Pros

  • Full HD screen
  • Long battery life
  • Large comfy keyboard

Cons

  • Poor audio

Bottom Line

With a price tag as attractive as this it's very easy to overlook the poor sound quality on this stylish, fast and portable Chromebook.


The Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T9B0 is a bestselling 2014 13.3-inch Chromebook that received positive reviews for its Full-HD display, solid build quality, a fast and power efficient Tegra K1 processor, excellent battery life and a comfortable, large-size keyboard. However, like other Chromebooks its offline functionality is limited, its processor isn’t as powerful as the Intel Core i3 processor found on some competitors, and the speaker quality doesn’t match up to the rest of the specs. Considering there are many flashier alternatives with low-end specs going for the same price, the CB5-311-T9B0 is a wiser investment as it packs an excellent display, the latest processor and a longer battery life than most Chromebooks.

    One of the nicer-looking and better-performing Chrome OS systems, the 13-inch Acer Chromebook adds some zip by ditching Intel for an Nvidia processor, but also hits a few issues with popular Chrome apps.

    The Acer Chromebook 13 is on the cutting edge, with an Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, advanced gaming support, and a 13-inch full HD display. But even with all these advancements, it doesn't seem much better than most of the competition.
