Acer C720-3404 Review

 

Powerful and Chromebook? That's about as useful, to be crude, as a right-mouse button on a Mac. And yet that's what Acer is pushing on the latest iteration of its C720 notebook. You'll recognize the model number, of course, as we've reviewed it before...

Review Acer C720-2800 Chromebook

 

Back to basics. While efforts continue to try and rework the Chromebook equation to provide a more enticing balance of performance and build quality, Acer sees no harm in sticking to the original plan, with a budget plastic case design, an understated...

Extremely portable; Excellent battery life; Good application performance; Smooth video playback and output to external monitor; Good touchpad

Cheap plastic build; Unremarkable display panel; Below-average, clattery keyboard; Mediocre audio performance; Warranty void sticker prevents access to internals

Perhaps, then, it would be better off viewing the Acer C720-2800 Chromebook as an alternative to a tablet or netbook than a replacement for a full-blown computer. Approached from this perspective, it serves as a logical candidate for someone who is in...

Acer Chromebook 15 Review

 

With a well-built and attractive design, strong performance and a 1080p IPS display the Acer Chromebook 15 offers a whole lot of value for its $350 price tag.

Attractive and durable build ; FHD display ; Excellent sound quality ; Long-lasting battery life ; Great performance for a Chromebook

Bulky for a Chromebook ; Color reproduction is a mixed bag

The Acer Chromebook 15 is a solid computing device, with great value for its $350 price tag. The thick plastic chassis not only looks great, but offers a level of durability and build quality that isn’t often seen at this price range.

Acer's Chromebook 15 is a $350 computer worth considering

 

The Chromebook 15's most defining feature is its most obvious: it's big! In fact, it's bigger than the 15-inch MacBook Pro I use as my daily workhorse. It's kind of clunky, kind of chunky, pretty ugly, and the white textured finish on my review unit...

Big screen ; Great trackpad ; Fast performance ; Long battery life

It’s big and clunky ; Plastic finish feels cheap ; Good luck printing

$350 can buy you a hell of a computer

Acer Chromebook 15 Review: huge screen, tiny price

 

When it comes to Chromebooks, few set themselves apart. The Pixel is astonishing, but seems easily dismissed by most due to the price tag. At $999, the Pixel is just too much to spend for Chrome OS, and far too much out-of-pocket to suffer its...

Acer C720 Chromebook (C720-3404)

 

The Acer C720 adds an Intel Core i3 processor to the company's Chromebook lineup. Chrome OS power users who rely on dozens of extensions and plugins should feel the benefit, but they'll pay.

Seven hours of battery life. 4GB of memory and a Intel Core i3 CPU. HDMI and USB 3.0 ports

Relatively expensive. Narrow viewing angles. Drab design

The Acer C720 Chromebook (C720-3404) ($379.99 as tested) is a power user's Chromebook, which at first seems to be an oxymoron. If you've already had experience with Chrome OS-based laptops, but want a system with a bit more power for multitasking or...

Acer C720 Chromebook (Core i3) Review

 

The updated Acer C720 Chromebook is a faster, more powerful improvement on the original model, but is it worth the upgrade?

Faster than the original C720; Lightweight and ultra-portable; Good battery life

Bland design; Limited app selection

The Core i3 version of the Acer C720 Chrombeook is a faster, more powerful improvement on the original.

Acer C720 review (Core i3): a more powerful Chromebook

 

Whether rightly or wrongly, Chromebooks have earned a reputation for being the new netbooks. Slowly, though, things are starting to change. The designs a

Core i3 processor offers modest, but noticeable performance gains ; Battery life keeps pace with lower-powered models ; Generally a good value, especially considering the price

Screen has poor viewing angles ; Generally cheap build quality, including a shallow keyboard ; Only Acer's lower-end Chromebook is offered with a touchscreen

As the first Chromebook with a Core i3 processor, the Acer C720 offers modest performance gains over its rivals, along with equally long battery life. You might want to wait and see if other laptop makers come out with something a little better...

The Acer C720 Chromebook offers an excellent ChromeOS experience in a very portable package for a very affordable price.

Acer C720P-2600 review

 

Attractive black-and-white design, Pleasing keyboard and touchpad, Quick processor, Solid battery life, Good value

Low-quality 720p display, Weak speakers

The Acer C720P Chromebook is a solid laptop. The processor is adequately quick, the keyboard and touchpad hold up under heavy use, and the battery offers plenty of life for a system of this size. Given these traits, it’s easy to see why some consumers...
