80% Acer Chromebook 13 review: Acer’s new Chromebook comes with a larger, full-HD display
Source: PC Advisor English
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
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
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.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

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.
