Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 review - a cheap but productive laptop

 

The Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 is great value Windows laptop that costs just £150

It may not be particularly fast or have the best display, but as long as you can work within the Cloudbook 14's limitations, this is as good as you're going to get for under £200. It wins a Recommended award.

Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 (A01-431-C1FZ)

 

The Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 is an inexpensive laptop that leverages cloud services like a chromebook. And since it runs Windows 10, all of your legacy apps and plug-ins will still work.

Windows 10 system for a nice price. 64GB of flash storage. 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Comes with one-year subscription to Office 365 and OneDrive. Almost 14 hours of battery life in testing.

1,366-by-768 screen shows some pixelation.

Conclusion The Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 is a relatively average budget laptop. Its one extraordinary feature is its almost 14 hours of battery life. The Cloudbook 14 successfully leverages cloud and online services for day-to-day use, though its...

Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 AO1-431-C6QM Notebook Review

 

Typewriter with stamina. Acer's 14-incher only brings a weak processor but offers very long battery runtimes. The price of about 280 Euros (~$310) and the included one-year license for Office 365 Personal might make the notebook attractive for many users.

matte display ; works silently ; very good battery life ; 2-years warranty ; 1-year license for Office 365 Personal

cannot be upgraded ; low storage capacity

The 14-inch Cloudbook delivers sufficient performance for simple office and Internet applications. Thanks to the decoder integrated in the graphics core, the computer can also play videos. In contrast to its Chromebook competitors, the Cloudbook allows...

Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 (AO1-431-C1FZ) Review and Ratings

 

The components and display are as basic as they come, but the Cloudbook 14 delivers lots of screen spread, good battery life, and a decent typing experience for $249.99.

$249.99 for a 14-inch laptop with a year of Office 365 ; Very good battery life ; Good keyboard layout ; Reasonable build quality for the money

Lackluster, dim display ; Poor, low-res Webcam ; Scant RAM, ho-hum Celeron CPU cramp multitasking or using media-editing apps

Our main complaints about the Aspire One Cloudbook 14 are its performance and the screen quality. It’s one of the pokiest recent-model Windows computers you can buy, unless you start factoring in Atom-based portables. Although it’s only $250, the last...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Excellent for what it is.

 

Bear in mind this is the least expensive 'laptop' you can get with full Windows 10 on it. There are a lot of things the little Celeron chip will NOT do, such as intense 3D gaming. It does not handle 1080p video well, you will start to see slowdowns at...

Lightweight Comfortable keyboard Long battery life Stays cool to the touch. Silent operation. Windows 10 (not a Chromebook) The smallish size and light weight means this thing is super portable. I instinctively held it up to my ear to listen for the...

none, considering the price.
