard and it is compact and light weight. I drive a bus and it gives me something to do while I am sitting and waiting. The price was very good and the case I purchased with it fits the lap top perfectly. This is the second Acer computer I owned and the first one lasted a long while, hopefully this one does too.
Those who are looking at a similar refurbished unit for $178, make the switch now like me. Spend the extra $22 and not only go NEW, but go from 3.5 hour battery to an 8.5 hour battery. End of story.
This is my second Chromebook and I have been waiting for a bargain price for months for this size (11.6 inch). I am very pleased and satisfied with the Acer C720.
Now a chromebook isn't the same as a notebook or laptop but there is some learning to do out of the box. I am usually tech savvy but this one needed some time to learn. There is no caps lock but that's an easy fix just use shift and you're home free. The key pad is super easy to type on and feels kind of like my brothers Macbook pros keypad. I love being able to download virtually any app onto it and plan on using it for school, writing apps are in abundance in the chrome store and there is even a Microsoft word app as well. It's easy because it automatically saves so don't freak out when you don't find a save icon. It has a fast processor don't be afraid when you see only 1.4 ghz granted it isn't running the normal software a notebook uses it's faster than some larger processing speed notebooks. It boots up all ready in 7 seconds flat, some of the new chromebooks are faster but do we really need to care about start up speed in this day and age? I love it, thank you Acer and btw save some money and get the Acer not the Samsung it's 30 dollars cheaper and the same thing essentially but a better processor and I love the Solid State Drive that's a good idea for a chromebook.
Product is good for emails, googling and things like paying bills online. Its does have the ability to do documents and charts. Seems quick online and battery life has been very good. You do need to review how to use chrome OS which is built into the book, different then using std PC.
Chromebook provides extremely quick web access to internet sites. Easy to use and more portable than the typical laptop.
I BROUGHT IT FOR MY 14 YR. OLD SON. HE LET ME GET ON IT FOR A FEW, BUT THE TIME I'VE USED IT WAS NICE, BUT MY SON LOVES IT. HE STAYS ON IT FOR HOURS AT A TIME.
the laptop is fine but downloads are limited to pdfs only. not bad nor good. i like it.
It doesn't get much better than this deal. Acer matched a well designed netbook with Chrome OS and an Intel Haswell processor to make an incredible device - simple, fast, functional, and super light-weight. Good on Acer .. good on Google. You cannot beat the deal for price and performance.
Keyboard Failed within 1 month, would of returned but only a 15 day return period.
I bought this to replace my original chromebook sent to me from google as a beta tester. New unit was running out of the box in five minutes. Battery life is double my previous one with no lag in performance. Love it.
The laptop was very easy to setup. Could not believe the value for a price of $199. Great computer for a family.
This is my second chromebook. I own the HP 14" chromebook and now this one. I love these devices. I find myself reaching for these a lot more than my regular laptop. They are fast, start up right away and the price is right. This will not replace a regular laptop, but for emails, web browsing, and on line games etc. this little machine kicks butt. Plus battery life is super, this would be great for travel as well due to battery life and portability..this thing is light!! As long as you know what this machine can and can not do, I think you will be happy with it. I know I am!
This laptop is very easy to use and light enough to carry in my purse.
For the money you can't go wrong, usually I write a review just after I purchase a product, it is April 27, 2014 and I have owned this chromebook since August of 2013. The laptop has performed smoothly with no issues to date, I am able to do all my banking, shopping, bill paying, etc. I have no issues accessing the web seeing it has wifi, so any where I go that has free wifi it connects in seconds. for the money it is well worth it, no frills just an inexpensive option.
I'll have to admit I was a bit skeptical when ordering this little Chromebook. I wasn't sure it would meet my expectations for speed, ease of use, etc. I am glad to report I was pleasantly surprised. It not only met my expectations, it exceeded them. It's very fast, connects flawlessly to wifi and does everything I would want a laptop to do as far as surfing the internet. I used it in motel rooms while traveling and it's compact, slim, light with a good keyboard.
As you can see, I'm very impressed.
