There are not any software packages to install or maintain, hard drives to de-fragment or virus software subscriptions to update or to bog-down or interfere with applications. It all just works! No more having to bug your family or neighborhood IT Guru and no more trips to Best Buy that cost as much as this single machine on a service invoice from the Geek Squad.
If you have a 3g/4g phone that you can tether it to, buy the WiFi only model and save $100. Acer AC700-1099 Chromebook (Wi-Fi)
While both the Acer and Samsung are great machines, it's worth the extra $50 for the extra 1/2 inch of display. (And I think the battery is a little stronger in the Samsung too.) Samsung Series 5 Wi-Fi 12.1-Inch Chromebook (Black)
It's the last "technology" change you'll ever have to go through! And you'll actually be happy you did.
The reason I love this Acer is primarily the boot times and battery life. If you close the lid the laptop automatically enters standby and can remain in this state for a few days without a charge. When opening the lid the laptop is ready to go in less than a second. I also noticed my other 2 Netbooks occasionally have problems connecting via wireless when coming out of standby or occasionally hang while this Netbook has never needed to be rebooted.
The display is excellent with great brightness control. It has a little glare in full sunlight but the screen is still usable by turning up the brightness.
If you have an alternative Netbook from Dell or Toshiba you may also notice all the keys are smaller. Acer compromised. The Acer keyboard is missing function keys (you don't need them anywhere on this machine), a delete key, CAPS LOCK and Windows key. By removing these keys Acer was able to give us a full size keyboard with standard size keys. (For those of you who are older and remember the old IBM keyboards.. this keyboard feels more clicky which I love).
I will also note the integration in Google apps is really impressive. The webcam works right out of the box with gTalk or Gmail's webcam app. When uploading and downloading files it connects directly to Google Docs (as well as a local storage folder if you need it). It also supports memory sticks with drag-and-drop support between the local machine and Google Docs / GDrive.
What is it? In short, it's a cloud computer. If most of your work is done online (as mine is) or you're looking for a device to connect to the internet, freeing up your primary computer for someone else to use, this is nearly perfect. What I needed was a small device with a true keyboard that could get me online when I needed to be, and the AC700 delivers exactly that.
What is it not? It's not a computer. If you're expecting Windows, MacOS, or Linux, do not buy any Chromebook. You will be frustrated, you will be angry, and you will sound like you did no research on the unit when you review it. If you need a computer to run programs or games, like Photoshop or SWToR, you need a computer, not a cloud client.
All said and done, my AC700 does exactly what I expected it to, and I could be happier with it.
