Reviews for the Acer Chromebook 514 CB514-1HT-C0SJ
The Acer Chromebook 514 is a cheap laptop that is well suited to those who don’t need anything too complicated. It has a comfortable keyboard, large trackpad and a vibrant screen that doesn't cause too much eye strain. You won't be blown away by how it performs but it will do its job reliably. What you should decide is whether Chrome OS will have everything you need, remember there’s some software that you won’t be able to download - like the Adobe Creative Suite. You’ll also want to be sure that you don’t need more when it comes to performance as this laptop won’t be able to cope with very heavy workloads or large games. Long story short, if you’re a student who needs a laptop for writing out essays and watching Netflix then the Acer Chromebook 514 will be fine, and it won’t cost you the earth.

Intel HD Graphics 500: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Celeron N3350: A very energy-efficient dual-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive laptops. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.4 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Celerons, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
