Reviews for the Acer Chromebook 11 CB5-132T-C8KL

100% Acer Chromebook R11 review - quality design in a bargain package
Source: Expert Reviews English
If you decide that Chrome OS isn't for you, after all, Acer's Aspire One Cloudbook 14 is just as inexpensive as the Chromebook R11 but is a fully-fledged Windows 10 laptop. As such you likely won't have to adapt the way you use your laptop quite as much but with 32GB of storage, and even less than that after you consider the space taken by Windows 10, you've still got the same reliance on cloud storage unless you add in an SD card for storage.

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.

1.3 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.


100%: This notebook model is regarded by the reviewers to be exceptionally good. There hardly exist laptops, which are rated so good. If this rating can be taken seriously, this is a clear recommendation for purchase.
