Acer Chromebook 13 (2018) review

 

A Chromebook out of time

Robust build ; Powerful ; Beautiful display

Too expensive ; Lackluster speakers ; No touchscreen

The Acer Chromebook 13 is a powerful Chromebook, packed with the latest hardware. But, it’s more expensive than comparable Windows laptops and lacks a touchscreen. This is a fine Chromebook for travelers, but – at this price – most would-be customers...

Acer Chromebook 13 CB713 review: Looks but not longevity

 

Impressive screen and value, but weak battery life means the Chromebook falls just short of an award

Luxury quality build ; Fantastic screen resolution ; Solid sound quality

Poor battery life ; Distracting noise from the fan

At a higher price the Acer’s weaknesses might be fatal, but for just over £500 it’s actually good value. If it had more stamina, it would walk away with top honours.

Acer Chromebook 13 review

 

Acer knows how to make good, solid, reliable Chromebooks, and this model is no exception. Performance was always decent, the screen size is a welcome addition, and the long battery life makes it a great option for travelling. It’s just a shame that the...

Acer CB5-311 Chromebook review

  (Rating Hidden)

At only £200 to buy, we were keen to see whether the Acer CB5-311 Chromebook would make a satisfactory laptop purchase. There's no doubting how slim and light it is, but does the battery last long enough to outperform its rivals? We ran it through our...

Acer Chromebook 13 review: long battery life, sharp screen, good price

 

After years of getting little respect, Chromebooks are finally on the rise (at least in schools), which means every major PC maker is trying to get in on

One of the few Chromebooks with a 1080p screen ; Long battery life ; Runs quietly, stays cool ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; Competitive price

Performance not as strong as promised ; Limited viewing angles ; Build quality feels cheap next to some rival devices ; Heavy compared to some competing models

As the first Chrome OS device with an NVIDIA Tegra chip, the Acer Chromebook 13 isn't as powerful as promised. Still, it manages to redeem itself with long battery life, a sharp screen, a comfortable keyboard and, most importantly, a fair price.

Review: Acer Chromebook 13

 

The Chromebook 13's great looks and long battery life don't make up for poor performance.

Thin, solid design with minimalist lines makes this a great looking Chromebook. The high-resolution screen, fanless design, and long battery life are all best in class

The great looks and long battery life don't make up for poor performance. The occasionally incompatible app makes this a slightly crippled machine even by Chrome OS standards

Acer Chromebook 13 (CB5-311-T9B0)

 

The Acer Chromebook 13 is on the cutting edge, with an Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, advanced gaming support, and a 13-inch full HD display. But even with all these advancements, it doesn't seem much better than most of the competition.

Large 13-inch display with 1,920-by-1,080 resolution. New Nvidia Tegra K1 promises WebGL and Unity 5 3D capability. Good-looking design.

White plastic chassis shows every scuff and smudge. Laggy media streaming. Few Chrome games take advantage of new capabilities.

Conclusion The Acer Chromebook 13 (CB5-311-T9B0) is definitely notable among its peers, if only for its new processor and larger full HD display, but it doesn't offer a significantly improved experience, and the experience is everything when dealing...

Acer Chromebook 13 review

 

Chromebooks are largely cut from the same cloth. Small, lower-resolution screens, minimal onboard storage, low-end Intel CPUs, and modest plastic bodies. A few exceptions pop up now and then, such as Lenovo's new touchscreen hybrid-style Yoga 11e , but...

The Acer Chromebook has a slim design, a high-res 13-inch screen, and a fast Nvidia K1 processor for a graphics and battery boost over other Chromebooks.

Like other Chromebooks, offline functionality is extremely limited. The large screen lacks touch input, and the ARM processor presents some compatibility issues, even with online Chrome apps.

One of the nicer-looking and better-performing Chrome OS systems, the 13-inch Acer Chromebook adds some zip by ditching Intel for an Nvidia processor, but also hits a few issues with popular Chrome apps.

The best Chromebooks all have one thing in common: they're small. The most popular Chromebooks have small, low-resolution 11.6-inch displays. They may offer a low price, stellar battery life, and...
