I'm a bit of a geek, so I've been interested in trying out a Chromebook, and finally decided to get one when I saw that a Windows program I use a lot, ("Scrivener" for writing stories) would run on a Chromebook if I install a chrome app, called "Crossover". I'm happy to report that the Chromebook works fine, and that Scrivener runs quite well on it.
The ACER Chromebook is at the cheaper end of the range, and lacks a touchscreen, which I do not mind. I assume that you all know that Chromebooks run the Google Chrome operating system (not Windows or Apple - tho there is an app, 'Crossover' that can permit some Windows programs to run in a sandbox on the Chromebook). It was unexpected that the keyboard lacks a 'Delete' key (tho Alt+Backspace works instead), and there's no 'Caps Lock' key (which I think is great). Scrolling on the ACER Chromebook involves using a two-fingered drag on the touchpad, another thing that took some discovering.
But overall the device is great. It's got a large 14" screen, high resolution, pretty good sound, it's light, and looks very nice, in brushed metal. The battery lasts a long time. It does most of the things I want it to do. I'm impressed, and pleased with the purchase.
The Acer Chromebook 14 has everything you’d expect and then gives you more. For one thing, it’s completely encased in aluminium alloy, then you get a bigger 14-inch anti-glare Full HD screen, up to 12 hours of battery life and enhanced wireless speeds. The integrated webcam will allow you to make video calls.
