The Acer C7 is altogether a more powerful and capable machine than its Samsung rival, but the downside is that battery life isn’t stellar. We can’t run our standard laptop-based tests on Chromebooks, but, even with the screen dimmed a little, we were able to extract only four to five hours’ work time from the C7. You can expect an hour or so more in offline mode.

If you’re particularly precious about the number of keys you have under your fingertips, the size of your hard drive or the brightness of your screen - but aren’t concerned with what your laptop looks like - then by all means, check out Acer’s take on the Chromebook. Otherwise, you’d be better off stumping up the additional £30 for the Samsung Series 3.

Review: The ultimate Chromebook challenge
Source: Reg Hardware English
Has Google cracked the Chromebook second time around? Just about. Clearly you need to be in the market specifically for a cheap and smallish machine for day-to-day web surfing and some light media consumption, but assuming you are then both of these machines do a good job and the price is certainly right. In a nutshell, then, the Samsung is the purer Chromebook, but the Acer is the better cheap laptop.

Well, you might just prefer having a familiar laptop experience, complete with keyboard and trackpad, and if you're already living the Google life with Docs, Calendar, Gmail, Hangouts, Google+ and more, you'll immediately feel at home as soon as you sign into a Chromebook. And that's fine. If that's you, we think you should consider one. Basically, then, we like the idea of a Chromebook; we just don't particularly like this Chromebook. At least, we don't particularly like the Acer C7 Chromebook as a Chromebook.

Versatile, rugged and surprisingly stylish, the Acer C7 Chromebook is an amazing achievement for £199, especially as 100GB of cloud storage costs half the price of this Chromebook via rivals. It gets the basics right - decent screen, usable keyboard and has all the inputs and outputs you need when on the go. The Chromebook OS is still struggling for apps and, really, that's the only downside to an otherwise polished performer that shows little signs of compromise for the budget price tag.

I wanted to really dislike this experience, and in many ways it was compromised. But much of that is just a matter of having to live in the browser. Right now, on my MBP I have three browser windows with around two dozen tabs open. I have VLC open for playing some videos while I work, OpenOffice for reading documents that don't get along with Google Docs or TextEdit, Lightroom, Twitter, Scrivener about a dozen TextEdit windows, and Spotify.

Still, we can see people taking the plunge and buying the Acer C7 simply because it packs so much in for so little. It costs £194 - £30 less than the Samsung - and thanks to its sizeable hard disk and Chrome OS’s offline capabilities, it could be all the laptop many people need. For anyone requiring a machine for basic computing and browsing the web, it’s a bargain.

Although the Chromebook concept is a partial success, there are too many fundamental errors with Acer's C7 laptop for it to score well. It might well be a budget purchase, but the screen has a poor viewing angle, battery life isn't great and the keyboard is hit and miss for typing - all of key importance to a device such as this, and all short of the acceptable threshold in each case. There's also no 3G option for on-the-go connectivity.

To be fair, the C7 has advantages as well. The Samsung is equipped with only 16GB flash storage to the C7’s 320GB HDD. Both come with the aforementioned 100GB of Google Drive space. The C7 also holds a one-port USB advantage over the Samsung, but it’s worth mentioning that one of the two USB ports on the Samsung is a 3.0. Rounding things out, the Samsung has Bluetooth and the Acer does not. The Samsung is simply a better computer and it’s worth the $50 price premium.

The Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2847) is the most affordable of the three Chromebooks currently on the market, and the first to hit the $200 price point that Google has been aiming for since the concept was announced in 2011. In terms of cheap, reliable, and functional Internet access, the Acer C7 Chromebook is serviceable, with the largest hard drive of the bunch. Whether or not it has a better feature set than the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook depends upon what features you want, picking up VGA and Ethernet connectivity, but dropping the USB 3.0, Bluetooth, and optional 3G offered by the Samsung Series 3. With a thick and heavy design and short battery life, the Acer C7 Chromebook isn't quite as slick as the Samsung Series 3, but the larger drive and cheaper price will grab plenty of attention, and entice a lot of people to buy.

Acer’s C7 Chromebook is a stunning value. The only major sacrifice a buyer has to make is accepting the Chrome OS, which is becoming easier over time. Chrome OS is now capable of performing all the basic tasks the average user requires and many apps can be used offline. It’s a shame, then, that portability is exactly where the C7 falls short.

The Acer C7 Chromebook has an extremely tempting price, but it's not the best Google-powered laptop out there. This machine does have some advantages over the latest Samsung Chromebook, including a roomier hard drive (320GB versus just 16GB), more and easier-to-access ports, and a slightly faster CPU. However, we would much rather own the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook.

