Summary: Refurb unit, I bought 1-year extended warranty & needed warranty service after 1 month (LED screen died). The 3rd party warrantor (Service.net) told me NO, must get mfg service since it's less than 3 months old. After hassling with them and Acer Service, I finally chatted with Acer and gave them my Newegg order #. They said I had a 1 year warranty!
Pros: Nice cheap refurb chromebook, works very well, 7 second startup, good for surfing the web & watching YouTube videos
Summary: I really like this laptop light running great I ran in to a few filed I couldn't download and I could not fan app in the Google store that would convert the files, but that's my only problem I've found.
Summary: Battery: about 6 hours on full charge on web browsing. 4 hours if watching movies. haven't had full 8 hours as advertized, but that's within expectation. absolutely no problem with charging cable. locks in tight and clips in secure. Pros: *good price for functionality. quad-core i-3 makes this thing fly! *ultra quick startup. button push to browing about 13seconds using Ubuntu *works well with ubuntu and most of the applications available for the OS.
Excerpt: Works great with no hassles. The Chrome OS is drop-dead easy to set up and use for most of the things that I do with a laptop. It is refreshing to not have to worry about malware and constant OS updates. The Acer has a great keyboard, screen, and performance. It is light and compact and seems well built. I mainly use it for word processing, e-mail, web surfing, and streaming video and it does those things quite well. Great for travel.
Summary: I love this Chromebook. It is lightweight and thin. It starts up right away, the speed is awesome, it stays on for a long time, the keyboard is easy to use. The biggest adjustment for me was not having a "tight click' , but I quickly adapted to the 'ctrl c' for copy and 'cntrl v" for paste instead of adding a plug in mouse. A second adjustment was printing. You have to go to the computer plugged into your printer and add the printer to the google cloud.
