Product Description

Acer C710-2834 Chrome book comes with these high level specs: Intel Celeron Processor 1007U, Google Chrome Operating System, 11.6" HD Widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit Display, Mobile Intel NM70 Express Chipset, Intel HD Graphics with 128MB of dedicated system memory, 2048MB DDR3 Memory, 16GB SSD Drive, 2-in-1 Digital Media Card Reader, 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, Built-In HD Webcam, 3 - USB 2.0 Ports, 1 - HDMI Port, 1 - Ethernet Port, 4-cell Li-ion Battery (2500 mAh), Up to 4-hours Battery Life, 3.05 lbs. | 1.38 kg (system unit only)


Chromebooks are a unique class of mobile computing devices, designed specifically for Web-based tasks. They differ from traditional laptops in a few important ways:

Chromebooks run Web-based apps, not traditional PC applications.
Chromebooks are designed to be connected to the Internet. You can create documents and spreadsheets or edit photos on a Chromebook using Google apps designed for these purposes. The Chrome operating system will not load and run traditional PC software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. However, files created in these applications can be viewed and edited using Google apps on your Chromebook or cloud-based applications like Microsoft's Office web apps.

You store your files in the Cloud, not on the machine.
To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google's Cloud-based storage service). Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there's an Internet connection. If you know you'll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.

Continually updated, always new, the Acer C7 Chromebook keeps getting better and better. It starts in seconds, has virus protection built in, and runs your favorite Google apps plus thousands more. At about an inch thin and 3 lbs. light, this Chromebook goes wherever you go and keeps your files safe and secure in the cloud.

I only purchased this a week ago, but I find this an amazing piece of machinery. I am astounded how fast the internet is on this and I like Google Chrome. I switched over from IE because I was getting tired of the constant error messages and having it close all the time. I'm glad I did, it's easier to use and very stable. I have an Acer Netbook from two years ago that is great, but slowing down even with 2 GB of Ram. I decided to use that as my "Windows" laptop and use this Chromebook for web-surfing. I even use the trackpad because it is the best I have ever used. It works perfectly, and I have come across some really bad trackpads in my day. I know that this is not for everyone but if you have a main desktop or laptop and want a supplemental computer for really fast web-surfing, this is the way to go. You won't be disappointed.

I bought this as a side machine to be an in-between for my heavy IBM laptop, and my iOS iPad. I have always loved the Chrome browser (have used since day 1,) so this seemed a logical choice. And the fact that I could play my facebook Flash games on it (can't do that on ipad!) I got this from a groupon, so I didn't pay $200 for it. But after having it a week, I would have. It is a great toy.

- Super lightweight
- The apps for it are free!
- Super super quiet
- Doesn't burn my lap like my laptop does (runs very cool.)
- Has a nice soft-touch keyboard
- Has a great trackpad which doesn't have breakable keys on it
- Has a hi-def screen
- Plays flash animations
- Can connect to my iCloud, Google drive, and Amazon kindle library (with free app downloads.)
- Saves documents, etc. to Google cloud drive so I can grab them on my normal computer as well
- Has memory card reader and USB ports
- Has a camera for web chatting

- Battery life averages about an hour, which can be a hassle
- Some newer flash items won't load and it says the flash player is outdated, but Chrome insists it's up-to-date and you can't manually update it
- Can't use the machine unless you're on the Internet via wifi or LAN
- You have to tap with two fingers on the trackpad to do a mouse right-click
- Sound isn't fantastic
- Has camera but can't Skype. My family doesn't use Google Hangouts to chat
- There are great apps, but not as many as I'd hoped. I'm sure this will change in time.

Honestly, the cons may seem big but they're far outweighed by the awesomeness of the pros. Especially Flash. As an iPhone and iPad user, I have missed flash greatly on my portables. This is a great feature and was really the selling point (and the price.)

Wanted a light weight laptop form factor device for browsing web and doing email, research and most anything else you can think of that is Internet/WEB based. Also have access to Google Docs so can create documents/spreadsheets or open Microsoft docs. Cannot edit Microsoft documents though. Works just as expected. Fast startup and browsing. Has both 2.4 and 5gig wireless support. Only has 16 GB SSD drive so somewhat limited for storage. May or may not be a problem depending on your use. If you don't care about warranty, you can break open and change the SSD to something bigger. In my case I had a 120GB SSD laying around so I replaced the 16GB with it. I was wanting to dual boot Linux on it so figured the larger drive would be better.

Con: Only issue that I have right now is with bluetooth support. Only recently did they provide a version of Chrome OS for this device that supports bluetooth, hardware was there just not usable. Support currently is primarily for keyboards and mice and limited for bluetooth speakers/headphones. I have a Jawbone Minijambox that it sees but will not pair with. Audio bluetooth support is a work in progress right now. I am currently running the latest beta code. Still will not pair. Have also tried the developer version and that did not pair either

Note to folks that are thinking of getting one of these.
You will see a number of negative reviews, not just for this Chromebook but others as well. If you read them, folks were expecting a cheap laptop that would do everything a Windows or MAC laptop would do. That is not the case. Think of a more along the lines of a tablet with a bigger screen, more memory and storage and a physical keyboard. If this is what you are wanting then this is a good device. IF you are looking for a cheap laptop, no matter what Chromebook you buy, you will be disappointed.

I bought this as an extra computer to have around the house. The biggest weakness is the inability to print unless your using a google cloudprint enabled printer. If you want to have an extra computer for the kids or guests to use, one that can't get messed up (no viruses, no settings to change), and you only want to spend $200 this is a good product.

Great for the price but there are some catches. I bought this laptop so I could bring it to school and leave my windows machine at home. I have been pleasantly surprised. Despite only having 2 gigs of ram and a celeron processor this thing really zips around between tasks. It boots up in like 5 seconds. The screen looks good enough. If you do most of your work through Google services even if the laptop breaks your files will still be there waiting for you along with your emails and bookmarks. I am satisfied with it but there are problems that may be a deal breaker for some.
Cons: 1 - this pissed me off and I don't understand it. Only a very select few of printers will work with this machine. You have to use Google Cloud Print and it makes sense for businesses but for home use it's impractical. Google needs to step up and create drivers for our printers so we can just plug them into the usb and go
2 - Although it has a Solid State Drive there is at least one moving part which is the fan that blows on the processor. I assumed that there would be no fan for such a low powered processor but I was wrong. On one occasion the machine did get very hot on the left side.
3 - I had problems getting the chromebook to display on my TV through vga and hdmi. This problem may have to do with my TV that doesn't support many resolutions.
4 - This is the most annoying problem. There is some kind of grounding problem in the laptop. When the battery runs low the trackpad becomes very very difficult to use. It's so inaccurate it's just infuriating. The only "solution" I've seen to this problem is to touch the vga port while using the trackpad and this fixes the ground problem but this problem shouldn't exist.

Overall if these cons don't bother you it is well worth it's price at $199
