Acer CB3-111

The Acer CB3-111 is one of the many available Chromebooks available in the market recently. Just like all other Chromebooks, it offers simplicity and has a good looking chassis as well. The white case looks good and neat but feels slightly cheap when touched. However, it is good enough at this price point, seems well assembled and is very compact.

The buying point for the Acer CB3-111 is definitely its portability. It weights at just 109 g and is 1.78 cm dick. Its 11.6 inch display has a resolution of 1366 x 768, which falls into the low cost laptop category these days. The screens is also not very good when used outdoors due to low brightness levels.

The hardware powering this device is an Intel Celeron N2830 Dual Core 2.16 GHz processor, 2 GB DDR3 RAM, 16 GB of SSD storage and an Integrated Intel HD graphics card. Acer has taken this simple approach from other Chromebook brands such as Samsung and Dell. Like any other compact laptop, the Acer CB3-111 is definitely limited in terms of IO ports. It only comes with 1 USB 2.0 port and 1 USB 3.0 port.

Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz high-speed wireless LAN is also available on this laptop. The Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111 has a 36 Wh battery which is average in this category. Like all other Chromebooks, it is a simple and functional notebook offering ultra-portability in a cloud based computing solution.

Consider this Chromebook if you just want a simple laptop for basic Web tasks, and only if you area already within (or considering using) Google’s ecosystem of products. If you’re not into Google services, then this laptop isn’t for you. The Chromebook 11 is part of a Chrome OS ramp-up for Acer. It also released a couple of other Chrome-based computers: the Chromebook 13 and the Chromebox CX1.

I wanted to love the Acer Chromebook C740. It's solidly built, with just a bit of style and flash, but its low-end specs are reminiscent of a laptop you would have purchased five years ago. That was par for the course for Chromebooks even just a year ago, but the category has advanced far since then. Although it may seem unfair to compare the C740 to the Google Chromebook Pixel, which is more than $700 (£450, AU$950) pricier than the Acer model, it's important for you to see the full spectrum of what the Chromebook line is capable of accomplishing. Yes, the C740 is a Chromebook, as is the Pixel.

The Acer Chromebook R11's minimalist design may not be the sexiest, but that exterior hides a deceptively capable machine that'll last all day. Oh, and it can flip 360-degrees into a tablet. No big deal.

Source: Talk Android English
All in all, the Chromebook R11 is a beautiful budget Chromebook with only a few shortcomings. If you can get over some of the stuttering and frame rate drops on web pages, the Chromebook R11 might just be the perfect compact and portable laptop for you to pick up this season. The Dev Channel is probably something you should stay away from. Android apps on Chrome OS is a great idea, but in testing, it’s obvious that it has a long way to go. Hopefully as Chrome becomes more intertwined with the Play Store, performance when using Android apps on Chrome OS will get better. The Chromebook R11 with 32GB has an MSRP of $280, but you can grab it from Amazon for around $270.

While the Chromebook R11 feels very solid and only weighs 1.25kg, the 360 degree hinge and touchscreen are gimmicks. If the price could have been reduced and the overall laptop made slightly lighter with a better trackpad, the Acer Chromebook R11 would be top of the list for any aspiring Chromebook user. The Acer C730 or the Dell Chromebook 11 are probably better bets unless you really, really need the touchscreen.

The R11 is a decent, if unspectacular device. Having the option to position it in a variety of modes is fun, but the sometimes sluggish performance makes it hard to recommend to anyone who wants to do more than a couple of simultaneous tasks. If your needs are light and you value the flexible hinges though, it’s a nice machine all the same, but we’d still opt to wait for the 4GB alternative.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a neat hybrid design and the price is right, but simpler, non-touch devices offer better value. Competition from Windows 10 machines like the HP Stream 11 have left Chromebooks in an awkward place, but Acer takes the right approach.

Picking a computer can be a hard business, especially when there’s so much stuff out there, but when you’re buying for a specific segment, the task is a little easier. Acer’s Cloudbook 11 isn’t likely to be suited to you or I, and even if you class yourself as someone who only needs a set of keys and a decent battery life, we’d still encourage you to look at what else there is out there.

If you are even considering a Chromebook, you're no doubt aware that it is an Internet- and app-centric device, so preloaded software (in the traditional sense) is non-existent. But you can get an awful lot done with a Chrome browser, a Google Docs account, and the downloads available on the Chrome Web Store.

All things told, though, I like the Acer Chromebook R11. I’ve always been a fan of the Chromebook way of doing things – like most people, my digital life is lived almost entirely in a browser these days – and Acer’s decision to add in a welcome bit of flexibility without sending the price rocketing is hugely welcome.

100% Acer Chromebook R11 review - quality design in a bargain package
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Acer Chromebook R11 is the most attractive and practical budget Chromebook you can buy today. It may not have the power or the screen suitable for the most hardcore multi-taskers, but it's a seriously good piece of kit for the money. Your alternative choice here is the Asus C201 Chromebook, which is a similar 11in device for around £40 less and can last a few more hours away from the mains. However, with that reduction in price you do lose the IPS screen and a bit of processing grunt to boot, so you certainly do get what you pay for.

