Hardware review. Lots of power in a small, inexpensive box!
9 April 2015
Summary: I spent about an hour taking a look at Chrome-OS, it seems fine, but i want a lot more than a web browser.. This i3 chip is overkill for most peoples web browsing tasks, and would likely be satisfactory for years in that area of use. I followed easy to find steps to "de-chrome a chomebook".
Fast chromebook with poor display, keyboard and build.

Summary: The Core i3 processor in this Acer chromebook makes it a great user experience. The notebook is the right size. The screen leaves something to be desired, specially for off-angle viewing. And the build quality is indicative of the price point. The keyboard is pretty abysmal.
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: Overall this is a good laptop/net book for the price. Down side is the Chrome O/S doesn't allow you to as much stuff as you'd like such as use Mircosoft Word or download any Office software or convert file types.
Summary: I purchased the chromebook for my husband. He is enjoying it, but it should have come with an instruction booklet and a list of available websites to purchase additional cords, wireless mouse, or other items that can be used with the chromebook.
Summary: Mine came mostly undamaged. The 'S' key requires a harder press. The keyboard feels cheap, and the screen frequently gets black streaks on it from the keyboard when it's closed for longer than a minute. The touchpad is alright, but I mostly had problems with the software.
Summary: Chromebook's have no direct printing capability and can be an issue. It does work like a new notebook even though refurbished but mine came with the wrong power supply and waiting for the replacement to arrive. Plays full screen video smoothly and very sharp picture.
