3 out of 5 eggsmixed

Pros: fast, inexpensive, great battery life

Cons: won't autoconnect to wifi unless I broadcast ssid. won't connect to bluetooth mouse. acer tech support does not have any info on mice that will work.

Other Thoughts: bought this because asus chromebox was backordered. my mistake. i wanted the wired lan and extra usb ports on the chromebox. why can't acer just build or recommend a mouse that works. my tablet, win laptop and desktop easily connect to my lan. this chromebook seems like a step backwards.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop Replacement

Pros: Runs incredibly fast (the 7 second boot-up time boast is no joke), nice and light, incredible battery life. This thing lasts me an entire day of classes and work (9:30am to 10:00pm) with no problems. I was also able to install Ubuntu parallel to the chrome OS with no issues whatsoever thanks to the Intel chipset.

Cons: The keyboard is not very good. It takes some getting used to. Not a huge issue, but the only reason I didn't give this machine 5/5.

Other Thoughts: The only reason not to get a chromebook is if you're heavily reliant on Microsoft Office. Even then, google docs is a great alternative.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent bang for the buck.

Pros: Cheap, lightweight, long battery life,Haswell Celeron feels up to the job, no problem streaming Netflix or HBO Go.

The Chrome App selection is very good and I never really feel limited in what I can do with it.

Cons: Cheap, take care when lifting up the screen. The hinges seem really sturdy but there is some flex on the back side of the screen. Not a deal breaker and no eggs deducted for it. Hey, it's $219.00!

Other Thoughts: I bought this to have a an extra computer at home and to use for work. The offline apps are basic but all I need. Works great at home, the shop and the library. The one time I needed to get online in the middle of nowhere was not a problem. Just made my phone a mobile hot spot and got right to work. Works great for simple presentations too.

This is just so much more useful than a tablet for what I do and yes, I owned an iPad.

4 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Super light, looks good, 8hr battery life, webcam is good, sound is pretty good, fast, awesome price, etc.
It has been a dream to bring this to classes after my old 7lb Toshiba. A DREAM.

Cons: There are only two cons that are worth stating (i.e. not obvious ones based on facts about it being a chromebook or small or whatever): one is that the speakers being on the bottom mean you pretty much always want to use headphones, because it's going to typically be a bit muffled. That's not a big deal though.

The main thing is that it produces this high-pitched ringing a lot of the time (though sometimes it goes away) whether it's plugged in or not. I have really sensitive ears and I'm a bit ocd so I always notice it and it bothers the hell out of me. It's an easy fix though - I just put on headphones and listen to music from google play since you get a free 100 GB CLOUD SPACE. awesome.

Other Thoughts: This is an awesome buy. I am glad I did it.
