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.

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.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

847:
Ultra Low Voltage Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Celeron brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
