It's in this budget price bracket that Chrome OS's particular appeals shine through. Sure, the Spin 311 isn't incredibly slim and can't run proper Windows apps, but it's got a great keyboard, lasts for ample time, and delivers enough across the board for its asking price.

If you want something with a bigger tank, the larger Acer Chromebook 314 might be a better choice. However, the compact nature of the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 makes it an ideal smaller device for those who are looking for something that you can basically use one-handed.

Chromebooks have been a Windows alternative for a while and dependant on the tasks you want to carry out can be all you need. Certainly you would not get a Windows touch panel unit for anywhere near the price of this Chromebook offering.
