Summary: Nice little chromebook that has capable internals and unreliable build quality. I'll break it down simply: Pros: - Fast Proc/Memory combo for the price. Handles ChromeOS and basic Linux distros with ease - Nice keyboard - ChromeOS is fairly capable of doing most everyday functions - Good...
Summary: Bought a used one. Not bad, had small dents on the side, but still works like new. Except I thought it would've came in with the original charger and I got a replacement charger instead. I HATE replacement chargers. I bought mine online for my acer laptop and it didn't work.

Summary: I bought this Chromebook for my kids to use since it's basically immune to viruses, spyware, malware and the like. It's got good battery life and and decent keyboard. The screen isn't very good, nor is the trackpad, but it was a good price.
Summary: Not all its cracked up to be. Screen shuts off repeatedly after extended use currently being sent in for warranty, it is less than a month old and already exhibiting failures. Very peppy and easy to use OS. Good value for price overall. I would like to add that Acer customer service is superb.
Summary: The product itself is fantastic. As a chromebook it is one of the more pricey ones but it's certainly lives up to its price. Everything is quick for me as a student with wifi on campus and at home. The only reason I didn't review this 5 stars was quality control.
Cool gagdet, but I can't find an everyday use for it.

Summary: This was sold as refurbished, but seemed brand new. I only gave this 3 stars because I couldn't figure out anything useful to with it. I tried installing Ubuntu, and it worked well, but, this Chromebook is (at least to me) just a toy.
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.
