Reviews for the Acer Chromebook 514 CB514-2H-K3E7

Acer Chromebook Plus 514 hands-on review: on the plus side
Source: Stuff TV English
Even after a short stint with one variant, Google’s higher-end take on the Chromebook formula we’re familiar with looks quite promising. The Acer Chromebook Plus 514 looks the part and has hardware to make ChromeOS feel perfectly responsive for daily duties. While you could pick up quite a few Windows-powered alternatives for similar cash – with many of which also having higher capacity SSDs – ChromeOS is more power efficient. The Chromebook Plus 514 should last longer away from the mains, and cloud syncing means local storage shouldn’t be a stumbling block either. The big question is whether ChromeOS can now fully replace your existing machine, through its combination of browser-based software and Android apps. While older Chromebooks struggled, on account of their more limited hardware, models like the Chromebook Plus 514 should be much more up to the task.

Acer Chromebook 514 review: MediaTek Kompanio 828 strikes a perfect balance
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
It would be easy to look at the Acer Chromebook 514 and shrug it off. I’ll admit I only had a passing interest in it off the bat because I wanted to get my hands on the untested Kompanio 828 inside of it. But as I’ve used it and carried it in my bag for the past few weeks, all the pieces that make up this Chromebook have just impressed me far more than I expected. The superlatives like the keyboard, trackpad and battery life all help to prop up the less-flashy elements like the just-OK screen, plastic chassis, and mid-range performance. And this is exactly why we can’t review a Chromebook just based on a spec sheet. It’s about the entire experience, and Acer’s put together a bit of a surprise with the 514. And at $399 $449 for the model we tested, I’d give anyone looking for an affordable laptop an absolute green light to snag one of these right away.

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.