A year ago it was tough to recommend buying a Chromebook. With prices starting at $450, it was hard to explain why you’d buy a laptop that only runs a web browser when you could spend the same amount or less on a notebook with a more versatile operating system... and which could also run Chrome as an app.

Chrome OS on the cheap, but at what cost?
Source: Engadget English
Whether you're interested in cloud-based computing on a budget or you're just curious about Chrome OS, there's never been a more affordable selection of Chromebooks. Acer's $199 system certainly wins on price, but it looks and feels extremely cheap. It offers a fast processor along with Ethernet and VGA connectivity, but at the expense of a glossy screen, poor keyboard layout and lackluster battery life.

Acer has succeeded in boiling out all the high-end features that make a notebook cost more than $400 and took Google’s Chrome OS to just about as standard and basically acceptable place as they possibly could, tagging it with a very suitable $199 pricetag. If you only want to browse the web with your notebook, and that’s it, this machine will serve you well.

Though it doesn't have the same claim on affordability that the previous $200 C7 Chromebook had, the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055) is still less expensive than almost any Windows laptop, and now offers better performance and battery life. With twice the RAM and a larger battery, the Chromebook (C710-2055) offers improvements in both overall performance and battery life, making it an all-around better option than the previous C7 Chromebook. Among the inexpensive Chromebooks we've reviewed, it's the one to beat, offering better performance, a solid feature set, and a healthy mix of local and cloud storage, and is our Editors' Choice for Chromebooks.

There’s nothing wrong with the Acer C710-2457 Chromebook, other than its being as unremarkable as nearly every other Chromebook now available. Low prices don’t seem to be the answer, given that HP’s Pavilion Chromebook, which sports a 14-inch display, is a strong seller even though it costs about $100 more. Maybe if a few more vendors stuck their necks out to improve the user experience, they’d find more willing buyers.

Acer C720-2800 Chromebook

If a user is in the market for an 11 inch Chromebook, the Acer Aspire C720 Chromebook with extremely budget friendly price is a pretty good. Unfortunately, Acer created a machine that fails when judged by its cover. It looks and feels as cheap as it is, or even cheaper. There are better designed machines in the same price range out there, but they are not as powerful as the Acer Aspire C720 Chromebook. The audio quality is expectedly dismal, but there is a USB 3.0 port, which most of the competition lacks.

The 1366 x 768 TN display with washed out colors and limited viewing angles is poor compared to the competition. Weighing in at 1.25 kg, it is slightly heavier than other similar devices. Its 720p webcam is a pleasant highlight, but again, the user experience suffers with a keyboard that could have benefitted from a better layout. However, the Acer Aspire C720 Chromebook really shines inside. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core Intel Celeron 2955U processor and a rather staggering (for its class) 4 GB of RAM. With this hardware, it does perform very well and the Haswell architecture gives it an outstanding battery life of up to 8.5 hours of moderate to heavy use, which is about 2.5 hours more than the competition. Those looking for a budget friendly Chromebook and can get over the sulky exterior and display, will get a machine with performance and battery life like no other.

Back to basics. While efforts continue to try and rework the Chromebook equation to provide a more enticing balance of performance and build quality, Acer sees no harm in sticking to the original plan, with a budget plastic case design, an understated appearance, and an x86 chipset—all for $249.

When we found the Acer C720 while writing our Budget Notebook Roundup earlier this month, we were initially very impressed with both its build quality and low price. After reviewing it more in-depth, we feel that the Acer C720 Chromebook does everything it’s meant to do well, especially for the price, and makes for an excellent second machine for users with more high-end application needs. It also can make a good primary computer for those who only need minimalist capabilities such as web browsing, video chatting and document editing. While not for everyone, if ChromeOS is the right fit for one’s computing needs, the C720 is a handy little machine to run it on.

While the rival HP Chromebook 11 is more attractive, with a white exterior and IPS screen, when put on the spot we'd go for the Acer C720. Why? Those handy extra ports. The simple addition of HDMI and, particularly, an SD reader makes all the difference, giving this simple cloud-based laptop the flexibility it needs to compete with the big boys. And given its £200 price tag, it really is an alternative to splashing out on a 'proper' machine.

For £200, the Acer C720 Chromebook gets a great deal right. We like the minimalist, understated design, the zippy performance, range of connectivity and the great battery life. But there are still plenty of reasons why this is not yet the ultimate Chromebook. The screen fails to impress, the keyboard is cramped and we are not the biggest fan of the touchpad, either. If you can accept some of the limitations and buy into the idea of cloud-based computing, the C720 is an all-round solid performer well equipped for everyday tasks. You'd be hard pressed to find a laptop at this price that performs as well.

