This big-ass Chromebook is a good-ass deal

 

This big-screen alternative to tiny Chromebooks is a big bargain.

The Acer Chromebook 15 is a stylish notebook with a large 15.6-inch screen. It has a backlit keyboard, touchscreen and loud speakers. Battery life is long-lasting.

The screen is dull. Chromebooks have inherent OS limitations you need to be aware of. Low-end CPU hampers performance.

As one of the biggest Chromebooks, the Acer laptop is perfectly priced for anyone interested in a big laptop for basic online use.

Acer Chromebook 15 (2017)

 

Acer's aluminum-clad Chromebook 15 packs spectacular battery life along with a sprawling 15.6-inch screen, but it's not very bright.

Colossal battery life. Snappy keyboard. Two USB-C and two USB 3.0 ports.

Big and bulky. Lackluster display. Android app support remains hit-or-miss.

Bottom Line: Acer's aluminum-clad Chromebook 15 packs spectacular battery life along with a sprawling 15.6-inch screen, but it's not very bright.

Review: Acer Chromebook 15 (2017)

 

This laptop's big aspirations are undermined by software bugs and weak hardware.

Biggest Chromebook yet with a sharp 15.6-inch HD screen. Chrome OS has gotten a lot more useful in the last few years. The keyboard is comfy and there are plenty of ports. Battery life can reach 10 hours. It has a touchscreen!

Half-aluminum body doesn’t feel as nice as you'd think. Pentium processor is underpowered. Android apps are fun, but still limited and buggy. The touchpad rattles and has a stiff click. It completely crashed twice without warning.

Acer Chromebook 15 (CB3-532-C47C)

 

The Acer Chromebook 15 isn't the prettiest chromebook out there, but a 15-inch screen and 15+ hours of battery life for a mere $200 is a tough deal to beat.

Class-leading battery life and 15-inch screen for an an excellent price. Dual-band 802.11ac wireless.

Dowdy design. Screen looks a bit grainy. Key travel is short.

Conclusion If you're looking for a bargain on a chromebook, and you value function over form, it's really hard to do better than the Chromebook 15. You might be giving up style, but in return you'll get a bigger screen and absurdly long battery...

Acer Chromebook 15 (white, 32GB)

 

For however you might feel about Google's Chrome OS and Chromebooks, there's no denying that they are popular alternatives to Windows and Mac computers mainly because they're inexpensive, relatively secure and what can be done within the confines of...

The Acer Chromebook 15 is available with an excellent 15.6-inch 1080p IPS display at a budget-friendly price. Battery life is very good as is performance from the fifth-gen Intel Celeron processor.

Larger size and weight make it a little less travel-friendly than other Chromebooks. The white casing gets dirty easily and it's not the most attractive Chromebook we've laid eyes on.

If your one gripe about Chromebooks is the small screen sizes, the Acer Chromebook 15 is the solution and it's a very nice solution at that.

Acer Chromebook 15 Review: Bigger Is Better

 

Acer aimed to change my mind about Chromebooks with their Acer Chromebook 15. Let's see if they did, this is the Acer Chromebook 15 review.

Screen size and screen resolution are tops! Intel Core i3 and HD 5500 graphics.

A little flex where the screen and body meet. No backlit keyboard.

If you’re in the market for a Chromebook with a nice big beautiful screen and a good price tag, look no further than the Acer Chromebook 15, it changed my mind about Chromebooks.

Acer Chromebook 15 (2018) Review and Ratings

 

With its aluminum skin, bright full HD touch screen, and comfy keyboard, the latest Acer Chromebook 15 makes a surprisingly strong argument for ditching a Windows laptop and going Chrome. The Pentium CPU holds back performance but enables impressive...

Excellent battery life ; Stylish aluminum enclosure ; Bright, spacious 1080p touch screen ; Roomy backlit keyboard

Mediocre benchmark test results ; No HDMI port

While the Chrome OS environment is clearly intended for Web-centric activities, there is a solid selection of Chrome-specific apps and games available for download, some of which run locally for times when you have to be offline. And if there are...

Acer Chromebook 15 (2016) Review and Ratings

 

The 2016 Acer Chromebook 15 isn't perfect. But if you need an ultra-affordable Internet-access device with a big screen, this $199 Walmart model is as perfect as it's likely to get.

Low price ; Large screen ; Roomy, comfortable keyboard ; Long battery life ; Will support Android apps

Slow performance ; A bit bulky ; Screen is not 1080p HD ; Narrow screen viewing angle ; Pitiable speakers

As with other Chromebooks, the expected usage scenario for the Acer Chromebook 15 is surfing, streaming, and Web-based applications such as the seminal Google Docs. For working locally, a good number of downloads are available on the Chrome Web Store....

Acer Chromebook 15 (Core i3) Review and Ratings

 

With its 15.6-inch display, the Acer Chromebook 15 looks and feels more like a traditional Windows laptop than a Chromebook. But if its extra size might be a blessing, its $449 price tag might be a curse.

Great 15.6-inch display ; Quick performance and startup times

Bulky and heavy ; Priced more like a Windows laptop than a Chromebook ; Not the prettiest Chromebook we've seen

Much harder on a system than everyday browsing and Google Docs work, our battery rundown test involves looping a video with screen brightness set at 50 percent and audio volume at 100 percent.
