The Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055) is the best inexpensive Chromebook currently on the market. Though it still has a couple of faults, the new version of the Acer C7 Chromebook is faster, longer lasting, and better all around. All this and its very low price tag makes it the best inexpensive Chromebook on the market.

For shoppers looking to get online for a reasonable price, the $279 Acer C710 Chromebook is a solid choice. You get much longer battery life than the previous C7 along with a faster processor and more onboard storage than the $249 Samsung Chromebook Series 3 (320GB vs. 16GB). We also like the Acer's brighter display, even though it's glossy.
