If you know how to use a browser, then you know how to use a Chromebook!
This Chromebook is small on size but big on usability with its 11.6" HD Widescreen CineCrystal™ LED-backlit Display and full-size Chrome OS keyboard. The silver matte finish with high-gloss black decorative edge and simplified design make this device stylish and easy-to-use.

Not only is the Acer Chromebook stunning to look at, it's also easy to use. If you know how to use a browser, then you know how to use Chrome OS. There is nothing to install, and there are no applications to manage because everything is on the web.

Every time you turn it on, the Chromebook upgrades itself to latest features and fixes, with no nagging updates! It also syncs your favorite themes, extensions, bookmarks, and apps across Chrome. The bottom line is that your Chromebook will always have the latest version. No update discs required.

Security Built-in Automatically

Chrome3G _image_C
Chromebooks are designed to keep your computer secure and protected against bad things like malware and viruses, automatically, so you don’t have to worry about it!
Worried about safety and security? Fear not. The Chromebook is actually a lot safer to use than an ordinary computer. It's designed to keep your browser secure and protected against the bad things, like malware, that are out there on the web.

Every time you boot your Chromebook, it does a self check called a "verified boot." If it detects that your computer or OS has been tampered with or corrupted, the operating system is typically restored automatically from a known good backup. And if a backup is unavailable on your computer, you can download one yourself from the cloud.  Best of all: your Chromebook does all this on its own so you don't have to worry about it.

And all I used it for was the Internet!
Pamela R. Merritt
It powers on from total shut-down in the time that it takes most computers to wake from sleep, and wakes from sleep as soon as you open the lid.

I can honestly say it has no 'nasty habits' and I have not got frustrated with it, not even once, since I have had it.

I wasn't put off by all the negative media hype about the Chromebook because people who often vaunt themselves as computer 'experts' on the internet are sometimes only on the internet giving advice because they can't get a proper job in I.T.!
Anyway I bought one and I wanted the Acer with 3G and HDMI output so I can stream AL-Jazeera in HD on You Tube.
I have had my Acer Chromebook 3G for less than a month now and it never disappoints, it can do 99% of all the things an all-singing all-dancing PC can do but without all the hassle on constant updates and antivirus warnings you get on a standard PC.
I can stream tracks from my favourite spotify substitute, do all my banking, use Google Maps, upload photos to Google + (and facebook), it does all kinds of browserey things and if you get bored of all that and you think you're man enough you can flick the 'developper' switch and hack around to your heart's content.
Nice solid feel to the keyboard and the new design trackpad is great. Webcam and mic all work fine and it is a responsive, intuitive interface. I can honestly say it has no 'nasty habits' and I have not got frustrated with it, not even once, since I have had it.
Google's proprietory word processing, spreadsheets, draw programs etc. are great, I have uploaded all my documents to Google Documents and it even converts some if they are in a 'foreign' format.
It is a lovely design in a sleek package, I take mine everywhere and it never fails to impress my friends and family.

The Acer 3G Chromebook was purchased for my wife who is 65 years of age. She is not particularly computer literate. It does exactly what it is advertised to do.

The WiFi worked perfectly. There was an initial problem setting up the 3G Verizon data connection for the 100 MB of free data but Verizon was very helpful and got me to a Chromebook Ninja. He who was quickly able to reset the modem and got us connected. To contact a Chromebook Ninja, go to [....] and look for the Ninja tab.

The Chromebook concept makes common sense for most people who are not heavy users of specialized software programs. I am in the legal profession and would use the Chromebook for my computer needs while traveling save for the inability of Google docs to effectively deal with WordPerfect documents. That said, the Chromebook is clearly more cost effective than anything Apple produces. All in all, Chromebooks are the wave of the future; that is, they are very easy to learn and use and since everything is stored in the cloud they are safe and trouble free.

I returned by Chromebook after a couple days of testing. This is a great concept, but I think the hardware is too wimpy. The Chromebook crashed numerous times when I tried to access ESPN3, and it struggled with Google Reader. Other sites were a bit laggy, but tolerable. The notion of a light, fast netbook for browsing is terrific, but next time the hardware need to be more robust. I have no doubt this is the future of computing, but it is surely not the present.

I couldn't be more pleased with my Chromebook. Like any tool, this one is adapted for certain uses. With the low cost and incredible portability, I feel this is a device of the future!

As a writer and blogger, I wanted a power tool that would let me write more books like this one, Cat 911: Fixing their Care. I wanted a portable work environment that I could take anywhere; the couch, the bedroom, my lunch hour at work and waiting for my friends in the restaurant. I get as much writing done as I do because I've learned to maximise my time, writing.

I think the Chromebook is getting undeserved poor reviews. It's a laptop that runs only a browser. Once I realized that's all I used my old laptop for... I wanted one.

I chose the Acer because of its high marks for the screen and keyboard. I agree. It's highly portable because of the compact shape, the light weight, and the incredible battery life. I can have internet radio running (sounds good in close quarters) and several tabs open and I'm drafting in one of the apps and editing it on my blog; and I've had this go on for over six hours with very few breaks.

Which is another thing. I have all this going on, and have to be interrupted. I close the lid. When I come back (and it can be an hour or a day) I lift the lid; and pick up right where I left off. Let me be clear: I'm contrasting this with my experience with a previous laptop: heavier, hotter, and with less battery life. And all I used it for was the Internet! Replacing this old model with a Chromebook was an incredible upgrade, at a fourth of the price I would pay for something new.

Oh right... what about a netbook?

While the Chromebook is a great concept that I would like to see pursued further, the main issue with using the internet for all computer functions is the fact that internet is not always available, and 3G coverage is expensive. The description of the item says that verizon provides a free 100 Mb per month contract for two years, yet when I tried to set up the mobile internet, it did not function. After calling Verizon and taking it into a store to get it set up, I learned that this offer had been depreciated a few years ago. In the meantime though, I had the time to mess around with the computer on my home WiFi connection, and I am a huge fan of the almost instantaneous wake and shut-down times. It powers on from total shut-down in the time that it takes most computers to wake from sleep, and wakes from sleep as soon as you open the lid. I would have kept it if it weren't for the fact that the 3G coverage was not possible.
