Acer Chromebook 14 for Work


For the business user who needs all-day battery life and MIL-SPEC–tested durability, the Acer Chromebook 14 for Work is one of the more powerful Chrome OS laptops we've seen. Its price, however, is firmly in Windows-laptop territory.

Core i5 processor and 8GB of memory deliver solid performance. Long battery life. Gorilla Glass 3 lid. Narrow screen bezel. Good selection of ports, including USB Type-C. MIL-STD 801G tested. Spill-resistant keyboard.

Pricey for a chromebook. 32GB of local storage. Single USB-C port. Top lid is prone to fingerprints.

The good-looking Acer Chromebook 14 for Work delivers some flash, is powerful enough for most business tasks, and can last more than 10 hours on a single battery charge. Now that some businesses are starting to embrace Chrome OS, the Chromebook 14 for...

Acer Chromebook 14


The Acer Chromebook 14 gives you just about all the features and quality you need from a basic laptop, plus extra niceties like a metal body and almost 12 hours of battery life.

Affordable price. Almost 12 hours of battery life. Large 1080p HD screen. Metal body. 4GB of memory. Matte screen.

Stiff keyboard. No SD card slot.

The Acer Chromebook 14 has a 14-inch 1080p HD IPS screen, premium-feeling aluminum construction, a quad-core processor, better-than-average system memory and storage, good connectivity, and a sweet $300 price tag to top it off. Its only drawbacks are a...

Acer Chromebook 14 review: a good value, but unprepared for the future


Acer's Chromebook 14 is a two-sided story. For one, it shows the remarkable progress that we've made around what a $300 laptop can and should be. It's made of aluminum, has a fantastic keyboard /...

Aluminum finish ; Better-than-average display ; Good value

No touchscreen ; Lacks SD slot ; Mediocre audio

Acer Chromebook 14 review: A 14-inch Chromebook that looks expensive, but isn't


A large screen, a nice aluminum case and power to get you through a work day and then some -- all for less than $300.

The inexpensive Acer Chromebook 14's aluminum body is much nicer than the plastic competition. The matte-finish, 14-inch full HD IPS display is a great size for work and play, but still keeps this laptop's footprint small enough for commuting.

It has no SD or microSD card slot for expanding its 32GB of storage. The keyboard isn't backlit and shallow. Power users will want to step up to the Work version of this Chromebook or look elsewhere.

The Acer Chromebook 14 stands out for its stylish design and big screen at an affordable price. If you're looking for a classier Chromebook, this is it.

Acer Chromebook 14 review: Great design, very good performance


The Acer Chromebook 14 was released recently, and it touted some pretty impressive features. This Acer Chromebook 14 review puts those features to the test.

Design is top-notch, battery life is fantastic, the full HD screen is bright and looks very good.

A backlit keyboard would really be nice, though its omission is understandable.

Chromebooks aren’t for everybody, but nearly anybody can get use out of a Chromebook. They are ideal for students, and can even work well in some office situations. They’re even great as a secondary computer for browsing on the couch, or other similar...

Acer Chromebook 14 review: Solid and affordable, with a familiar design


Chromebooks come in a range of sizes and configurations these days, including convertible models that double up as both laptop and tablet. However, Acer's Chromebook 14 (CB3-431) is a straightforward device that simply aims to provide a low-cost...
