Reviews for the Acer Chromebook AC700-1099

40% Acer AC700 Chromebook review
Source: Techradar English
While the operating system for many is well ahead of its time, the Acer AC700 is a step into the past. When there's so much on offer elsewhere, from netbooks to tablets, you don't have to spend any more to buy a better device.

60% Acer's AC700 Chromebook: Better than a Windows Netbook?
Source: Bright Hub English
If it were running any operating system besides Chrome OS, this laptop would be excellent. It's thin, lightweight, and features a large keyboard. While it may be boring to look at, its price of $349.99 would negate aesthetic concerns for many users. Unfortunately, the operating system handicaps this laptop.

AC700-1099 Chromebook Review: Cut to the Bone
Source: PC Perspective English
Obviously, I’m not able to provide the Chromebook with any recommendation at this time. I do have hope, however, if only because Google tends to refine its products through constant revision and reiteration. Hopefully Google Chrome OS will see its functionality expanded and refined over the course of the next year. Until then, you shouldn't pay to become part of this experiment.

Acer AC700 Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
I do think the Chrome OS approach of doing more and more online and in the browser is the future we’ll move towards, for some that may already be the case, but for many it’s still too early. Plus, with all the security scares we’ve had of late in which companies have had servers hacked and data stolen, it might scare some people to move literally everything they do to the cloud and store all of their information online. But if you’re just interested in the Acer AC700 as a cheap companion device to your larger sized computers, I think it’s a great buy and also just plain neat for those that are interested in new technologies and approaches to computing.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N570: Dual core Atom processor with a slightly higher clock rate than the Atom N550 and therefore still slower than the CULV processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
