I am so glad I got this! It’s fast!

Really great computer, super fast with lots of storage. The screen and image quality are amazing and I'd definitely recommend this computer to anyone plus excellent service.

Just last week I was bemoaning my 10 year old laptop which is a dinosaur and so slow! So imagine my glee when I was offered this Acer Chromebook 15 laptop to review! So first off, of course it's WAY BETTER than my old laptop, so I won't compare it to that, I'll compare it to my relatively new work laptop which is an HP.

I lifted this Acer laptop out of the box, it's fairly light, and plugged it in - and immediately the WELCOM page came up and then it was just a matter of following the prompts and logging into my Google account! I am not tech savvy AT ALL, so this was immediately reassuring. It will take me time to discover all the joys of this new laptop - I know I will love the touch-screen and I'll get used to the touch-pad "tap" instead of "click". Anyway, I feel I'm in the 21st Century for sure.

And the PRICE! Well, it's half of what I paid for my old laptop 10 years ago! That's the way technology goes, "better, faster, cheaper"!

So, my first encoun ter with a chromebook was a few years ago. I was not pleased by the smaller size keyboard that my hands could not adjust to. Other than that, though, I didn't really have any issues with it. Upon considering this purchase, I went back and forth between this and a tablet combo form another maker. I had a few friends discourage me from the chromebook, suggesting that it was too limiting. However, given my needs, I don't see any limitations at all. I use it for emailing, streaming subscriptions, composing in googledocs, updating my websites, and of course, shopping on amazon. It allows me to do everything my old laptop did. But this is faster, sleeker, and the touchscreen, I suppose is an added feature for some, but I find that I don't really use it. Anyway, I'm very satisfied with this product, and, if that changes over time, I will update this review.

This can do almost everything my PC does. The SSD drive loads everything a lot faster than my PC. True, it the hard drive is only 32GB, but I was able to add a 256GB MicroSD Card for storage. The manual doesn't mention a size limit for the SD card, so if 256GB isn't enough for your storage needs, you can go higher than that.

After a bit of fidgeting, I figured out how to save files on the SD card instead of the internal hard drive or Google Drive. Yes, the purchase of this Chromebook gives you an additional 100GB on Google Drive. However, I'm old enough (in my 60's) that I don't trust the Cloud. The default setting saves your files to the Cloud, but it's fairly simple to change that setting Just click on the clock (lower right side of the screen) >the Settings wheel >Downloads. You can either set it to save in a specific location every time or ask you where to save the file. I chose the later, just because I have several different folders for downloading files. Another thing I like is that there's an app that mimics MS Word, so I can save files from my PC to the Chromebook using Bluetooth.

I use the File App (a blue circle with a picture of a file folder inside the circle) to open files and determine how much free space I have remaining on the hard drive, USB drives and my SD card. You can also use the File App to create new folders (for instance, creating a new folder for every year in the Photo Folder, then creating a new folder for each month in each year's folder).

The one thing that bothers me about the Chromebook is that I can't put icons for the various apps on the desktop (like I do on my PC -- I called Acer's tech support and asked). I can put them at the bottom of the screen -- Chromebook calls it the Shelf. There are two ways to add your favorite and most used icons on the Shelf:
* Drag and drop, or
* Right-click on the app with your mouse and click app icon, then click "Pin to Shelf." To find all your apps, click the small circle on the lower left of the screen, then click the caret (^). All the apps you've got on the computer will show up there.

The reason I don't like not being able to use the desktop to store my favorite icons is that I have more than will just fit in a single row on the Shelf. I also don't care much for the keyboard, but that's because I prefer my keyboard to have more of an audible click to it. It makes it easier for me to touch type. However, I didn't ding the stars for that because I know other people will prefer a more silent keyboard, especially when there are other people in the room watching tv while you're computing.

The battery life depends on how you're using the Chromebook. When watching videos, it lasts about 6 hours. If I've got the Chromebook in standby mode (like my PC going to sleep), it will last about 12 hours.

This is my second chrome note laptop. Golly I love it. everything a computer should be. Fast, saves your works . password saver and google docs. Easy up dates do not crash your computer!
Since I had an older version chromebook , after I logged , the new machine talked to the great cloud in the sky and loaded everything I needed from my old lap top. No more long transfer problems.
I use it mainly for shopping and business and vacations.
It does have usb ports, so I can hook up my track ball. I do not like the small pad

if you have not made the switch, trust me you will be happy--- you will need a google account to make it work.

I had a Chromebook years and years ago while I was in school and it was a great basic computer. I will say they've come a long way since then. This one boasts a fantastic touchscreen and a really cool feature of being able to lay flat which is great for collaborative projects. I'm also impressed with how much more useful this laptop is from an entertainment standpoint. The two up facing speakers make a noticeable difference in the sound. My last Chromebook the sound was pretty pathetic but this one sounds legit. It's perfect for streaming or even light gaming. The keyboard feels good too. Overall for the price this is a fantastic laptop.

Their is very little to dislike about this item.
It has a great physical presence, being an above average looking book.
Internally, it has above average components allowing you to do everything expected.
We've had no problems and nothing but good experiences with it.