The Acer Chromebook R 11 is light and offers a colorful display, a comfy keyboard, decent performance and good battery life. We do worry about the machine's build quality due to the flexing lid. Chrome OS just isn't ready for touchscreens, so we can't call the functionality a plus.

Overall, Acer's Chromebook R11 looks, feels, and performs wonderfully. It's a bit smaller than I'd like, but perfect for those who don't want to lug around something with a larger screen. The version that we tested, which comes with 32GB of storage and 4GB of RAM will run you $329.99 directly from Acer, though in my research, I found it for as little as $290, elsewhere. If you're looking for something small, light, and versatile that won't break the bank, you won't go wrong here.

If you're in the market for a small Chromebook, it's hard to argue with Acer's R11. The price certainly hits a sweet spot, and the laptop is a great machine for getting a bit of work done, kicking back for some tunes, and occasionally breaking it out as a tablet replacement. It may not be quite as stylish as the Asus Chromebook Flip, or as rugged as the Dell Chromebook 11, it sits firmly in the middle.

The Acer Chromebook R 11 is an all-around impressive convertible-hybrid Chrome OS system, offering solid construction, speedy components, and a good array of features at a low price. It rates a half-point lower than the Asus Chromebook Flip, our previous top pick, but there is also more competition in the field these days. The extra 2GB of memory and double the local storage, compared with the Asus Chromebook Flip, are welcome additions, as is the extra inch of screen space.

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.

Acer Chromebook 11 N7 C731-C8VE

Chromebooks are gaining momentum as a standard for education technology and the Acer Chromebook 11 is one such Chromebook designed mainly as a solution for classrooms. One might easily second guess its capacity from the Chromebook 11’s average-looking façade. It is nevertheless MIL-STD 810G standard compliant, which affords it with an impact resistant body. This is a significant shift away from earlier Acer Google Chrome machines, which are not known for their ruggedness. However, with this Chromebook 11, student users are assured of more durability as this laptop is able to withstand accidental falls and downward forces. The corner-shield structure and rubber bumper keyboard provide added protection to this Chromebook. Its dimensions measure at 22.9 x 297 x 211mm and it weighs 1.3kg. It is not the lightest or the thinnest laptop around, but its size is good enough for carrying around. Students can slip this device into their bags and carry it about easily. It is fitted with an 11.6" HD (1366 x 768 resolution) 16:9 IPS display. Visuals and images appear clear and the lower resolution doesn’t really impact the experience mainly due to the small screen size. The 180-degree hinge system allows the display panel to lie flat, which makes this laptop ideal for collaboration and discussion.

The C731T models further provides a touchscreen option. Furthermore, it is also decked with a spill resistant keyboard, thus keeping the components safe from inadvertent seepages, something that needs to be adopted as a standard by other manufacturers as well. The touchpad is wide and sensitive. Another feature of the Chromebook 11 N7 is its keyboard design with recessed keys that prevent the key caps from being easily removed. This Chromebook also has a fan-less design that provides cool and quiet operation, while at the same time keeping the profile of this laptop compact and lightweight. This device is powered by the Intel Celeron N3060 processor with Intel HD Graphics 400 graphics adapter and 4GB ram. With these specs, it is sufficient for learning and education purposes. Serious multitasking, on the other hand, might not fare too well. Audio quality is pretty decent and adequately loud. Storage available is 16GB and is expandable via an SD card, something that all Chromebooks have to consider changing. Connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port as well as a 3.5mm combo audio port. Network connectivity is supported by fast dual-band 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. It also comes with a webcam on board. Students are assured of prolonged productivity on this Chromebook as its long battery life is capable of up to 12 hours. It outlasts the performance of its rivals from the likes of Dell and Asus. All in all, this Chromebook is deal for classroom administrators and students who are looking for a rugged laptop with long battery life.

Acer's new Chromebook 11 N7 can deliver the performance, battery life and hardiness needed to get workers through the day. It's available online for $280 (vendor price) -- or $230 (vendor price) with a non-touch screen. Overall, it is a rugged system that isn't priced like one.

The Acer Chromebook 11 N7 earns high marks for its excellent battery life and durable frame. Unfortunately, its screen is on the dim side and the undercarriage gets a little toasty.

The Acer Chromebook R11's minimalist design may not be the sexiest, but that exterior hides a deceptively capable machine that'll last all day. Oh, and it can flip 360-degrees into a tablet. No big deal.

Acer Chromebook 11 (2018) initial review: Blue, budget and potentially brill
Source: Pocket Lint English
We thought the 2017 Acer Chromebook 11 was about as good as things could get around the £200 price point. For just a little more the 2018 model throws in future-proofed USB Type-C ports, a snazzy blue finish and will have Google Play integration from launch.

Acer Chromebook 11 hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
The Chromebook 11 is shaping up to be a great budget choice, with extras like USB-C that we don’t yet take for granted in entry-level machines. Full Android app support is another handy extra, even if performance from that Celeron is still up for debate.

If you need an inexpensive machine for everyday tasks, you can't get much better than this new Acer. The long battery life and zippy performance make it one attractive contender, you're getting plenty of ports, and it doesn't look half bad, either.

Comment

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.
