Reviews for the Acer Chromebook 315 CB315-4HT
Source: PC Mag
The Acer Chromebook 315 is an affordable and competent machine, but it’s so readily beaten by competitors like the cheaper Lenovo 5i Chromebook, or discounted Windows machines, that we see little reason to recommend it over what's already in our buying guide to the best Chromebooks. While the Chromebook 315 isn't a complete letdown in everyday use, it will likely start to show its age much sooner than rivals. Instead, look to the Lenovo 5i Chromebook for a Chrome laptop that nails the basics and then some for less than $500—or even Acer's own 500 series of Chromebooks for a bit more cash.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
