First - the refurb seems to be pretty good. It works just fine, and no noticeable scratches or dings. A+ on that.
Now to the company, etc - I received it quickly with everything I needed to fire it up immediately. A+ there too.
To the product - It's a little small for the eyes of an old(er) man, but I can zoom quickly, so I can live with it. The same thing that makes it a little rough on the eyes makes it a dream to carry/lift. It's sitting next to my 15.6" Acer. It feels like it weighs less than half that. Pretty sweet. The battery has never been an issue for me either. The instant startup is awesome, I must say. They say it takes 7 seconds. It's never taken more than 4. Compare that to my Acer at 30 seconds plus, and then I have to wait for it to find the wifi - I find myself picking up the chromebook more and more. Storage can be interesting. Photos still go on my "real" computer as that has the space. I'm not paying extra for cloud storage, so that's what I'll have to do for now. Also, I'm not a big gamer anymore so I'll be okay without the latest edition of "Knights of the Old Republiic". The audio is about what you'd expect. Meh. Bluetooth works like a charm though. Finally, the keyboard layout is a little... compressed. Again, you get used to it.
And finally the software - It's my first time using Chrome OS and was pretty intuitive and speedy, especially if you're used to other OS's AND have a google account. I've had no problems at all with speed on Netflix, youtube, etc, and it works great with my Chromecast. One weird thing is that even setting the mouse at full speed, it moves slower than on my Windows computer. You get used to it, but I could see it bugging someone who was playing a speed-click game. Google works just fine for docs, spreadsheets, etc.

As an appreciator of the Mac OS and a "disliker" of Android, I first encountered the Chrome OS when I won a Kindle Fire from a grocery store. I liked it and found it more intuitive than I expected, and much less clunky than my Blackberry Playbook tablet. However, the Kindle Fire, even with a keyboard attachment, presented some issues to using it more as a computer. Following good Chrome OS experience with the Fire, I saw this Acer C720-2827 on a deal of the day site refurbished and took a shot. To begin with, I needed something to replace a very aging Mac notebook that was one full OS behind and could no longer be updated that I used primarily as in Internet/WiFi radio and for checking sports scores and miscellaneous browsing at bedside. My concern was that the Acer, not being able to run iTunes, would not be ideal, but there are workarounds that make it fine. Apps such as TuneIn Radio, Stitcher, and a few others allow you to receive pretty much everything you would like from around the world of BBC, NPR, jazz stations, etc. For stored music, I used an SD card to port over a few gigs of music and put them into playlists. Wireless antenna/reception is excellent with this unit. Bluetooth sets up and pairs easily. Browsing is fast, and if you have a Google/Chrome account all of your bookmarks come over from your main computer, which is very handy. It is extremely light, very intuitive. There is an MS Word apps that lets you do Word docs (you must have a Microsoft account or Bing account), along with Google docs which play very well with MS documents. Screen resolution is fine and it is extremely easy and portable. It does everything I need and I now have something I can take on trips or to do work at a coffee shop that is very good, light, reasonably full-featured. Battery life is remarkably good.Read more ›

This is a great laptop for travel, or even at home for quickly checking e-mail etc. It's (very) cheap, light, easy to use, and boots + shuts down very fast. It does not run windows, and if you want to add a more traditional OS your only option is linux (as far as I know), so be aware of that when you purchase this product, or any other chromebook.

I use this laptop for work all the time, it's great for taking notes and looking up information online. I also use it frequently to connect to other machines via a terminal or via a remote desktop client from wherever I happen to be at the moment. The battery lasts ~8 hours when using a terminal or a google doc and about 4-5 hours that when streaming videos, which is good enough for me. The bonus 100GB Google drive storage and 12 in-flight internet passes should be useful as well, although I didn't have the chance to try them yet.

In summary; I'm very happy with this chromebook, it does exactly what I bought it for at a price/performance ratio that is the best I have ever experienced for a laptop. I bought it refurbished but it arrived pretty much brand new.

Chromebooks are not for everyone but let me tell you, it serves its purpose with my family. If you're online most of the time using Chrome this thing is perfect. Bought a second one for my non-English speaking Father and he has loved it from day one. He came from a Windows machine that was constantly getting bogged down with crap that he downloaded from the internet - this stopped all of that.
