This reviewer has been compensated in the form of an Acer Chromebook 15 for this review. All thoughts are my own.
If you have been looking for the perfect gift, the Acer Chromebook 15 is definitely it! I first want to say is
right off the top the most awesome feature for the Acer Chromebook 15 is the beautiful 15.6-inch display.
It is actually 27 percent larger than the 13.3-inch Chromebook we have, actually, I should say larger
than any Chromebook out on the market to date. It comes with a Pentium N4200, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of
eMMC storage, a lot more battery life than other Chromebooks, and you get a 15.6″ 1080p touchscreen
IPS panel. We’ve been using it for my blogging, our basic home use, my kid’s school stuff and we
honestly love it! This large size for the Acer Chromebook increases productivity by giving us “techie
pushers” more gumption to view multiple tabs and apps. Acer continues to be the only Chromebook
provider in the industry with a model that includes a 15.6-inch display.
The large size for the Chromebook 15 also helps accommodate the spacious keyboard and large touch
pad that are smooth, comfortable and I’ll say it again, this awesome device simply maximizes
productivity, I’m so loving that! Navigating is even easier with the fully clickable touch pad featuring click
anywhere functionality, tap, swipe, hold and pinch gestures keeping things simple. Oh but wait, they
certainly have Improved and extended the life usage from previous Chromebooks. The new Acer
Chromebook 15 delivers industry-leading battery life of up to 12 hours on a single charge. This means it
can be used all day long for fun, school, streaming and more.
The Acer Chromebook 15 has a whole new design giving it a modern, sleek and stylish look. I love the
aluminum top cover and palm rest, it’s thinner, lighter, more comfortable to the touch and easier to type
than on the previous models by far. Super cool is It weighs only 3.97 pounds (1.8 kg) and measures only
0.75 inches thin. Because it’s so light and trim you can take the Acer Chromebook 15 anywhere you go.
Another great feature for this magnificent Chromebook 15, is the fanless design allows it to run quietly,
making it great for shared spaces such as a coffee shop, library and family rooms.
To complement the large display, the Acer Chromebook 15 has two full-sized upward-facing speakers
that support high-definition audio, delivering enhanced volume and range that make video play back,
games and media more engaging and captivating. The Chromebook 15 supports Android apps via the
Google Play Store, giving us access to more than two million Android apps for games, messaging,
media, social communication, productivity and so much more.
The HD webcam for the Chromebook 15 has a wide 88-degree field of view to accommodate more participants in video chats. I so love this, when the kids call us video chat, we can actually see them without squinting. Nana, loves she can see the kids full on, and even hear them so well, it really brightens her day! Also, the audio is
super crisp and video remarkably clear thanks to the Chromebook 15’s high dynamic range imaging and
the built-in microphone. It also features a backlit keyboard allowing greater usability in a variety of
lighting environments. Not only does Nana get a good visual on the kiddos she can hear them well and
even see to type and answer their messages.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better than this, The Acer Chromebook 15 keeps us all
connected with fast 802.11ac wireless featuring MIMO technology. You will enjoy fast data transfers of
photos and video with the two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C ports. Talk about fast and productive, the USB
Type-C adapter can also charge the unit, how school is that!! You’re really gonna appreciate the ability to
connect peripherals to the Chromebook 15 via Bluetooth 4.2, two USB 3.0, and a combo
headphone/speakerjack. But that’s not all, the MicroSD card reader supports up to 128 GB MicroSD
cards for transferring and saving files, I’ll say it again, loving it!
The Acer Chromebook 15 is simple to use and ideal for sharing by multiple users, such as families,
schools, it’s great on the job to use for different shifts at a business. This is because the Chromebook 15
gives users the ability to log into their own account to access Gmail, Docs, website bookmarks and other
information. What’s really fabulous is the storage on Google Drive protects files, documents, and photos
safely in the cloud, ensuring the most current version of the file or document is always available and safe even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen. Plus, Acer Chromebook 15 users can view, edit, create and collaborate on-line and off-line with a growing number of programs, such as Microsoft Office documents and Gmail.
As I said a bit earlier, the Acer Chromebook 15, has a Full HD display with 1920×1080 resolution. This
ensures sharp and legible text as well as vivid, clear videos and photos. It also reveals more content on
screen to reduce scrolling. In addition, it has wide viewing angles, so you can comfortably share content
such as video, e-books and games. I have been using the Chromebook 15 for a few of my recent posts,
the kids have been playing their games and even my 94 year old mother-in-law enjoyed doing a little
reading and video chatting with the kids. We have all have found the Acer Chromebook 15 to be not only
rewarding, but also gratifying.
The Acer Chromebook 15 has a great screen, a fast Intel processor, nice hardware, remarkable battery
life, a backlit keyboard, 1920 x 1080 full HD display, upward facing speakers, Intel Pentium processor,
4GB of memory and 32GB of internal storage and so much more. My personal opinion, it certainly is
above and beyond what you would expect to experience in a Chromebook.
The Acer Chromebook 15 MSRP is only $399.99, wow, what a great price!! Best of all they just became
available at Best Buy. I expect these bad boys to sell fast so you better hurry on over to BestBuy.com and grab yours before they are all gone!!
