80% A standout Chrome OS laptop
Source: Expert Reviews English
Acer’s latest stab at the Chromebook game is a bit of a mixed bag. Its metal-clad chassis is excellent, the keyboard is great, and for a sub £200 device, you’re getting superb build quality. The display, however, is a big let-down, as is the lack of SD card slot and limited internal storage allocation.

Finally, the 14 for Work not only has to compete with other Chromebooks, but all portable enterprise devices as well– and there are plenty of equally priced Windows laptops on the market with 1,080p screens and Core i5 processors (and loads of internal storage). In this sea of already-trusted options, a newcomer like the Acer Chromebook 14 for Work may struggle to find a home.

The Acer Chromebook 14 has a 14-inch 1080p HD IPS screen, premium-feeling aluminum construction, a quad-core processor, better-than-average system memory and storage, good connectivity, and a sweet $300 price tag to top it off. Its only drawbacks are a lack of SD card expansion and a slightly stiff keyboard. We think this chromebook is close to the ideal for the category, and a viable alternative to a "traditional" Windows or Mac laptop with a $500 or higher price tag.

Review: Acer Chromebook 14 for Work aims at corporate IT

The Acer Chromebook 14 for Work is part of a new generation of Chromebooks. This isn't a low-end laptop aimed at budget shoppers, nor is it Google's Chromebook Pixel, which originally sold for $1,299 and was designed for people who work in the cloud and want hardware as good as anything Apple produces.

Acer’s Chromebook 14 is about look and feel. The aluminum shell and high-resolution display do a lot to separate it from its lower-cost cousins and give you a better experience. You’re already paying a little more just for those two perks. It’d cost you even more to get better performance and features, but for mainstream users, the Chromebook 14 represents a fairly sweet spot.

The Acer Chromebook 14 could be an unequivocal winner. It has the looks. It has rock solid build quality. It has a satisfactory screen, keyboard, and touchpad. But, intermittent video playback issues, even on the lightweight Chrome OS, holds this Chromebook back. And, that's really too bad, because Acer was so close to downright nailing it.

f you were burned by netbooks or are looking for an excellent second computing device, I’d recommend giving Chromebooks a chance – you may be just as pleasantly surprised as I was. With firmly planted roots, a waning PC market and support for Android apps on the horizon, the Chromebook’s future looks bright. Given its price, it’s hard to go wrong with the Acer Chromebook 14.

I really liked having the extra screen real estate, too. If you can live with not having the best performance for its less than $300 price, put it on your short list.

The $749.99 Acer Chromebook 14 for Work sports some top-of-the-line components, a sexy design that is protected against falls, and IT administration tools that make it an actually viable productivity tool. But although you can get the design and tools for as little as $349, you will have to pay more for the high-end components.

Availability in the UK hasn’t yet been announced, but based on the US price of $249, the Chromebook 14 will cost somewhere in the region of £220 in the UK for the base, non-Full-HD model. Its chances? Pretty good, I’d say. Build quality is solid and if the Full HD screen makes it to the UK, the Chromebook 14 will be one of the best budget Chromebooks out there.

However, users can’t install popular third-party software from Microsoft, Adobe, Apple and others. If you can’t run it in the Chrome browser on a Mac or Windows computer, then it won’t run on a Chromebook. That’s about to change. If you’re reading this after Fall 2016, then you probably can now install Android apps on a Chromebook. This will open ChromeOS to a whole new world of excellent productivity, gaming and entertainment apps. Until that happens, ChromeOS has a narrow appeal to people who can live inside their browser 100% of the time.

Acer Chromebook 14 CP5-471-312N

The Acer Chromebook 14 for Work is a Chromebook for those who mean business. This is apparent as it comes with a solid battery life of 12-hours thereby assuring power users of longer productivity without the need for charging. Acer has certainly put in much effort in securing the robustness of this Chromebook. Acer claims that its chassis "can handle up to 60 kg of downward force and drops from heights of 45 cm". It is also MIL-STD-810G certified, which means it can withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, vibration, rain, sand, and dust. Similar certification is found in commercial business laptops such as Dell’s Latitude series and Toshiba's Toughbook series. In addition, the form factor is appealing with a size of 33.02 x 22.51 x 2.29 cm (13 x 8.9 x 0.9 inch) and a weight of 1.45 kg (3.20 lb). It is crafted beautifully with Vibrant Corning Gorilla Glass encased top covers which in some way makes it look like a Lenovo Thinkpad. With a minimum order, customers may customize their top covers to include their organization’s corporate identity or other stylized graphics. The Acer Chromebook 14 for Work is powered by the latest 6th Gen Intel Core i3 processors, thereby making it one of the fastest Chromebooks in the market. Graphics are rendered by Intel HD Graphics 400 with 8 GB LPDDR3 memory. It also comes with 32 GB flash memory, which isn't much. However, its strong integration with Google's cloud system, 'Google Drive', justifies this number. It is fitted with a 14-inch Full HD display with IPS technology. Equipped with Acer’s Comfyview, its screen minimizes background glare and reflectivity for more comfortable viewing. The 14” display on a 13” chassis is achieved with a narrow bezel design, something that is also seen on Dell's XPS 13 and XPS 15 series. However it is not a touch-screen display. Output to high-resolution displays is made possible via Full USB 3.1 Type-C. With its 88 degree wide angle HD webcam supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR), clearer and more natural images are captured with improved color. The dual-array digital microphone facilitates seamless Google Hangouts. Networking includes both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. The wireless MIMO 2x2 802.11ac allows faster data transfer rates of up to three times. The connectivity includes a USB Type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port and a headphone/microphone jack. There is also an SD card reader for expanding the Chromebook 14's memory. The Acer Chromebook 14 for Work comes with a full-sized, backlit keyboard, which is spill-resistant, as well as a spacious touchpad. Price-wise, it is steeper than average Chromebooks in the market, yet this is justifiable considering its high performance specs. In all, professionals will truly profit from working on Google Chrome’s ecosystem. It is a good choice for people who mean serious business and have very good and stable internet connections at all times as the OS itself depends very much on its connection.

The Acer Chromebook 14 for Work is a Chromebook and some people won’t enjoy using the OS. ChromeOS fans like knowing they aren’t vulnerable to viruses like Windows and even Macs suffer today. The OS is also a simple environment. If a user starts to notice strange behavior, they can quickly erase the computer and start fresh in under 10-15 minutes with all their apps and shortcuts back in place. That can take hours to days on a Windows or Mac computer.

We have some serious issues with the screen, and it's never going to win any prizes for its speed, but we're willing to overlook these based on its exceptionally low price. For just under £200 all-in, you've got a serviceable (if not stunning) everyday machine, which makes it excellent value. If you need to refresh your laptop on a budget, you could do an awful lot worse.

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.

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.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987.
