Acer Chromebook 14 review

 

No, it isn't a MacBook Air

Acer's Chromebook 14 looks sharp and works well – so long as you don't try to watch HD video.

Acer Chromebook 14

 

The Acer Chromebook 14 gives you just about all the features and quality you need from a basic laptop, plus extra niceties like a metal body and almost 12 hours of battery life.

Affordable price. Almost 12 hours of battery life. Large 1080p HD screen. Metal body. 4GB of memory. Matte screen.

Stiff keyboard. No SD card slot.

The Acer Chromebook 14 has a 14-inch 1080p HD IPS screen, premium-feeling aluminum construction, a quad-core processor, better-than-average system memory and storage, good connectivity, and a sweet $300 price tag to top it off. Its only drawbacks are a...

Acer Chromebook 14 review: a good value, but unprepared for the future

 

Acer's Chromebook 14 is a two-sided story. For one, it shows the remarkable progress that we've made around what a $300 laptop can and should be. It's made of aluminum, has a fantastic keyboard /...

Aluminum finish ; Better-than-average display ; Good value

No touchscreen ; Lacks SD slot ; Mediocre audio

Acer Chromebook 14 review

 

Chromebooks -- laptops running on Google's Chrome operating system -- are more known for being small and cheap than for stylish design. The majority of them have 11.6- or 13.3-inch screens and are plastic, which keeps the prices low. That's what makes...

The inexpensive Acer Chromebook 14's aluminum body is much nicer than the plastic competition. The matte-finish, 14-inch full HD IPS display is a great size for work and play, but still keeps this laptop's footprint small enough for commuting.

It has no SD or microSD card slot for expanding its 32GB of storage. The keyboard isn't backlit and shallow. Power users will want to step up to the Work version of this Chromebook or look elsewhere.

The Acer Chromebook 14 stands out for its stylish design and big screen at an affordable price. If you're looking for a classier Chromebook, this is it.

Acer Chromebook 14 Review Shawn Knight

 

The Acer Chromebook 14 is a svelte machine that aims for a perfect blend of style, features and performance. Unlike the Pixel, this laptop comes in at just $300, powered by a quad-core Intel Celeron N3160 processor and Intel HD Graphics 400 alongside...

Acer's Chromebook 14 is the best Chromebook $300 can buy

 

You won't find another Chromebook with this much value at such a low price.

Premium metal design ; Long battery life ; Solid keyboard and trackpad ; Great performance for $300 ; Large full HD screen

Keys can be a little mushy

No other Chromebook comes close to Acer's Chromebook 14 in design, performance and battery life for $300.
