Excerpt: could not find everything I wanted.Had a hard time surfing the web. i coulfd not find out how to bookmark web pages? I was getting very frustratted trying to use this type of operaing system. i'm to use to windows 7 which I use on other computers. I'm not saying this system is no good, for those who know how to use it , it is proberly a very good system for them.
Nice size, works FAST, but no Google Play Store & therefore no HP ePrint & no skype!

Summary: Nice size. Works very fast. Well built and light to carry. I was mistakenly under the impression that I could install apps from Google Play. Though the Chromebook works well, if not connected to Wi-Fi it is useless. Wish I had bought a dual OS product with Windows AND Android. Cannot Skype, cannot use HP ePrint.
Summary: bought this because asus chromebox was backordered. my mistake. i wanted the wired lan and extra usb ports on the chromebox. why can't acer just build or recommend a mouse that works. my tablet, win laptop and desktop easily connect to my lan. this chromebook seems like a step backwards.
Pros: fast, inexpensive, great battery life
Cons: won't autoconnect to wifi unless I broadcast ssid. won't connect to bluetooth mouse. acer tech support does not have any info on mice that will work.
The refurbished models are not eligable for the Google Goodies

Summary: I was really looking forward to getting this laptop. I've been waiting for a touchscreen chromebook and here it is! I didnt want to spend full price so i waited for the laptop to drop in price, then I see Acer has refurbished units for sale and at the right price so I pull the trigger. I get the laptop and I'm very happy with the look and feel compared to my old Toshiba Satellite.
Was my favorite Chromebook (but no more) & I own several

Summary: The touchscreen makes all the difference. I read all these "pro" reviews that talk about Chrome not being an ideal OS for a touchscreen. Well, I have news for them, I don't spend a lot of time staring at the OS screen, I'm on the internet using & looking at all the same screens I use from my OS 8 laptop & my tablets. I have a non-touchscreen HP Chromebook 11 which is also nice but not having a touchscreen on it is frustrating 'cause it is hard to zoom in & out as needed.
