Acer Chromebook 11.6 – 2GB Ram – 16GB SSD 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.
It Supports Flash!!!! 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.Pros:- 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 chattingCons:- 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.)
Great for what it is 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.
