Chromebook 14 CB3-431-C5EX Review
The Acer Chromebook 14 has everything you’d expect and then gives you more. For one thing, it’s completely encased in aluminum alloy. Then you get a bigger 14-inch anti-glare HD or Full HD screen, up to 12 hours of battery life and enhanced wireless speeds. And did we mention it’s absolutely stunning?
Acer has identified the Chromebook market gaps and solved almost everything in this extremely solid offering – a thin, metal, almost Mac-like build, armed with 4GB of RAM, a full 14″ HD display and a Quad-core CPU. Even the touchpad and keyboard perform as well as the very best Chromebooks currently available (which, until now, I would have said were built by Dell and Samsung). The performance never lags, it meets the 10-12 hour battery life promise in my usage tests, and it’s quickly become my go-to computer for both home and work.
