Summary: My husband needed his own computer. He was using my HP laptop for basic things and would get confused with Windows 8 (I mean, who wouldn't???), and never used any of the other programs. His computer usage consists of watching Youtube videos, writing an occasional email in Gmail and doing a few searches here and there on Chrome. He hates tablets and really wanted a keyboard, but didn't need a huge screen like on my laptop. We checked out the Acer Chromebook at Wal Mart.
Worth buying for the price but there are some downsides

Summary: Great for the price but there are some catches. I bought this laptop so I could bring it to school and leave my windows machine at home. I have been pleasantly surprised. Despite only having 2 gigs of ram and a celeron processor this thing really zips around between tasks. It boots up in like 5 seconds. The screen looks good enough.
