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.

Light, nice-looking and good value for money

I'm a complete technophobe who is still getting used to it so think the improvement needed is with me, not the chromebook! Don't know how to upload photos yet - sorry!
