Consumer review (

Long battery life, light, quick internet, I have a solid refurb, large screen, speakers that can produce sound much better than my Dell laptop.


I will never purchase a Chromebook ever again: my tablet is a bit more functional and more portable for 2/3rds the price and 1/3rd the volume. If I could find a way, I'd rather have a lightweight Linux distro on this hardware. The keyboard really...

My title has the 'pros'.

About as functional as a dumbed down tablet. ChromeOS itself is a major 'con': 1] By deliberate design decisions, ChromeOS does not support nonGoogle apps, such as those as those apps I've used in Linux and Androids 2.2 through 5.0. 2] This Acer has...

Very Nice


For the money this is a great alternative to an actual Laptop. Great for taking on trips and using on the road when all you need is to stay "connected."

FAST Internet, very good streaming, HD screen, overall for the money this is a great deal

Not easy to put icons on the desktop. Not easy to stay logged in. Must log back in everytime if it has been sitting for a while

Can't believe the what I got for the price


don't know why you wouldn't but this if you want one

The size of the display is incredible, it completely dwarfs my spouse's 10.8' Chromebook. The speakers on the sides of the keyboard are an improvement to the usual Boots quick I bought it for checking email, surfing the net and watching...

The keyboard is a bit offset, but there are raised 'bumps' on the 'f' and 'j' keys if using the home row means anything to you

Acer Chromebook 15.6"


I see they are out of stock, I would by another for my wife if needed. I wouldn't use as my only computer but, I am now using it far more than any I own.

Long Battery life Almost Instant on Fast Start from shutdown Storage is OK Great for checking email, Facebook or scrolling around looking for stuff on internet Light weight Good size display, bright easy to read.

I will agree with previous poster that it feels like keyboard is offset to right, easy to adapt. Not many apps, but I have other computers for that. I am not able to print with google print as the printer I bought last year is not compatible, oh well,...

Bought for young student


Bought one of these for myself and liked it so much I bought one for my son as well. He likes it, very happy with it since is his first "laptop".

Works great for my son. He can do his homework, play some online games, watch youtube and search on the web. Safe for kids since he can't download any virus into it.

Acer CB3-531-C4A5


Although it has a few cons, I got it refurbished for 135, and you really can't complain when you get a 15 inch laptop for that mucb

It's a laptop Has an awesome battery life Processor isnt the fastest but you can't do too much in Chrome OS anyway

Screen is grainy No caps lock button Processor isnt the fastest but you can't do too much in Chrome OS anyway
