Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2457)

PC Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The third variation on the Chromebook theme, the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2457) drops the price but loses a couple choice features to do so. But even with the changes it's still a bargain.
  • Pros: One of the least expensive Chromebooks. Larger RAM means zippy performance. Full selection of ports, including HDMI and Ethernet. Keyboard blends traditional and Chrome layouts.
  • Cons: Smaller battery means shorter battery life. Smaller local storage. Chrome OS offers limited offline use. No 3G option.

Acer C7 Chromebook Review

15 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Acer has succeeded in boiling out all the high-end features that make a notebook cost more than $400 and took Google's Chrome OS to just about as standard and basically acceptable place as they possibly could, tagging it with a very suitable $199 pricetag.

  • Pros: Good keyboard and touchpad, Attractive display, Snappy performance, Amazing value
  • Cons: Quiet, lackluster speakers, Poor battery life

  • Pros: Inexpensive, Solid performance, Quick resume time, Good keyboard
  • Cons: Terrible build quality, Short battery life, Poor trackpad, Slow boot time

It might well be a budget purchase, but the screen has a poor viewing angle, battery life isn't great and the keyboard is hit and miss for typing - all of key...

  • Cons: Poor screen viewing angle, limited battery life, no 3G, keyboard isn't an enjoyable typing experience, built-in hard drive slows things down, chunkier and weightier than similar competitor, app limitations
