Acer Chromebook 15′ Review

I’m in love with the super-sized screen, close to 12 hours of battery life, loudspeakers, and solid performance. I believe bigger is better so the Acer Chromebook 15′ is the perfect value if you’re in the market for a laptop. Oh, and the backlit keyboard scored a perfect 10 with me.

For the past two weeks, I’ve spent a lot of time with my new Acer Chromebook 15. I love dual upward facing speakers and HD audio for stellar sound quality as well as a built-in HD webcam which supports High Dynamic Range imaging so you can experience more detailed images and crisper video chats.

When my mom came to visit she fell in love with the durability of the Acer Chromebook 15. This Chromebook has been reinforced to handle more bumps and drops; the case can withstand up to 132 pounds (60kg) of force, while the corners can tolerate up to 23.6-inch (60cm) drops without damage.

 

The Chromebook operates on the Chrome OS system and allows quick access to Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Chrome. Use the Google Store to download apps that are not already preloaded to the laptop or download a video for offline watching using the Netflix app, or download games to play when there isn’t a Wi-Fi network available.

Here are the highlights in short form:

  • Ultra-affordable for $199 at Best Buy

  • 15.6” HD widescreen display

  • Up to 12 hours of battery life

  • Super durable – can withstand bumps and drops

  • Dual upward facing speakers and HD audio

  • HD webcam

  • Support for Android Apps right out of the box

  • The convenience of Chrome

Specs

  • 4GB RAM

The Acer Chromebook 15, which is available at BestBuy.com for just $199 and the perfect gift for Mom this Mother’s Day!

This is a sponsored post in exchange for my honest opinion I have either received an item for free or at a discounted cost. For this review, I was able to pick the item I wanted to feature.
