It’s not particularly compact and connectivity is weak, yet the Acer Chromebook 14 delivers strong battery life, sharp visuals and impressive usability for a respectably low price.

Acer mostly succeeded with the Chromebook 14. It’s slim, light, and affordable. What’s not to love? Even the design makes you question if there’s some type of catch. The aluminum allow body is stunning and luxurious. You’re getting a surprising deal at $299 as that price generally gets you to a plastic body with a recycled design. But, for as much as we can applaud Acer’s Chromebook 14 for its design, we have to point out the display’s shortcomings. If the screen you look at for hours at a time is very important to you, you’ll need to continue shopping. However, it’s not an awful display. You just expect something better for the price.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: 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.
