Reviews for the Acer C710-2457
Source: PC World Archive.org version
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.

While the new Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2457) gets dinged for the loss of the larger hard drive and the shorter life of the smaller battery, it does have one of the lowest prices of any of the available Chromebooks. For a product that's all about affordability and making the Internet available to all, even that $20 to $50 price difference is worth a lot, but the previous Acer C7 model remains the Editors' Choice due to its longer battery life and larger hard drive.
