Acer Chromebook 514 Review | Trusted Reviews


Light, nice-looking and good value for money

Good value for money ; Slim and light ; Metal chassis

Display quality is not great ; Performance can grind to a halt if overloaded ; Some apps like Spotify won't work

The Acer Chromebook 514 is light, nice-looking and good value for money. If you only need a laptop for writing, spreadsheets and email, and you’re looking to save money, this is an ideal choice.

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.

NO backlit keyboard


The chromebook is great but NOT as listed. There is NO backlit keyboard so if like me you needed this feature due to poor eyesight and using at night then it's poor. The chrombook itself is brilliant, jst a shame the features listed are there.
