Chromebook 14 CB3-431-C5XK Review
The inexpensive Acer Chromebook 14’s aluminum body is much nicer than the plastic competition of most other Chromebooks. 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. The 14 inch Full HD IPS display boasts 41% more pixels than an HD display making photos, videos, games and presentations vivid and text sharp and legible. The anti-glare panel minimizes reflections and enables students and families to enjoy the Chromebook outside in sunlight or in the classroom resulting in less eye strain after long hours of use.

The Acer Chromebook 14 is equipped with the new dual-band 802.11ac wireless connection and Bluetooth 4.2 technologies. Unplug and stay connected — to the web, to wireless devices, and to the world. The new MIMO 2×2 802.11ac wireless helps boost internet speeds to up to three times faster than previous generations making everything from online gaming to streaming video both faster and more reliable.
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.
