80% Acer Chromebook 315

Having recently told you about a smaller Chromebook, here is something larger that may suit. In fact for those only used to Windows this will not have a lot of differences for you to get used to and if you do not require third party Apps designed for Windows then it may do everything that you require. Also with Windows 7 support ending in January 2020 another reason to change.

60% Acer Chromebook 15 (315) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
A large display might seem a big draw, but unfortunately the panel itself is dull and lifeless unless you have it turned up all the way. The keyboard is the main drawback though, regularly failing to register taps of the space bar and quickly becoming a huge frustration. The CB315 is cheap and that's the main reason to buy it.

60% Acer Chromebook 315
Source: PC Mag English
The Chromebook 315's touch screen is handy, as are its twin USB ports on both sides, and it's priced right. But it doesn't climb from the entry-level ranks to threaten its Editors' Choice sibling—its tepid performance and plastic design won't thrill you, and its display will leave you longing for more color and candlepower. Bargain hunters will be happy, but Chromebook power users will want to set their sights higher.

80% Acer Chromebook 315 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Chromebook 315 is an excellent laptop for the price, capable of completing basic tasks without a hitch. The CPU performance, battery life and keyboard quality are far behind the standard of more expensive laptops, but that's not really an issue if you're sticking to the likes of casual web browsing, video streaming and basic apps.

Comment

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.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon R4 (Stoney Ridge): Integrated graphics adapter of some AMD-A dual-core APUs ("Stoney Ridge"). Based on the GCN architecture, implements 192 shader units and runs at up to 600 MHz depending on the model. The performance can vary heavily depending on the TDP (10-15 Watts for the whole chip).

Intel UHD Graphics 605: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 505, the 605 offers improved display outputs.

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.
