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.

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. But even with the changes it's still a bargain.

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

The laptop PC, as a product category, may be shrinking, but the ultra-budget category has actually seen sales grow, dominated by one name in particular: Chromebook. The ultra-low pricing and Web-centric Chrome operating system have undeniable appeal...

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.

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

If you're looking for a cheap alternative to today's mainstream laptops and a notebook exclusively for surfing the Web, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more budget-friendly option than the $229 Acer C710-2457. Its 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Celeron 847...

Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055)

 

Though it still has a couple of faults, the new version of the Acer C7 Chromebook is faster, longer lasting, and better all around. All this and its very low price tag makes it the best inexpensive Chromebook 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

The Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055) updates last year's Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2847) with better performance and longer battery life. Google's Chromebooks have long promised affordability and simplicity, and Acer's C7 Chromebooks have delivered in...

Acer's Chromebook puts Google's Chrome OS in a sub-$300 notebook with good battery life.

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

Plain design; Relatively heavy for 11-inch laptop

Click to EnlargeFor 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...

Chromebooks have been plagued, until recently, with one major flaw: price. Costing as much as a small Windows notebook but lacking that license, it was hard for users to take the leap of faith that they could live entirely in the browser. Drastically...

The netbook isn't dead, it just got Chrome'd. With the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2847), Google has finally cut down the price of the Chromebook to an undeniably affordable $200, using a netbook-esque design, but infusing it with the web-centric Chrome...

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

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. We'll overlook a lot for its $200 price tag.

Besides Samsung, Acer is the only other company to release a Chromebook – though there's speculation of Google releasing its own Chromebook. Acer didn't bring much attention to itself with its first Chromebook, which simply wasn't as good as Samsung's,...

Good keyboard and touchpad ; Attractive display ; Snappy performance ; Amazing value

Quiet, lackluster speakers ; Poor battery life

Acer’s C7 Chromebook is a stunning value. The only major sacrifice a buyer has to make is accepting the Chrome OS, which is becoming easier over time.

Acer C7 Chromebook

 

Acer's Chromebook delivers Chrome OS for a rock-bottom price, but it's sunk by short battery life and a thicker and heavier design than the competition.

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

Very short battery life; Bland and relatively thick design

Click to EnlargeThe 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...
