Customer reviews & ratings
Turn on, easy user interface. Easily connects to Wireless. Log-in to your Google account. It begins synchronizing my brand new laptop with my Android phone. In a very short. Of time my apps have downloaded automatically to my laptop. Only a few apps did not transfer but I just go to the Play Store find them and download them again. This laptop is amazingly fast with my 100 megabytes per second Broadband speed. It has enough built-in memory last me about three or four years before I would need an SD card add-on. When I turn it on it is ready to go in about 10 seconds. The battery last about 11 and a half hours before me it is rated at 12 hours. I love the backlit keyboard and numeric keypad. I have read complaints about quality of display. It is not Q LED but nevertheless I have Netflix account and it was beautiful on the screen. I use the camera and the webcam and they are great. I do not understand the low remarks in regards to camera or video or webcam. Again it is not Q LED so don't buy one if that is what you are expecting. It is military grade I feel like I could drop it more than once and nothing would happen to it but at the same time it is ultra light. USB 3.0 is fast. Slot for SD if , if you use up the 128Gb's. The 15.6 inch is so nice. Much better than my 11 inch Chromebook. I listen with my Bluetooth Noise Cancellation headphone and it pairs easily. The built in Stereo speakers are great, but Bluetooth headphones have spoiled me. Five Stars. Very, highly recommend.
I love this laptop. I bought it for my 7 year old (since Virtual learning is what it is now), I wanted something with a large enough screen, so this size is great. He is enjoying working on it, and loves the touch screen option too. Only thing we need to get used to is the CAP lock (Alt magnifying glass), then (Shift) to go back to lower case. Something we are trying to remember, but outside of that, we love it!!!
I this time of need (online schooling due to COVID-19) I purchased this product. I know a good bit about computers but needed multiple devices for 3 children being in different grades. By far this is the go to. Fast processor, seamless integration with their schooling, and family fun. I purchased one and then went to get another because they were so good and now they are sold out. Still a great purchase and great product.
Love it! First chromebook. Touch screen is accurate and number pad comes in handy. Love the aluminum body (doesn't feel cheap) Only downfall is the speakers are on the bottom, so if it's on your lap the sound is muffled. When on a table though, the sound reverberates and is very loud.
Great performance, but no backlit keyboard !
This is a great Chromebook performance wise. I only gave it 4 stars because the features described are misleading. There is no back lighting on the keyboard. Walmart customer service is sending me another Chromebook and we will see if it has a backlit keyboard. I really do miss the backlit keyboard as my last ACER Chromebook and my office laptop have that feature.
Actually please consider this 4 1/2 stars
For perspective, I'm coming from a Toshiba Chromebook 2. The all aluminum case makes it feel very solid, and stays cool to the touch. Large screen is a step up to the 13 inches I'm used to and the brightness levels are fine for me (all indoor use). Track pad feels great, very responsive and has a nice silver trim around it. Keys feel fine, very much like my old Toshiba. They are not back lit, but I dont care. Battery has been lasting all day and the adapter plugs in on either side, which is very nice. Touchscreen is responsive and works well. Internet pages load quickly as well as Youtube/Netflix. My only complaint is the audio; it has downward facing speakers which can make it sound muffled when sitting on your lap. If its on a hard surface, its not bad. Top level loudness was probably a 7 compared to my Toshiba. Could be bc of the down speakers. But thats plenty fine for a person in an average household or office. Headphones will fix that and there are also Chrome extensions that will boost your volume even further if you want (careful you dont go too far, you can damage them). Overall, for $330, I'm happy with it.
Perfect for my son.
Purchased this for my 8year old son who has to be homeschooled now and it's perfect. Love the screen, the keyboard and all the features. The one thing I didn't like is that when I downloaded Roblox it glitched a bit. During any other app. I did not have an issue.
