Acer Chromebook 15 CB5-571 Review

The great IPS monitor (Acer calls it comfy-view) dissolves in FHD so 1920 x 1080-. Right angle-stable, it is and it is a true joy to work. Everything looks clear and crisp sharp. I very much appreciate learned IPS displays on my PC and so not want to miss the quality advantage over TN displays. It is therefore quite bright, so that’s completely enough in normal room light environment, to make the brightness to about 60%. More information about the Acer Chromebook 15.
The integrated Intel i3 5005U together with the 4 GB of DDR3 RAM does its work quickly and you advised as the system would soon its limits not the impression streams and three open documents with 10-12 of open tabs,.
You can often read on the net that Chromebook smoothly can play often no FHD videos with their low-power CPUs. HD Netflix content or FHD-YouTube videos be played without stress.
Good enough for me personally, I expect no records and sensational benchmark results for mobile hardware for Office applications. For browser games I could never excite me and for everything else, I have my PC.
Fully loaded the status display shows approx. 6 h me. But only the minimum value to be seem. At the moment, he is 61% and specifies 5h52min. (Brightness about 50%). Probably much that depends on the usage patterns. You can also not really trust the car manufacturer‘s fuel consumption information.
Since the tastes diverge most. The textile-like surface of the enclosure but it makes a nice impression and is also not cheap. The General processing is solid for the price segment. It squeaks nothing at the lift and turn. Of course we will see more impurities and quirks on the white surface. But for this it looks chic, I think. You can’t have everything.

Here are the 15.6 rather negatively affect as the Chromebook but rather bulky (38.4 x 24.6 x 2.5 cm). In the category of the smaller models can score in my opinion more. But the larger display was more attractive for me. The large housing offers to incorporate space 2 stereo speakers of course. Acer has also done this and they do not even so bad sound for a notebook. Often have smaller Chromebook sitting speaker under the keyboard. Do expect no miracles here, however. Headphones can be connected at any time or via Bluetooth appropriate speaker. I for my part stream like music while I browse, write, etc. Solid, has a pleasant stop and is also not too tiny. The palm rest comfortably next to the touchpad. Unfortunately, it is not lit, but don’t expect it in the price range. You must Access pixels 2 to Google’s and more than twice as much money to spend. Is surprisingly pleasant to use. I‘m actually more of the mouse user, but I can live with the trackpad. It is also very smart and the multi finger skills still simplifies the control/navigation. Nevertheless I connect better a mouse, just when I write.

It works a mini fan with output back to himself and starts if necessary. That is probably the compromise, if you install a bit more CPU than it is to find in other Chromebook. At normal background noise but not heard him. Otherwise, one hears no further noises, yes a SSD is installed. I could find no significant heat generation. No comparison to some smartphones under full load. 😉

A 64 bit version of chrome OS (which is basically an enhanced version of chrome browser) is pre-installed and self updating in the background. The whole thing looks very tidy and Spartan, but in a pleasant way.
The hammer but is the startup time of a few seconds! Dressed and …zack at the password entry. Everything works beautifully coordinated and liquid in the operation. Curse or blessing is the need to be online. You can do much offline too.
In the chrome Web store, you can stock up with all kinds of software. You must be fair mention that you can compare it with the play store. There are a bunch of applications, but the play store works there currently superior. Google works to supposedly it run Android apps on chrome OS.
