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.

Long battery life; Both USB Type-C and USB 3.0 ports; Light weight ; Dull, muted display; Stiff keyboard ; The Acer Chromebook 15 is lightweight and has strong endurance, but it suffers from weak image quality and an unpleasant typing experience.

Acer Chromebook 15 CB5 Review

 

All grown up. For the first time, Acer has increased their Chromebook's size and churned out a 15.6-inch device that certainly gave us some pleasant surprises.

Matte IPS panel, System performance under Chrome OS, Always remains quiet and cool, Battery life

Maintenance options, Keyboard travel length, Limitations of Chrome OS

The Acer Chromebook CB5 trumps its competitors in several different categories. True, the notebook is equipped with an energy-saving processor, but the chip is perfectly complemented by the amount of RAM, and it runs the Google operating system...

The Best Chromebooks You Can Buy Right Now

 

The best big screen Chromebook

Acer's Chromebook has better-than-average build quality for its class along with great speakers, solid performance, and good stamina.

Just keep in mind that this is no petite computer -- nor is it meant to be. If you need a laptop that's ideal for carrying around or traveling, it's not going to be the device for you.

If you don't carry your computer around much and want a large laptop to keep at your desk, this is the Chromebook you want.

Acer Chromebook 15

 

We review the Acer Chromebook 15 (CB515-1HT), the latest 15-inch Chrome OS-running laptop-tablet hybrid from Acer, to see what you get for £400-odd.

Crisp visuals ; Touchscreen controls ; Firm, well-sized keyboard

Chrome OS is basic ; Large and heavy ; Battery life bettered by rivals

The Acer Chromebook 15 is a basic family laptop that’s best left at home, unless you know you’ll be able to keep its battery topped up wherever else you’re working.

Acer Chromebook 15 review

 

Chromebook trades 'OK' performance for huge battery life

Unbelievable battery life ; Attractive, fanless design ; 1080p touch display

Trackpad feels clunky ; Easy to weigh down with tabs

Fantastic battery life, solid construction and a gorgeous exterior make up for a low performance ceiling in Acer’s 15-inch Chromebook for the masses. When compared to the best Chromebooks out there, this is an excellent value.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Simple, Effective, Surpassed Expectations

 

I really think this is one of my favorite products I have bought in a while. The build quality is impressive for such an affordable machine. I have read many pro reviews that say the screen isn't great. I feel like this screen is pretty nice. I stare...

The only con I have is that there is no 'Hardwire' option for internet. Wireless only. Which isn't a big deal but sometimes I would like to plug it in.
