Acer Chromebook 15 Review

If you think “bigger is greater,” enable me to introduce the Acer Chromebook 15. For $399 (£249), the laptop packs a 15.6-inch touchscreen, producing it certainly one of the largest Chromebook models you can get.

Aside from its super-sized screen, it has lenovo x1 carbon 20bt battery wonderful battery life, loud speakers, a backlit keyboard and solid efficiency. One particular or two of these attributes on a price range laptop is superior, but all of them combined makes for a fantastic worth.

The large Acer laptop is usually a strong alternative for the bevy of 13-inch and smaller sized Chromebook models around. Considering that it’s not that a lot more highly-priced than compact Chromebooks, any individual considering an inexpensive laptop with lenovo thinkpad yoga s1 battery replacement/lenovo thinkpad yoga 20cd battery a huge screen should not hesitate to check it out.

Design

First items initially, the Chromebook 15 is large. That is by style. It really is meant to be a major Chromebook for streaming video or hunting at images. This machine is actually a silver, metal slab with lenovo yoga 900 13isk2 battery/yoga 900 13isk battery Acer’s logo in a mirror finish around the left side and the Chrome icon on the left side. When you open the lid, you are going to see the 15.6-inch show surrounded by a thick bezel. The metal deck has speakers above the palm rests on every side of your keyboard.

Most Chromebooks have 11- or 12-inch screens, so it is no surprise that the pa5121u 1brs/toshiba battery pa5121u 1brs Chromebook 15 features a bigger footprint. It’s 14.9 x ten.1 x 0.eight inches and 3.7 pounds, that is notably larger than the Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA (two.6 pounds, 11.9 x eight.three x 0.six inches) and also the Samsung Chromebook Pro (2.4 pounds, 11.06 x eight.7 x 0.six inches).

The Chromebook does not possess a ton of ports, but considering that surface pro 4 charger/microsoft surface pro 4 charger Chromebooks are employed for straightforward net browsing or streaming, you almost certainly never need them. Each side features a USB Type-C port (you are able to charge over either of them) in addition to a USB 3.0 port.

There’s a Kensington lock slot around the left side, although the proper side is home to a microSD card slot along with a headphone jack.

Display

As previously talked about, the dell inspiron 15 7559 charger/dell inspiron 7559 charger screen is based on IPS technologies, which promises wealthy colors and wide viewing angles in comparison with older displays. But the viewing high quality depends on the content material. For example, the backgrounds offered on the Chromebook are beautiful, vibrant, and sharp. The Chrome OS interface is just as quite, with deep blacks and sharp, highly-colorful icons. But when we pulled up our favourite movies on Google Play, colors looked slightly washed out.

Backing the visual clarity is usually a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, a seemingly new typical in Chromebooks. The Google Pixelbook plus the Samsung Chromebook Pro in fact break the 2,400 x 1,600 barrier, but these two sacrifice physical screen size (12.3 inches) for the toshiba battery pa3817u 1brs/toshiba laptop battery pa3817u 1brs larger resolution. Even more, Acer’s Chromebook can go larger than its default having a weird two,160 x 1,215 resolution that’s not a “recommended” setting.

The final piece of the presentation is Acer’s brilliant speaker placement. In most situations, when speakers are mounted around the lenovo think pad x1 carbon 20fb battery bottom on the laptop you can nonetheless hear the audio bouncing off the surface underneath the laptop and up by way of the keyboard. The outcome might be metallic, muffled, and distant to a degree simply because the audio is not directed towards your ears.

But in this case, the two speakers are pointed straight at your face. The sound is crisp and “holy cow it is loud,” absolutely free to penetrate your ears without having obstructions. But what’s missing right here can be a bass component for adding audible “depth” as Loki explodes via New York City in the Avengers. Since it stands now, the dell 40wh m5y1k battery/dell m5y1k battery sound is quite treble-centric even though the bass-heavy explosions can at times outcome in a distorted mess. Nonetheless, you get massive sound with this Chromebook, and we enjoy it.

Performance

The Acer Chromebook 15 is equipped with an Intel Pentium N4200 CPU quad-core 1.1 GHz processor and 4GB of LPDDR4 memory. As could be the dell inspiron 15 7559 charger/dell inspiron 7559 charger case with most Chromebooks, the processor and RAM specifications aren’t a thing that’s going to impress you – especially should you generally are browsing gaming laptops, or only look at the Pixelbook in comparison.

As a point of comparison, I ran the tests on older Chromebook’s my children use, also because the Google Pixelbook I had on hand. The Acer Chromebook 15’s performance fell inside the lenovo yoga 700 14isk charger/lenovo yoga 700 14isk battery middle of them all. The Pixelbook’s Speedometer score (higher is improved) was 109, whereas an Asus Chromebook Flip C100P that is two or 3 years old scored a low of 26.

Keep in mind, the Pixelbook I tested is equipped with an Intel Core i5 and is far more than double the price with the Acer Chromebook 15.

Battery life

In truth, it is so ridiculous that we basically had to run the toshiba laptop battery pa5109u 1brs/toshiba battery pa5109u 1brs battery test twice on this laptop, since it became apparent our initial try started as well late in the day. With all the screen and volume set to 50%, plus a nearby copy of Guardians of your Galaxy running on loop, the Acer refused to die.

The second battery test attempt started at six:45am, using the Acer lastly providing up the ghost at 11:32pm – that’s astonishing. The lenovo yoga 3 14 battery/lenovo yoga 3 14 battery replacement manufacturer claims 12 hours of battery life, and it is uncommon to determine actual numbers come close to manufacturer claims, significantly much less exceed them by such a big margin.

The trade-off amongst energy and longevity is worth it, especially when the battery life is so amazing. The Acer has no fans to drain the battery and, with much less rugged hardware than either the Samsung or Pixelbook, and it under no circumstances felt hot.

Final verdict

Chromebooks are an incredible way to get stuff performed online at a affordable cost. To that end, lenovo ideapad p400 touch battery/lenovo p400 touch batterythe Acer Chromebook 15 is much more of an desirable tool than anything else, a approach to get the job carried out and appear excellent carrying out it.

It also benefits massively from the sharp, colorful 15.6-inch touch display. Motion pictures and on the internet video look excellent on this screen, and text is crisp and clean. Working with the Acer to work on the net is really a treat, with hp spectre x360 13 battery/hp spectre x360 13 4066nz battery eye strain lowered by the ample screen and its great text rendering skills.

The most tough thing in generating a judgement contact about the Acer Chromebook 15 is weighing its comparatively low energy against its magnificent battery life – it is just unbelievable. Functioning around the train or watching motion pictures with out worry of a dead battery is big, and with lenovo x1 carbon 20bt battery/lenovo x1 carbon battery 20bs such a gigantic reservoir of electrons from which to draw, the battery much more than tends to make up for any sluggishness it may well have running a dozen or a lot more tabs.

Ultimately, the Acer Chromebook 15 can not compete against the Samsung and Pixelbook in terms of power and functionality. But its value, coupled having a sharp show, handsome exterior and completely jaw-dropping battery, make up for its shortcomings.
