Acer Chromebook 13: The best Googletop on the market?
Source: Reg Hardware English Archive.org version
Is the Acer Chromebook 13 the best Chromebook on the market? That's a tough one. I can't claim to have tried them all, but I'll admit I was impressed. So is the 1920 x 1080 version the model to get? For my eyes, the extra pixels make the menu and tab text too small on a 13-inch display. Still, the extra 16GB of storage might come in handy but having a full-depth SD card slot will plug the gap for most people. Also, I didn’t notice any extra benefit from the additional 2GB of RAM, but I suppose it adds a level of future-proofing if you're likely to hang on to it or pass it on.

The Acer Chromebook 13 (CB5-311-T9B0) is definitely notable among its peers, if only for its new processor and larger full HD display, but it doesn't offer a significantly improved experience, and the experience is everything when dealing with Chromebooks. The new CPU may promise better gaming support, but there's not much out there now that takes advantage of it, and the laggy media performance didn't leave us too thrilled. The smaller Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 remains our Editors' Choice, due to its smoother performance and touch screen, but if you want a larger Chromebook with a nice display, the Chromebook 13 is a pretty good bet.

Model:

The Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T9B0 is a slick, lightweight device with decent functionality. The white chassis with black island keyboard represent the look of a standard modern device. Running on the Chrome OS, the Chromebook is packed with an Nvidia Tegra K1 quad-core processor clocked at 2.10 GHz, 2 GB DDR3L SDRAM and Nvidia Kepler graphics with shared memory.

The 13.3 inch Active Matrix TFT Color LCD with FHD resolution delivers good colors and clarity. The Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T9B0 also comes with an internal SSD of 16 GB. Capacity is scarified in order to keep the device light and fast. Users can expand memory capacity with an SD card.

Other features include a HDMI port, webcam and 2 USB 3.0 ports. The total width of the Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T9B0 is 12.9 inch (33 cm) and weighs 3.31 lb (1.5 kg). The Chromebook is powered by a 4-cell lithium-ion battery rated at 3220 mAh, which enables a runtime of 11 hour usage.

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).

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's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


87%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
