Acer Chromebook 15 preview: Large and in charge

 

The Acer Chromebook 15 is the perfect example of how Chromebooks have progressed over recent years. No longer does the word 'Chromebook' dictate an ultra-budget

The Acer Chromebook 15 might be large, but it's certainly in charge. As an almost-portable desktop replacement proposition, the combination of its decent screen, stacks of ports, and premium design ensure it'll be a king of productivity.

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.

Acer Chromebook 15 (2017) review

 

If you believe "bigger is better," allow me to introduce the . For $399 (£249), and currently on sale at Best Buy for $349 , the laptop packs a 15.6-inch touchscreen, making it one of the biggest Chromebook models you can buy. AU pricing and...

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 CB3-532 review

  (Rating Hidden)

A 15-inch Chromebook, the Acer CB3-532 eschews the traditional Windows operating system for the streamlined, cloud-based Chrome operating system instead. Promising a 12-hour battery life and a snappy start-up time, is this a suitable replacement for...

This big-ass Chromebook is a good-ass deal

 

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

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...
