Amazon has a ton of Chromebooks, and I was about to buy the Chromebook 11 from last year, then found an article that was 1 day old saying that Acer had just released their new 2016 version of the 2 GB Chromebook 11. They explained that this one was built to be quite durable with an aluminum lid, and that it would feature an IPS screen, for only $179. They said a 4 GB version was bound to be released soon, and I wish it were available, but I figured 2 GB is adequate for my needs. I followed the link to Amazon, and found it here.
Build quality – It is not as tightly put together as say a tablet or a high end laptop, but it feels very well made. The screen articulates well and the lid feels sturdy. The keyboard has a nice feel to it, much better than my Logitech for my iPad, and I’d say just about as good as any laptop I’ve used. It does have a strip of plastic between the track-pad and the space bard which is somewhat flimsy, though, and when I press down with moderate pressure, the whole middle of the keyboard flexes. Overall, though, I am impressed, especially for $179. Haven't dropped it yet, but I think it would survive.
Ergonomics – The keyboard feels like a full size; the volume and power buttons are in a good place, and the keyboard is comfortable to type on. The trackpad is larger than I’m used to and even the fastest setting doesn’t feel fast enough for me as I usually have to lift my finger off the trackpad to get from one side of the screen to the other. I like the “no buttons” choice of the trackpad though, and how the whole pad just clicks down if you feel you need a click. The SIZE and WEIGHT are incredible! I guess most chrome books are this way, but I am amazed. It feels lightweight but not cheap. The keys are not backlit. Webcam is stationary, and I doubt I will ever use this with Facetime on the ipad / iphone so simple and easy. Maybe they could do a version without this and drop another $20?
Display – The display looks very bright, crisp; just what you’d expect from an IPS screen. Now if I can only manage to stop poking it with my touch-screen trained fingers, I expect it to last. The fact that it is not a touch-screen makes this feel more like a laptop to me.
Color – It looks good in white casing with black keys (kind of like a piano), but white would not be my first choice due to the inevitability to show dirt and oil after a while. Also the exterior it textured, which feels cool, but will probably attract more dirt that way.
Sound -- Volume is pretty loud. Not sure the decibels, but is is louder than an laptop, phone, or tablet I've had. I was surprised to hear what sounded like stereo Left and Right sound coming from a video, when I looked on the bottom and noticed it had two speakers. Only realistic improvement would be if they could have mounted the speakers on the front instead of the bottom. I could imagine it getting muffled if on a blanket or other soft surface. But the sound exceeded my expectations for the price for sure.
Software – having no background in Chrome OS, I find this software simple and easy to understand. You can’t really screw it up. Somewhat disappointed with the app store. Does not seem like a lot of high quality apps to pick from, but that is coming from an apple user (and previously android). UPDATE: the "OK Google" feature which allows voice searches and commands was not working. I spent an hour on a help chat with google, and they couldn't determine the problem, but finally asked me to "Powerwash" the machine, essentially wiping it and returning it back to factory state. It took about 2 minutes to powerwash and set it up again, and the "OK Google" feature miraculously worked again. I have had no other OS issues.
Speed – The computer starts almost as instantly as a phone. Clicking on anything gives no lag. It is snappy, and I think it will stay that way. Youtube streams beautifully. Webpages load fast. If they had had the 4 GB version, I would have considered it, but 2 GB is not too slow for me right now.
Value – Can’t believe it was only $179. Great job Acer, and great job Amazon for getting it to me in a day and a half with Prime.
I will make sure to update as I use it more, and if my opinion changes.
I have to say the battery life is also one of the most remarkable aspects of this device. I always see to it that it's fully charged before I head off to a day at the library, but even after spending LITERALLY all day at a library, working non stop on the computer and even doing data-heavy operations that should hit the battery pretty hard, I can still count on leaving the library at the end of the day with a good 3-6 HOURS of battery life still showing. I've taken to not even bothering to pack my charger anymore - it's unnecessary. No more worrying about finding a spot in the library or coffee shop that is close to a charger, which is remarkably freeing.
I'm SOLD on Chromebooks, I think if my big huge laptop ever dies I'll just replace it with one of these. For years I thought I HAD to have a windows laptop because of my need for word processing, excel, etc, but when I bought this I started using Google docs and have fallen in love with that completely. I love that no matter where or on what device I sign into my Google account my documents are there, waiting on me.
