Chrome OS is in the midst of a sort of existential crisis. Google's web-based OS was originally used on full-fledged, full-powered and full-priced laptops, but its niche now seems to be cheaper, smaller computers. But even in that world, there's plenty...

Inexpensive ; Solid performance ; Quick resume time ; Good keyboard

Terrible build quality ; Short battery life ; Poor trackpad ; Slow boot time

Chrome OS promises to deliver cheaper, simpler laptops — Acer takes the idea to its extreme

Acer C7 Haswell Chromebook hands-on review


A quick play with Acer's Haswell Chromebook

The relatively low resolution doesn't appear to present a problem for web browsing, however, as the Acer C7 does that nicely.

Good buy!

Great for the price


This Acer Chromebook is a great product for the price. I had gotten a tablet after my laptop died, but I missed having a keyboard. I decided to give this Chromebook a try and I'm glad I did. It is a great device for emailing and doing anything...

Great chromebook for everyday internet usage.


I knew exactly what I was getting when I went to buy this chromebook. I had done my research and after reading all the reviews I decided to go with the acer c720. I bought this chromebook on sale for $200 and I have no complaints what so ever. It boots...

Price, ease of use, and portability
