Review: Acer's C710-2457 Chromebook is a basic, bargain browsing machine

 

The C710-2457 is inexpensive and could knock around a family room or a kid's backpack with little budgetary trauma, but it's otherwise unremarkable and does little to promote the Chrome-centric lifestyle.

Very inexpensive ; Ethernet and wireless connectivity

Cheap plasticky feel ; Display has limited viewing angles

The Acer C710-2457 is a bargain among Chromebooks, but there's little else about it that makes it worth buying—or that will convince a smartphone or tablet user to convert.

Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2457)

 

The third variation on the Chromebook theme, the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2457) drops the price but loses a couple choice features to do so.

One of the least expensive Chromebooks. Larger RAM means zippy performance. Full selection of ports, including HDMI and Ethernet. Keyboard blends traditional and Chrome layouts.

Smaller battery means shorter battery life. Smaller local storage. Chrome OS offers limited offline use. No 3G option.

While the new Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2457) gets dinged for the loss of the larger hard drive and the shorter life of the smaller battery, it does have one of the lowest prices of any of the available Chromebooks. For a product that's all about...

Acer C710-2457 Chromebook review

 

It's become abundantly clear at this point that Chrome OS isn't going anywhere. Google's foray into browser-driven computing is more than an experiment: Chromebooks are still hanging on in the fringes of the laptop market, and even gaining in number....

The Acer C710-2457 is the least expensive Chromebook on the Google Play store, and comes with a set of base features competitive with Samsung’s $250 Chromebook.

Cheap-feeling Netbook-like construction, small touch pad, limited battery life, and unimpressive display and speakers; plus, Chrome OS is inherently limiting for offline use so this isn't as versatile as a traditional PC. Meager 16GB of onboard SSD...

If you want one of the least expensive Web-browsing devices that feels like a laptop but is really a Chromebook, the Acer C7 is fine. But its limitations match its price.

Acer C710-2457 Chromebook Review

 

The Acer C710-2457 Chromebook delivers smooth performance and a crisp display at an aggressive price, but it has limited storage and a short battery life.

Very affordable; Smooth performance; Good display for the price

Below-average battery life; Plain design; Bottom gets hot; Slow SSD

Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055)

 

The Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055) is the best inexpensive Chromebook currently on the market.

More RAM for better, zippier performance. Swappable 6-cell battery lasts longer on the road. Very affordable. Big 320GB hard drive for a Chromebook. Full selection of ports, including Ethernet and VGA. Keyboard blends traditional and Chrome layouts.

Unchanged design is still clunky. Chrome OS is limited. No 3G option.

Though it doesn't have the same claim on affordability that the previous $200 C7 Chromebook had, the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055) is still less expensive than almost any Windows laptop, and now offers better performance and battery life. With twice...

Acer C710-2055 Chromebook Review

 

For shoppers looking to get online for a reasonable price, the $279 Acer C710 Chromebook is a solid choice. You get much longer battery life than the previous C7 along with a faster processor and more onboard storage than the $249 Samsung Chromebook...

Smooth performance, Good display for the price, Above-average battery life, Very affordable

Plain design, Relatively heavy for 11-inch laptop

Acer C710-2055 Chromebook

 

Sometimes a cheap price isn't enough. The original $199 Acer C7 Chromebook delivered faster performance and more storage than its $249 Samsung rival, but it fell short in terms of endurance. This time around, Acer has increased the RAM from 2 GB to 4GB...

Acer C7 Chromebook Review

 

If today we were reviewing the Acer Aspire One A0756-2641 notebook, from which the Acer C7 Chromebook is derived, then it would be really brief. Compromised, and too expensive. Priced at around $329, the spec sheet is spared utter embarrassment by...

Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2847)

 

The Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2847) isn't the slickest laptop out there, but it runs Chrome OS, has a roomy hard drive and a full selection of ports, and sells for a song.

Dirt cheap at $199. Relatively enormous 320GB hard drive. Full selection of ports, including Ethernet and VGA. Swappable battery. Keyboard blends traditional and Chrome layouts.

Clunky design. Short battery life. Chrome OS is limited. No 3G option

Acer C7 Chromebook Review

 

The Acer C7 Chromebook has an extremely tempting price, but it's not the best Google-powered laptop out there. This machine does have some advantages over the latest Samsung Chromebook, including a roomier hard drive (320GB versus just 16GB), more and...

Low price, Good port selection, 320GB hard drive plus 100GB of cloud storage

Very short battery life, Bland and relatively thick design
