If you’re looking for a laptop just for Internet surfing or working with text or tables, you really should consider buying a Chromebook. These laptops may not be the most powerful or productive but they weren’t designed for that. Most Chromebooks boast portability and long battery time. Plus, ChromeOS not only gives you the support of the best Internet browser but provides you with different apps from Google Play.
Now, many companies understand that not everybody needs much power or productivity in their laptops. That’s why they are focused on making and perfecting Chromebooks. One of these companies is Acer. It has a great line-up of Chromebooks and we chose three to demonstrate why you need to have one in your life.
Acer Chromebook 14.
The best thing about this laptop is design. 100% percent aluminium, used for making it, exudes elegance. It is also incredibly light – a perfect device for work. Speaking of work, Acer Chromebook 14 provides you with everything you need – a smooth trackpad for navigating through web pages and a very responsive keyboard for working in Google Docs. Plus, the battery works for almost 10-11 hours. There is a slight issue with HD video playback but it’s not a big deal. In short, for $474 you get a loyal companion for basic tasks.
Acer Chromebook 15.
This is a bigger and heavier laptop. It differs from most Chromebooks because it has a 15.6-inch FullHD display. Plus, it’s better than any other Chromebook in terms of performance as it’s fitted with the Intel Core i5 processor. Add to that a long-lasting battery and you get a really great laptop. It will be especially loved by students, teachers or anyone who works at the desk most of the time. One important problem is weight – most other Chromebooks are much more portable than this one. So, let’s hope that Acer will deal with this issue later.
Acer Chromebook R11.
This, on the other hand, is a smaller laptop – it has an 11.6-inch display. What’s more, it’s touchscreen and the whole laptop is convertible. It has a 360-degree hinge, so you can turn the screen at any angle you want and continue watching videos or surfing the Internet. Also, R11 trumps most Chromebooks in battery time – it’s enough for one day of using. So, you need a small laptop and you’re interested mostly in web experience? Then, Acer Chromebook R11 is definitely for you.
