A tough student laptop: Acer Chromebook 11

Acer’s new Chromebook 11 is a tough student laptop that goes online almost anywhere.

Five reasons:

Cheap: 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. Acer’s Chromebook 11 C732  goes on sale in April with prices starting at €329 (around £290, $405, or AU$505).

Display : The display looks very bright,  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.

Speed: Chromebook 11 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.

Battery life: With a battery life of up to 14-hours, your device is designed to stay at your side for the entirety of the day.

Google Play: Get access to more than 2 million Android apps from Google Play to learn and do more.
