Summary: It gets the job done! If you're on a budget and you have Wi-Fi at home or you have access to it. I'd say get it. The glossy glare on this one you'd have to adjust the screen for like watching movies or videos. I use this for the web and videos, movies, music. It's good. No complaints.
Summary: mini laptop with this operating system does not work in Venezuela and I think in a few places in the world where there is no free wifi in the country, everything is stored in the cloud and if you are not connected will not be able to open almost anything from your computer, do not I recommend it to...
Summary: I have this refurbished Chromebook and also own the previous-generation Acer Chromebook for at least a year.
Pros: Faster than the previous generation. Interior is flawless--the shiny plastic has been restored. No stuck pixels!! Solid keyboard (see Cons). Small and sturdy (see Cons).

Pros: It's an impressively sleek little device. Seems solid. Newegg was cooperative with replacement. (Item arrived DOA.)
Cons: Item arrived DOA with warranty seal broken. Would not boot. Would not run recovery. Item was shipped in retail box with no padding whatsoever. Nothing at all to protect the item from impact in transit.
Summary: I received my Acer C710 Chromebook. Upon starting the computer it was discovered that it had a problem. The OS would only allow my to access the computer as a guest user. The system would not allow me to enter the initial setup user login screen.
Pros: Very clean and lightweight internet computer. Fast free shipping. Great value with rebate.
Cons: Unusable out of the box. Very tinny speakers,
Summary: only good as a back up for computing, more annoying than any PC is. Just 1 example that is annoying: getting a web page onto Bookmarks! What a hassle. Some others I don't feel like explaining, those who sell or use this will know.
Summary: It was a great price. Did almost everything it said it did.... BUT it is not compatiable to my wireless printer and will not download driver. So the only set back is it is only compatible with a limited amount of printers.
