Excerpt: First, I notice that all of the Pro & Con check boxes are for a printer, not a laptop. Re the item I bought, I did not realize that the Chromebook is not a PC. This is a problem that means I will have to exchange it. Now, for instance, I've discovered that it doesn't recognize my flashdrive.
Summary: I think I set my expectations too high. I was looking for a 1-to-1 device that would compete well against $500.00 devices. Pros: 1. Cost $250.00 is getting close to consumable pricing. 2. Works great with googles suit of online apps. 3. Looks Nice 4. Lots of free Apps 5. Boots fast. Cons: 1. Buggy?
Summary: Very disappointed, runs extremely slow even from new. I have other computers in the house than run much quicker, so it's not the broadband speed which I've checked and is the usual speed. Oh well, buy cheap buy twice.
Too many crashes, gets incredibly slow with multiple tabs

Summary: After 7 months of use I have the following experience: 1. Resets: Chrome resets, especially late at night/early in the morning. Sometimes 3 times in a row after 5-10 minutes. No prior warning, extremely annoying. 2. Slow: With multiple tabs, several tabs go idle (page x has become unresponsive).
Summary: Although the spec on this laptop is much superior than that on my old one it is slower, whether this is the fault of the latest version of windows or the amount of unwanted software that Acer have pre-installed I couldn't say.

Summary: Sent this back yesterday - very disappointed!! The mouse pad didn't seem to work very well at all and needed a great deal of taps, the computer was extremely slow and constantly loss internet connection - disappointing!
Summary: I am so very unhappy with this machine. Who thought it a good idea not to have left and right click buttons on a laptop? They should not be allowed anywhere near designing a laptop ever again. I have read the other reviews, the people who manage to right click using two fingers.
