For Acer to take a bunch of standard stuff and put it together in a way that makes a stellar experience is what underlies the beauty of the entire Chromebook experience. Simple hardware, streamlined software, and speedy experiences at low prices. In the landscape of Pixelbooks, it can be easy to forget this nuance. Acer has not and has delivered on all the things that make Chromebooks great.

At the end of the day, the Chromebook 15 isn’t a very good computer. But it’s at least an okay Chromebook, and due to its unique size, there will likely always be a place for it somewhere in the pantheon of Chromebooks, even if it’s ultimately still somewhat underpowered.

With its aluminum skin, bright full HD touch screen, and comfy keyboard, the latest Acer Chromebook 15 makes a surprisingly strong argument for ditching a Windows laptop and going Chrome. The Pentium CPU holds back performance but enables impressive battery life.

Acer's aluminum-clad Chromebook 15 packs spectacular battery life along with a sprawling 15.6-inch screen, but it's not very bright.