Over all its great for school work and light gamin
Pros: long battery, easy to use, is well made and has a nice feel to it, touch screen control is very responsive, keyboard numerical pad helps crunching in numbers faster. Bluetooth connectivity is great no problems controlling screen with mouse or android controller, can be unlocked when u connect ur phone on it through bluetooth. Cons: even though the screen is HD it isn't to clean but it isn't bad. Not compatable to play some Mobile games exp(minecraft). Its for light gaming and in beta Linux can have the steam app and play games on a VM.
Overall a good buy
Very easy to use and does everything I want, except it doesn't directly connect to my printer. Still have to figure out how to do that. Online it says it can be done, but it takes some extra steps. I wish it would automatically connect. Otherwise it's been great and does everything I want. We have streamed movies, books, and the kids use it to do school on. Other than not being able to print (yet) it's satisfactory.
Made the mistake of thinking this was the 715 that other retailers had for $550+. Thought I got a great deal for $299 around black Friday. Came to find this is a Walmart only version of the 715. Lacks the back lit keyboard that I thought came with it based on research of the model. This was a significant feature that I wanted only to be disappointed when I opened it. My mistake for not looking closer at it before I bought it. Still am not happy with the lack of transparency from Walmart. It was described as the same model I saw on Best Buy and several other places for the higher price. Overall not a bad laptop but I had a 7 year old Chromebook when I bought this one that still ran great at about 80% of it's original battery life. I chose this model over several other options based on the back lit keyboard. Clean up your details Walmart.
A Durable Fast 15.6" Acer Chromebook
I love this Acer Chromebook 715. I wanted a bigger screen than my 14" and I wanted the faster processor. It doesn't have the backlit keys or finger sensor but since I'm home 24/7 I really don't need these things and I got it for $369 which I felt was a very good deal. It's anodized aluminum and Military Grade which keeps it durable in all kinds of weather. It's got 1080P full HD Touchscreen and the brightness is fine for me and the speakers are very decent. It comes with a fan. The power is 2.2GHz with Turbo Boost to 3.4GHz. It's very fast. And it will continually get automatic updates until 6/2025.
Simple and straightforward. A little heavy because it is big and keys are spread out, but all things i can get used to. Came next day and great price!
Great easy to use laptop
I was replacing an 8 yr old Acer Chromebook with this one. I love this one, much larger screen, touchscreen. I logged onto my Google account and everything was there ready to use .
Completely satisfied with the Acer chrome book (not my first) and every aspect of the purchase from Walmart. Ordered online and picked up in store . Walmart employees were very helpful on pick up.
I only have this laptop for a week not and everything work great. The battery life is really good, the touch screen works great and my 5 year old already figured already figured out how to use it.
Great for the price
Awesome little machine. Fast, light, nice big screen. The one con I read was screen brightness which is nonsense. Compares well with any machine I have owned. Might get another!
Fast chromebook, good battery life!
Bought for my son to use for high school and online college classes. He really likes this Chromebook and said it is way faster than his last one! Does not have backlit keyboard, but knew that when purchased it from others reviews.
Best PURCHASE EVER
Oh my gosh, this is probably my second best purchase from Walmart!!! Awesome laptop for the price I paid, at $170.00 dollars I was a little reluctant to purchase, then I read the reviews and I was convinced BUY NOW!!! This was advertised on eBay and Amazon for a hundred an fifty more! The device came packaged very nicely and prior to the estimated delivery date, I was updated to include when the delivery person was at my door smiling with my device! This Chromebook is extremely fast I love the on time updates, the screen is clean and crisp (typical Acer build) tough, well designed and sturdy! I should have purchased multiples at the current price it's a awesome purchase. Nice that everything I performed on my phone I could continue on my laptop without losing my information, to include conducting phone calls; you have to Android apps! Go ahead make the purchase....
Perfect for what I needed.
Great for what I was looking for. I am able to work from home and my kids can do their school work, zoom calls, etc.
Started off ok, but the mother board needed replacing by month two. Problems started when the touch screen feature failed, then it would not turn on. Sent it to the manufacturer for repairs which took about 3 weeks. MAKE SURE YOU PURCHASE THE EXTRA WARRANTY
