  • High resolution Screen

  • Poor sound quality at higher volume
  • sluggish CPU

Bottom Line

A fast, portable Chromebook with a crystal clear screen and long battery life. The sound however, tends to crackle at higher volumes and the CPU is fairly underpowered.

The Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311 is a popular 2014 13.3-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its high-resolution screen, solid build, a power efficient Tegra K1 processor, long battery life and silent operation. Like other Chromebooks, its offline functionality is very limited. Its performance is slightly slower than the Intel Core i3 powered model and the speakers crackle at higher volumes. Overall the CB5-311 currently delivers the best Chrome OS experience with a better display, bigger battery, and stronger performance than almost all other Chromebook on the market.