The C720’s 11.6in display has a 1,366x768 resolution, but now it has a matt not glossy finish, which significantly reduces the amount of reflections that appear onscreen when you’re outside or in a brightly lit office. The screen’s overall brightness is still dim, but we could see the screen clearly from a variety of angles thanks to wide viewing angles. There’s also a generous amount of screen tilt as well, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a comfortable working angle. Admittedly, Chrome OS’s offline support still needs a little work, but it’s hard to complain when the C720 is such a bargain. If all you need is a no-nonsense laptop where you can get online easily and take with you on the move, the C720 could be for you. It wins a Budget Buy award.

One key criterion we like to use in evaluating a product is whether we'd actually want to use it day-to-day. The Acer C720 Chromebook has many faults and limitations, but even taking all of those into account, it's something we definitely would want to use, for the price. The key downsides we noted, including the display, the keyboard, and the speakers, really don't matter for casual use. They would get annoying if this were your one and only PC, and we don't recommend the Acer C720, or any Chromebook, for that matter, as someone's main machine. It's as a computing sidekick that the C720 shines, a laptop that you can flip open at a moments notice, even if you haven't charged it in a while.

When it comes to internet companies, Google is one of the best companies in the business. Their search engine unbeatable, and it’s unlikely to be challenged by anyone in the near future. However, the same can’t be said of its Chrome OS project. In an attempt to take on Microsoft, it has created an OS, which is not even half as usable as second grade distros of Linux. Needless to say, it’s very difficult to recommend the Chromebook, because fully-functional Windows 8 laptops are available for a lot cheaper. Finally, if you’re looking for a light-weight companion for productivity and media consumption, Lenovo’s IdeaPad S206 and Acer Aspire One A725 are much better options.

Chromebooks are still a new idea, so it helps a great deal that the C720 has such great pricing. If you are heavily into gaming or need to run specific software for your work, then you can forget about this machine - the lack of serious games is a big disadvantage. But there are a lot of use cases, where the C720 Chromebook makes so much sense. The only complaints we have are the display and the keyboard; the former needs to be replaced and recalibrated, while the keyboard is in need for some serious tactile and build improvement.

That said, if you already have a mobile hotspot like a MiFi Liberate or Verizon JetPack$39.99 at Amazon, the new Acer C720 Chromebook (C720-2800) is a great affordable alternative to a laptop or tablet.

The Acer C720 Chromebook left us a bit torn. With some budget-priced, touch-screen-enabled Windows 8 laptops taking up residence in the high $300s, and the Chromebook competition in the $200-to-$300 range getting hotter, we suddenly find ourselves a bit fussier about Chromebook aesthetics and component quality.

Acer Chromebook C720 Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Acer C720 Chromebook is a speedy, sharp Chrome OS laptop that has a simple design and boasting rights in the performance department. The laptop is a step ahead of many other competing Chromebooks, and is more than able to hold its own as an everyday laptop for those who do basic tasks: media, email, Internet, chatting, word processing, and such. The price point holds steady at $249 USD, meaning though you’re getting a performance boost via the use of Haswell, you’re not paying out more than what you’d spend for other Chromebooks.

If you've decided you want a Chromebook, the Acer Chromebook C720 is worth a look. Sure it's not as good looking as the also new HP Chromebook 11, but it's faster and has longer battery life than most competing models, including HP's. That makes the Acer appealing to first time Chromebook buyers who are accustomed to faster hardware on PC platforms and to more experienced Chromebook users who tend to hit hard with lots of open tabs and multitasking.

It works in much the same way and the biggest problem it had at first launch of not being able to work offline is now overcome although there are currently less options than with other Android offerings.

As a wallet friendly machine for browsing the internet and getting some work done the Acer C720p Chromebook is a great choice. The touchscreen really adds a nice upgrade to an already attractive package, and if you can live within the internet world of Chrome OS, then at this price you can’t go wrong.

Having recently told you about an Acer Chromebook this has more or less exactly the same specifications but it also has Touch. While touch on a Windows 8 PC gives far more and Touch on an Android or iOS Phone is normal touch on a Chromebook is new. So now the $64,000 question is it worth another £100 to have touch. With plenty of splinters to prove the point I sit on the fence.

The Acer C720p Chromebook isn’t as pretty as the Google Chromebook Pixel or even the HP Chromebook 11. But it’s one of the fastest Chrome OS laptops around. It’s the cheapest model with a touchscreen. And it gets all-day battery life (assuming you count your day as a work-day with a lunch break). That means you might be able to leave the moderately bulky power adapter at home.

