Reviews for the Acer Chromebook 514 CB514-1W-P0Y5
Source: Trusted Reviews
The Acer Chromebook 514 is a decent mid-range Chromebook. For the price, you’re getting some good looks, a great selection of ports and some beefy performance compared to other Chromebooks out there. However, its battery life is disappointing, which is something to watch out for if want to work on the go.

Up to a point, the Chromebook CB514-1W rewrites the rules for mid-range Chromebooks. It’s cheap, it looks good, it has excellent connectivity and it’s more than fast enough for most purposes, while the screen is one of the best I’ve seen for under £500. It’s only battery life that disappoints, so the decision over whether to buy one or not comes down to priorities. If you need a slimmer, lighter, more versatile Chromebook for use primarily on the move, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 edges ahead, but if you’re looking for a balance of price, performance and great usability, the CB514-1W is the best mid-range Chromebook of the moment.
