Acer Chromebook 514

 

Aluminum-clad and ready for all day off the plug, the Acer Chromebook 514 is a reasonably priced standout on the premium Chromebook stage that's still right-priced for students and budget buyers.

Sharp-looking aluminum design for a budget machine. Excellent battery life. Touch display (as tested) looks great. Comfortable backlit keyboard. Big touchpad.

Processor could use a pick-me-up. Ho-hum speakers.

Bottom Line: Aluminum-clad and ready for all day off the plug, the Acer Chromebook 514 is a reasonably-priced standout on the premium Chromebook stage that's right-priced for students and budget buyers.

Acer Chromebook 514 Review: Overpriced hardware that under-delivers

 

As Chrome OS continues to improve and offer consistent features and experience across all devices (with the exception of the Pixel line's special treatment), the only real difference between two Chromebooks is the external and internal hardware. The...

Light, nice-looking and good value for money

Good value for money ; Slim and light ; Metal chassis

Display quality is not great ; Performance can grind to a halt if overloaded ; Some apps like Spotify won't work

The Acer Chromebook 514 is light, nice-looking and good value for money. If you only need a laptop for writing, spreadsheets and email, and you’re looking to save money, this is an ideal choice.

ACER CB514-1H Touch 14" Intel® Celeron® Chromebook - 32 GB eMMC

 

Easy to get started. Really clear screen quality. Nice feel to keyboard.

Casing around base has a slight lip which you can feel when you put your hands under it in order to move it around / lift it off your lap. I was a bit worried this would be sharp but after a few times using it, I would say it's 'noticeable' rather than...

Looks great, boots up quickly

The Zoom extension is appalling a d freezes when you’re in the middle of a call. Bought the device mainly for this reason and I’m really disappointed

ACER CB514-1H Touch 14" Intel® Celeron® Chromebook - 32 GB eMMC

 

Seamless as long as you stick with Google! Very nicely made bit of kit and excellent value for money. Up and running in seconds, little danger from virus etc. Operates a bit like a giant smart phone.

There is no email app that gets anywhere near Outlook, so you still have to use Microsoft, even though Google Docs does a perfectly adequate job for most of us with document and spreadsheets etc. It takes some getting used to, but does the job, if a...

ACER CB514-1HT Touch 14" Intel® Celeron® Chromebook - 128 GB eMMC

 

Looks nice and great battery life.

It’s useless, really difficult to use, hard to set up iTunes, word and other apps. I bought it few months back and am now selling for half the price
