New to Chromebooks, but becoming a convert. Acer packs value into a small package

I want to give a brief background of where I’m coming from and what I think about the new Acer Chromebook 11. In the past I have owned a Thinkpad laptop, a Dell notebook with a touchscreen and pen, and a couple of tower desktop computers. I have also owned two Android devices. These days I mostly use an Ipad for web browsing and apps, and a desktop for word processing, printing, Microsoft office needs, the occasional game, etc. I needed something at my work that was small and light and did not need a lot of computing power. I didn’t want to spend much money. After hearing about Chromebooks for a while, I did as much research as I could and decided a Chromebook fit the bill.
This is what I came to the future for

I’ve been EXTREMELY impressed by this device. I was initially a little nervous as the system was somewhat glitchy for the first couple of weeks, seemed to be a problem with the Chrome OS because it was fixed by the next update. I previously had an Acer Chromebook c720 which I LOVED–had it for 3 1/2 years and traveled with it all over the world before the keyboard finally died. Here are my favorite things about the R11:
A total convert from a huge laptop

I bought this for grad school, in lieu of using a very large and too-heavy laptop – I needed something more easily portable for running back and forth to libraries and campus. This is my first Chromebook and I have to say I’m QUITE impressed. I remember when they first came out people were complaining about how limiting they are, that they only work when connected to wifi, only work with certain applications, you can’t do this, can’t do that, etc, etc. I have found ZERO limitations, at least in terms of anything I’ve tried to do with it. The speed with which it comes up and is ready to go is astonishing – I’m so accustomed to processors and programs having to all boot up while I drink a cup of coffee waiting on it, this thing is practically always “on” or at least as close to “on” as a computer can get. It’s small and light profile makes it so easy to throw in a bag and go, I’ve even been able to cut back to a smaller book bag because this just takes up less space.
5 stars from a senior citizen.

I purchased my Acer last May 2016. Excellent lap top. I’m 68 years old and it’s easy to use. Fast and light weight, too. . I prefer using my Chromebook vs my iPad. I prefer typing use keys. I have no negatives.
Bye bye Windows!

Well, I have to say, I’m fairly impressed with my new Chrome Flipbook! My trusty Windows 7 laptop was on its last leg and I opted to try something new. It’s a tablet and a laptop and now most of the Android apps work on Chrome. So now you can find just about any functionality that you’re used to in Windows. The only drawback is that it only comes with 32 GB of hard drive. However, it comes with 100 GB of free Google Drive online storage. And you can plug in an SD card or external drive to if you need to. Configuring the printer was a little tricky but not bad. And the Blue Mail email app handles my multiple emails from multiple domains. It’s cheaper than most laptops. AND THE BATTERY LIFE! I’ve used it for 3 days and still haven’t plugged it in!

I spent most of my life using Windows, and the last 4 years using MacOS. I wasn’t really sold on the idea of Chromebooks (“Why would I buy a computer that’s just a browser?”) but after trying one I may never go back. Handling everything online erases all the headaches that usually come with owning a computer. It’s fast, secure, easy to use (even as a tech geek, it’s nice knowing something’s just going to work). I’m a writer, and this has easily become my main computer for both work and play (Google Docs easily replaces Word, and Android apps make it much better for gaming than I originally expected). The touchscreen looks good and is responsive, and the keyboard is nice. The battery life is great (I get about 9 hours). My only complaint is the click on the touchpad feels a little cheap, but I just use “tap to click” so it’s not an issue. Overall I love this machine, and all my computers will probably be Chromebooks in the future.

I can’t review this laptop in technical terms. We just use it for Google Docs (kids’ assignments from school) and to check the internet (email, pinterest, Facebook, slither.io, etc..). And for what we use it, it’s awesome. Very intuitive (maybe not as much as an Apple device), lightweight, you can beat the price. I bought one acer chromebook for us over a year ago and I just bought the same one again for my parents (they are in their seventies). No regrets.

Love it.. It’s so lightweight and holds good battery life! It took some getting used to due to everything requiring internet. Even to make documents… So, if you don’t have wifi, I wouldn’t recommend. Also, the printer issue drove me insane for about an hr trying to hook it up. Being as though this laptop doesn’t offer USB use for printers.. If you aren’t tech savvy, I would suggest you don’t purchase this. If you are tech savvy and just need something for simple use, this thing would be amazing for you.
for what it does its perfect (I’ve had to replace a screen in a tablet …
Got this for my 11 y/o son. He uses Chrombooks at school and has the school google account. So this was a no brainer. He can access his class work at home without having to worry about either an expensive PC or a cheaper (heavy) PC running windows. The thing is really lightweight and he also uses it for browsing, utube and other games/streaming.
Amazing Companion for Students, not so much for gamers/programmers.

This Chromebook is a great purchase for students. Many people look at the specs and think this is a low preforming, sub-par operating system. However that is not the case. I can testify that this Chromebook is faster than any other mid range laptop I have.
