90% Acer Chromebook 14 (Luxury Gold) Review
Source: Computer Shopper English
All told, the Acer Chromebook 14 delivers a superb mix of portability, usability, and high-end appeal at a terrific price. Yes, the CPU is less powerful than what others offer, but for social-media shenanigans, light work in Google Docs, and Web-based play, with this Chromebook we’re supremely happy with the long battery life and cost savings we get in exchange.

Gold Acer Chromebook 14 Review
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
The standard pricing of $299 is already a steal, but it can be found discounted and refurbished left and right. For that amount of money, I simply can’t recommend this Chromebook enough. From a holistic experience standpoint, Acer has nailed it: possibly creating 2016’s best overall Chromebook experience.