80% Acer C720P Chromebook review Is a Chromebook touchscreen worth $100?
Source: Techradar English
As an affordable laptop, the Acer C720P Chromebook has a lot to offer: A thin and light design, an excellent keyboard and touchpad, and impressively endurance. As a Chromebook, however, the C720P fails to justify its above-average price tag. The gimmicky touchscreen bumps the cost up to $300, without adding real value to the system. The HP Chromebook 11, by comparison, provides an almost flawless Chrome OS experience without a touchscreen. And if you absolutely must have a touch-sensitive display, the Asus X102BA offers a much more satisfying touchscreen experience for $50 less.

There's no way to look at the C720P-2600 and not say it's simply a white washed C720 in "moonlight white." The original C720P was a more than competent and popular Chomebook option with a bit of touchscreen functionality to add the point and pick navigation option. The Acer C720P-2600 Chromebook will be available for a starting price of $299 (about £182/AUS $332) in early January.

Chromebooks on the whole have to make certain sacrifices to keep the price tag low and usually it’s the screen quality and power that suffers the most. With the C720P, Acer manages to address these issues and while we probably can’t expect a full HD display anytime soon, the one on the C720P is really not bad at all. Combine that with the zippy Intel Haswell power, touted battery life and surprisingly attractive design, this is a sign that the Chromebook is going in the right direction.

As with the previous model, the C720P has excellent battery life. When using it for near-constant browsing and occasional music, we pulled in over 6 hours, and when used carefully (reduced display brightness and such), you can get it over the 7 hour mark. In summary, it is small, light, and inexpensive, three markers that make it appeal to many varieties of users.

Acer's C720P is essentially the same C720 Chromebook but with a touchscreen based display. Thanks to their low pricing, this puts it only slightly more expensive than competing Chromebooks but with more local storage on it and touch. It would have been nice to see a design update but that would have likely increased the overall cost which is critical to many consumers.

Acer C720P-29552G03aii Chromebook

The Acer C720P-29552G03aii Chromebook is one of the many underdogs in today’s world of gadgets and devices. Chrome OS is probably the main contributor to this. Chrome OS is still very new when compared to the big dogs of gadget OS. However, it provides decent usage for those who only use it for checking emails and browsing the net. The Acer Chromebook comes with an Intel Celeron processor with 1.4 GHz processing speed. With 2GB of RAM and an integrated Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail), do not expect this machine to be a powerhouse.

The touchscreen display is a neat feature which enables it to be a substitute for tablets, but that depends on the user. The 11.6 inch display comes with a 1366 by 768 pixel dimension, which is pretty decent for its class. It provides clear displays for pictures and streaming HD videos. The light weight of the Acer Chromebook, 1.3 kg, is also a plus point.

It comes with the basic connectivity capabilities such as the dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 and is Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. It does not support data connectivity such as 3G and 4G LTE, however. Due to its thin size, it comes with only two USB ports; one USB 3.0 on one side, and one USB 2.0 on the other side. In short, the Acer Chromebook is not a flashy laptop with over the edge technology or stunningly beautiful display. Its processing abilities are nevertheless surprising.

The Acer C720 Chromebook with Core i3 is one of the most powerful Chromebooks to date, but it’s not a perfect laptop. The limited screen viewing angles can be frustrating, and some folks would also probably prefer a model with a larger, or higher-resolution display. It’s easier to overlook the Chromebook’s limitations when the price is right: the Acer C720 with an Intel Celeron processor can be yours for as little as $200.

Acer has gone and greatly improved the performance of the Chromebook by using a Core i3 processor with additional RAM which is great but they could have done so much more than what they did. The imrpvoements were only for the processor and little else which means that the design looks no different from the Celeron C720 and all the issues from that still remain except the price has jumped significantly.

The Acer C720 Chromebook is brimming with features and has appeal for the power Chrome OS user. It's noticeably faster than Celeron-powered Chromebooks and may satisfy those who need a bit more power. However, at $379.99, it's one of the most expensive Chromebooks we're reviewed, though well short of the $1,500 Google Chromebook Pixel. The extra power is welcome, but general users working in Google Docs or simply surfing the Web may not notice the speed bump unless they add lots of extensions to Chrome and expect 20 open tabs to still respond quickly. The HP Chromebook 11 (Verizon LTE) is still our Editors' Choice for Chromebooks with cellular wireless capability and a better IPS screen at a list price that's almost $100 less.
