Summary: I have followed the chromebook style laptops since conception, and read hundreds of reviews, updates, upgrades, changes, etc. The highest rated large screen Chromebook is the one I use, Toshiba 13.3 c35. The highest rated small 11.6 is the Acer 11.6, which I just purchased and arrived today. It was supposed to be a refurbished C720, very highly rated, but this one is an absolute junker. Boy was I disappointed .
Summary: The Chromebook was fantastic - until I tried using Google Hangouts. The camera was broken. The system didn't recognize a camera at all. I verified that the computer was defective with the help of Google support. I just paid the extra money for a new-in-box one. I won't be trying refurbished again.
