A Chromebook can do a lot of the things that a Microsoft Windows Laptop can do however they normally cost less money. This is a ‘Touch’ version so assuming what you want is available in a Chrome App then this offering may suit your needs.

If the Chromebook 514 were priced lower, the expectations would follow. But, that’s unfortunately not the case. You can get a far more powerful and capable Chromebook for the same price. It’s hard to recommend the 514 over the Chromebook Flip.

Acer Chromebook 514 Review: Stat Sheet Stuffer Disappoints
Source: Chrome Unboxed English version
This was a tough review. I really, really wanted to like this device. I was pre-disposed to cheering on this Chromebook. But after using it for a bit, I am so underwhelmed across the board that it has become a pretty tough sell for me to recommend this device to anyone at these prices. $499 can get you a great Chrome OS experience right now. There are simply too many great devices on offer in this price range to even remotely consider purchasing the Acer 514.

Intel HD Graphics 505: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Pentium N4200: Low power quad-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive notebook. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.5 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Atom generation, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

1.4 kg:

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.

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.

69.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
