There’s no denying that this new Core i3 version of the Acer Chromebook 514 is nice, if a bit expensive. From its stylish design to its high-end performance, it's a premium powerhouse…for a Chromebook. It competes with some of the best in the category, but that category will always have some limits to its appeal, due to the very nature of Chrome OS itself. The slick Chromebook 514 is one of the best there is, but that also makes the competition fierce—and while the Core i3-powered laptop delivers some great performance and battery life, it’s up against the likes of the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook (2021) and the Editors' Choice winner Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (2022). And in that equation, it comes in as a little too pricey and not quite powerful enough to justify that extra expense. Still, if you’re ready to splash out on a fancy Chromebook, it’s a well-made machine that won’t disappoint.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
