-You get 1 year of office free for this laptop and that's a nice deal. Also, 1tb of Onedrive storage. If you have a Microsoft Account then you can access Onedrive.
-Don't expect to play any games on this laptop. You can run some Facebook games and very old 3D graphic intensive games also. Don't expect to play Minecraft on this, trust me you will not be happy. This is great for Basic use such as E-mail, web browsing on chrome, office suite, itunes, web games. Did I mention this thing is SUPER LIGHT?! I did, didn't I?
**The only thing is that you have to Optimize it before you can use it!
Optimizing it gives it better performance in the long run and can make it faster/save space. It does only have 2gbs of RAM and 64gb of storage anyway.
-First thing I did was uninstall some acer programs
-Update the drivers using Driver Booster (Search Driver booster) You can update for FREE
-Then I ran Systemcare 9 (Google Systemcare 9) ALSO FREE
-After running those and completing the tasks, I rebooted
-After it rebooted, I went to startup (CTRL+ALT+DELETE -> Click task manager ->Startup tab) disabled onedrive since I don't use, and google updates. Don't disable synaptics or realtek audio.
-I then proceeded to uninstall some Apps that came with Windows 10 that I didn't use. (This step isn't necessary but it does free up some space)
-After that I installed Classic Shell, because I don't like the windows 10 start.
All of that took about an 1:30 minutes. This computer is very fast now and I suspect it will last me more than a few semesters.
Overall this is a bargain for portability and performing basic use. For a college student like me, I can't go wrong with it!
I would recommend this pc as long as you understand ONE THING: you need to be okay that this is not the fastest pc out there and that you are paying for what you get, and what you get is a pc that performs admirably considering the specs it has.
One last tip, if you do get this pc the first thing I would do is uninstall McAfee and install AVG free. The reason is McAfee uses an insane amount of processing power to run.
However, I believed that if I optimize it, this Acer Cloudbook could become effective and one of my favorite portable gadgets. I’m glad to report that I was correct, it’s working for me, and later I’ll detail what I did to make it more functional.
I’ve been using it for about a week, and I can say in all honesty that I like it a lot. Of course, this is after I spent a whole afternoon uninstalling and disabling all the applications and services that were unnecessary to me. And some apps that I might use in the future I simply turned off from running in the background.
Among the features I like the most about this Acer Cloudbook, is that is lightweight and thin. Its 14" screen is great to work with, and it has a decent keyboard and Touchpad. It comes with an excellent wireless IEEE 802.11ac/Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth adapter, a SD card reader, 3.0 and 2.0 USB ports (one of each, respectively), and a HDMI port. A huge plus is a long-life battery and the charger, which is also lightweight. Truly portable.
It doesn’t come with a SSD, but an eMMD. In other words, the NAND flash memory chip in the embedded eMMD of this Acer Cloudbook is not as fast as a SSD. The issue is that because of this eMMD Drive, the ReadyBoost function is disabled by Windows 10 by default. Hence, not an option to increase the available RAM anymore. There are ways to tweak the registry to force ReadyBoost to work, but in all honesty, it's better to just remove or disable all the apps that we won't be using, in order to utilize most of the system resources for the apps that we will be utilizing frequently.
Because the eMMD is akin to a SSD, be sure that defragmentation is disabled and turn off drive indexing in Windows. These processes won't benefit a eMMD, but wear it down with unnecessary read/writes.
Also, the optimizing process might strength the security and privacy concerns many of us have with Windows 10. For instance, there is an app called App connector, that all it does is to access our Location, Camera, Contacts, Calendar and any other data available to supposedly make our uses of Microsoft services easier. The fact is, uninstalling this App connector, doesn’t make any difference in the quality of the interaction with Microsoft servers. So, it’s gone. I disabled Cortana too. I don’t like it or need such assistance. The way to disable it is to set to Off all its setting and/or never set it up in the first place. Remember that there are privacy settings related to Cortana that must be cleared too. It’s a personal thing, if you like it, feel free to use it, of course.
There are many ways to optimize a computer, (this is the method I prefer):
First, I suggest to make a Recovery Drive before doing any change in order to have a backup of the original setup (the operating system, apps and drivers). A thumb drive or a SD Card larger than 8 GB is necessary for the Recovery Drive to be created. I used this Samsung 16GB EVO Class 10 Micro SDHC with Adapter up to 48MB/s (MB-MP16DA/AM) And when the recovery drive was created, 7.51 GB were used. To make the Recovery Drive, open the Acer Care Center app, click on the Recovery Management link on the left column and once there, from the tabs on the left top of the screen choose Backup. Next click on the ‘Get Started’ button, at the right of Create Factory Recovery Backup. The creation of this Recovery Drive took more than two hours, so you know.
Second, turn on the Airplane Mode by selecting the Network icon on the taskbar, and clicking Airplane mode. Which is one of my favorite options in Windows 10 and on Android. If one doesn’t need the Internet, is better to have the PC offline and this feature allows a quick on/off Wi-Fi connection. I suggest not to connect to the Internet until the cleaning of apps and service disabling is over. Being offline makes the whole process easy and faster.
Third, click on Settings and the Privacy tab. There are many settings in this Privacy menu, some are a personal choice, others would require a too long explanation to include in this review. However, there are some that are diminishing the performance of the Acer Cloudbook. How? Well, most of these settings deal with apps sending and receiving data, mostly sharing our locations, habits, and other information. For optimizing purposes, at least, the apps running in the background should be turned off, unless that app must be running all the time.
Remember that these changes can be reverted any time you feel like.
Next, click on Settings, and choose System and select Apps and features, to check the multiple preinstalled apps, and decide which ones you would like to keep and use. To uninstall an app click on its name and a popup window will give you the option to uninstall it.
Another way to save system resources is to disable those services that are not in use. Some of these services comes running as Automatic or Manual (only when needed) But there is no point in having a Wired Autoconfig service on, if there is not an Ethernet adapter in the machine. This is only an example of services that can be disabled. But this will take a lot of time, because each service must be disabled manually and one must know what is doing. There are many tutorials online about how to do this, if you want to learn more about it. I’m mentioning here, so you know there is another way to increase the Acer Cloudbook performance. Also, there are apps that use too many services at the same time. For instance, the included McAfee security app, had sixteen services running while in use. I have my own security app that I trust and that it uses less resources, so I uninstalled the McAfee and installed my own.
So, most of the apps included were gone by the time I was done ‘optimizing’ it, and replaced by the programs I use for productivity. I’ve been continuing the work I started at my desktop and my laptop in this Acer Cloudbook. To keep uniformity in those proposals, estimates and budgets, I open the files directly from my WD My Passport 2TB Portable External USB 3.0 Hard Drive Storage Black (WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN) connected to the Acer Cloudbook 3.0 USB port. And so far, this Acer Cloudbook has helped me produce my job as efficiently as the more expensive computers I work with, do. So, if you’re willing to invest a few hours optimizing it, I say, go ahead and get it.
