Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055)

PC Magazine
25 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Though it still has a couple of faults, the new version of the Acer C7 Chromebook is faster, longer lasting, and better all around. All this and its very low price tag makes it the best inexpensive Chromebook on the market.
  • Pros: More RAM for better, zippier performance. Swappable 6-cell battery lasts longer on the road. Very affordable. Big 320GB hard drive for a Chromebook. Full selection of ports, including Ethernet and VGA. Keyboard blends traditional and Chrome layouts.
  • Cons: Unchanged design is still clunky. Chrome OS is limited. No 3G option.

22 February 2013
  • Conclusion: If the point of Chrome OS is for you to live in the browser, then the clear choice for testing battery life is our updated Web Browsing battery life test. Here we find that the advertised figure of 4 hours is almost spot on.

PC Magazine
15 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2847) isn't the slickest laptop out there, but it runs Chrome OS, has a roomy hard drive and a full selection of ports, and sells for a song. We'll overlook a lot for its $200 price tag.
  • Pros: Dirt cheap at $199. Relatively enormous 320GB hard drive. Full selection of ports, including Ethernet and VGA. Swappable battery. Keyboard blends traditional and Chrome layouts.
  • Cons: Clunky design. Short battery life. Chrome OS is limited. No 3G option

Acer C7 Chromebook Review

13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: A $200 laptop is a difficult thing to assess. On one hand, the Acer C7 Chromebook has that shockingly low price tag, on the other, there is weak build quality and a netbook-grade processor. The trade-offs the buyer must be willing to make are not trivial.

21 November 2012
  • Conclusion: That improvement, coupled with falling prices, means that Chromebooks are becoming more viable every day—and the $199 Acer is viable with a capital "V." Does the platform still have limitations? Absolutely. Is it a knockout blow to tablets? Absolutely not.
  • Pros: Shockingly low price, Plenty of ports, 100GB of free Google Drive cloud storage for two years, Competent screen and keyboard
  • Cons: Netbooky design, Disappointing battery life, USB 2.0, not 3.0

Acer C7 Chromebook Review

4 March 2013
  • Summary: Since the Chromebook was delivered I have not picked up my laptop or netbook. Light and portable, easy to use and stable, the Acer C7 has become a firm favourite and I shall be sad to see it go. That is not to say it isn’t without its issues and it certainly isn’t perfect.

  • Summary: Acer's C710 is not a laptop that will suit everyone, but if you are already a heavy user of Google's array of services, and if you just want a simple device on which to use those services, you should definitely give this Chromebook a go.
  • Pros: Good overall performance, Vibrant screen, Good keyboard and touchpad
  • Cons: Short battery life, Can get noticeably warm, Sticky Backspace key
