(image credit)


Testing out the Acer C7 Chromebook today, and here are my quick impressions:


Pluses
  • 320 GB hard drive
  • Price: $199
  • Quick-loading
  • Many ports: Three USB ports, 1 HDMI, 1 VGA, ethernet
  • Upgradeable
  • Display easier on eyes than Samsung
  • Only a light touch needed for the touchpad

Minuses

  • Only 4 hours of battery life
  • Heavy: 3 lbs.
  • Keyboard a little flimsy. F8 mute button does not toggle.
  • Two finger scrolling is too slow
