All told, the Acer Chromebook 15 is an intriguing anomaly. On the one hand, its big IPS display is simply great to look at, especially when you'll be doing so for extended periods of time. It makes composing anything of length easier and watching multimedia content more enjoyable.

People who love ChromeOS, but don’t want to pay over $1,200 for the Pixel, should look at the Acer Chromebook 15 with the Intel Core i3 processor. If you like the idea of a large system, but don’t want to pay over $400, then take a look at the cheaper version with an Intel Celeron 3205U Broadwell processor, the next generation after the Haswell in the popular HP Chromebook 14 and Acer C720 Chromebook.
