Chromebook is finnicky

SevenStorms, Amazon
15 September 2015
  • Summary: This Chromebook is finnicky. I have had problems with it since I first received it. It does come with a year free access to Google Drive to store any data. However, after a year, you have to start paying to save your data. I just email myself everything I want to save instead. Negatives: 1.

Wouldn't Charge, Claims No Battery Installed

Joel, Amazon
5 April 2015
  • Summary: After going back and forth with myself over which Chromebook I wanted to buy, I finally decided on this one and it arrived today. It also went right back in the box to be returned. I played with it for a little while before realizing I didn't see a battery status indicator in the bottom right corner...

Even at $100, it's not worth it...

MDy2K, Amazon
2 March 2015
  • Summary: It does nothing well. I bought a refurbished model, so it might be a bad refurb. When on battery power the machine always reboots. The point behind this machine is for browsing the internet, under the google ecosystem, so you know it's going to be limited.

Trackpad issues

Paul P., Newegg
20 January 2015
  • Summary: Everything should have a backlit keyboard, this doesn't.
  • Pros: Long battery life, stays cool
  • Cons: When connected to some power outlets the trackpad stops functioning properly --due maybe to electro-magnetic interference--reducing the chromebook to a paperweight. The only solutions I've found is to only use it when charged (if I know I'm going somewhere that causes this issue), or to use a usb...

Kryptonite for creativity and freedom

Sigurd Gogol "Sigurd Gogol", Amazon
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Extremely limited system, with appealing but arbitrarily shackled specs. If you're fond of walled gardens, go for it. It's probably most fit for obedient children, Americans … or North Koreans.

Amazing with one major problem

Beebe, Amazon
2 October 2014
  • Summary: This chromebook is amazing except for one problem. It randomly shuts off during use. I will be watching a video or be in the middle of writing an email, and the computer turns off for no reason. Aside from that major problem, the computer is very fast and more than I expected.

Okay but delivered with screen defect

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Delivered with flaw in screen. Looks as if will have to wait 3 to 4 weeks for replacement if I return. Screen is not what one expects - low resolution. Probably not worth 379. For 200 okay.

Beware: This is sold by THIRD PARTY, not from ACER

A Tough Critic, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this because I thought it was an Acer refurbished product. Most OEM refurbished products come with original packaging, but this did not - so I was a bit wary that the charger and laptop came naked in just a box.

Good in Theory, Not in Practice.

JM Black, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: This is one of the only items I've bought online over the years that I felt the need to return. Chromebook sounds good in theory, but it takes a way a lot of customability and is just...irritating to deal with. It's like buying an overpriced app rather than a laptop.

Great first Chromebook...until it quit functioning the day the warranty ended.

Aiwen, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I really enjoyed using this device. The screen could have been better, but I knew that when I made the purchase. Performance is excellent, it does everything you need on the web. I thoughtthis was a great deal instead of buying another Apple product. But at least Apple products last.
