80% Acer Chromebook 13 review: Acer’s new Chromebook comes with a larger, full-HD display
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
Acer knows how to make good, solid, reliable Chromebooks, and this model is no exception. Performance was always decent, the screen size is a welcome addition, and the long battery life makes it a great option for travelling. It’s just a shame that the display panel doesn’t quite match up to that of the Toshiba Chromebook 2, which is similarly priced but does offer a richer experience. If you can accept the screen though, the Acer Chromebook 13 is a very nice machine that will get the job done.

But should it be on every shopper's short list? Frankly, we opened the box expecting the Acer Chromebook 13—with its big 1080p screen and cutting-edge CPU/GPU—to set a new standard for affordable Chromebooks, and we're a little disappointed that it didn't. It's a solid contender, one we enjoyed keeping in our briefcase for days and using for hours at a time, but it loses points for its pale display and merely adequate benchmark performance.

Living with Acer's Chromebook 13: The good and the bad
Source: Computerworld.com English Archive.org version
So should you buy it? If you're set on a 13-in. Chromebook, the choice basically comes down to this or the $300 first-gen Toshiba Chromebook. The Haswell-based Toshiba has superior performance but worse build quality and a lower resolution (though similar in quality) display. Ultimately, each system has its own strengths and weaknesses; which is better is really just a question of which qualities matter more to you.

The Acer Chromebook 13 is the first Nvidia-powered Chrome OS device we've seen, but it won't be the last. HP and others have similar designs coming soon, and with the growth of popularity in Chromebooks overall, there's a chance this won't always be an Intel-dominated category.

Nvidia is looking to challenge Intel in the Chromebook market, and it's off to a solid start with the Acer Chromebook 13. While not as powerful as Core i3-powered Chromebooks, this $300 laptop benefits from a sharp 1080p display, a comfy keyboard and enough endurance to last the day. It's also wrapped in an attractive -- if smudge-prone -- chassis. That's a real bargain.

Acer Chromebook 13 FHD Review
Source: Slashgear English Archive.org version
The Acer Chromebook 13 FHD is the finest Chromebook on the market today in its price range. The 720p "HD" version will cost you $279 while the 1080p "FHD" version we have here will run you a cool $299 USD. That’s certainly not half bad.

NVIDIA GeForce ULP K1 (Tegra K1 Kepler GPU): In Tegra K1 SoC integrated graphics card based on the Kepler architecture. Features a single SMX with 192 cores and full OpenGL 4.4 support (e.g. with Tessellation).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

K1: System on a Chip (SoC) for smartphones and tablets. Integrates a 4+1 Cortex-A15 CPU as well as a Kepler-based GPU with 192 CUDA cores.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


76.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
