Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111-C4HT Review

The Acer is not a stylish eye catcher but very solid, is robust and has distributed its 1.08 kg evenly ‘thin’. Unfortunately, the charger with his massive, heavy 3-pole power charging cable and solid grounding plug not to fit. With a battery life of almost 10 hours (drops of course video consumer or hardware, such as E.g. USB-CD drive) the charger remains already at home.  Very disturbing is that a “pickled” SD card almost half out. A permanent “in it“, is not practically possible to increase the storage capacity. There I will try (using the micro SD cards) “shortened” SD card adapter (Ramoz etc.).
Also the keyboard at a Chromebook is unusual. Function keys and the like are missing the keyboard itself very well “writable” . The delete key, and PageUp/down keys missing me hard. You can compensate much but by “Shortcut Software”The audio plug (or the coupling) has a very poor quality (intermittent contact; bad touch). 
 Strangely, USB flash drives and SD cards are not detected. Apparently formatted storage are “only with” the Chromebook usable but also on other devices. Looking at as a formatted media using “fdisk” it is apparent that no (normal) partitions on it. A Chromebook is always at the mercy of Google (log in with your Google account).
