Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 CP514-3H-R2D2
Source: Trusted Reviews
The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 looks to be a very reasonably priced laptop that would work well for anyone who is currently in school or after a simple productivity device. While not as high end as the Chromebook Spin 714, it should be more than capable of browsing the web, sending emails and writing up documents. Other than my issue with Netflix – which I assume will be ironed out before the product’s official release – I liked the screen and felt that it gave me a crisp and clear image while I was watching YouTube. I do hope that Acer can remedy the flimsy chassis as it may put people off using this as a portable and hybrid working device, which is supposed to be its primary use case.
