This review is from: Acer C710-2833 Chromebook Intel Celeron 2GB Memory 11.6" Chrome OS
Pros: I was a little hesitant to buy this product because I'm not particularly an Acer fan. I did check this out along with the Samsung Chromebook at a physical electronics store and I liked it the best. The build quality is decent, the keyboard feels fine to me. I wouldn't want to write my thesis on it, but it's fine for web surfing. I prefer this form factor over a tablet since I don't have to smudge the screen with fingerprints and I can adjust the screen angle to my taste w/o holding it.. I thought I might have issues adjusting to the Chrome OS, but it really couldn't be any easier. I get about 4 hours of battery life, I'd probably get more if I didn't use it to watch movies. No problems at all with Wi-Fi. Probably my favorite thing about Chrome and this computer -- you're almost instantly online when you turn it on. I also like that it has three USB ports and an HDMI port. Nice!
This would be a great laptop (more of a netbook really) for grandma, the kids or anyone that just wants to surf the web and consume media. If you are looking for something for productivity, Windows compatibility or as a your main computer, this probably isn't for you.
Cons: A 16 GB SSD is tiny, I didn't know they even still existed. This isn't really a problem if you just consume media and surf the web, but if you wanted to store movies or video, you might want to consider the version with a standard HDD. Chrome assumes you want to use the cloud for everything, so I guess the size is a reflection of that.
It has a VGA port?! Come on really? Waste of space.
Pros: Cheap, works, wireless keyboard and mouse
Other Thoughts: Just running a flavor of Linux on this machine. It looks good and works w/o issue.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Inexpensive, works great on my Windows box.
Cons: Tried on two different Macs, it simply won't work. There is no documentation for the Mac at all. And no support on their website.READ FULL REVIEW
