Bottom Line

The Acer Chromebook CB3-131-C3SZ is fast, light and lasts a long time on a single charge, the only downside is the limitations imposed by Chrome OS.

The Acer CB3-131-C3SZ is a bestselling 2014 Chromebook that received positive reviews for its near instant boot up and restart times as well as being incredibly light and portable, weighing in at only 2.4 pounds. Despite only having an entry level Intel Celeron CPU, Chrome OS manages to deliver a fast and responsive experience. Reviewers also praised the long battery life at around 8.5 hours. Reviewers were critical of the small screen size and the limitations of the Chrome OS in general. Overall the CB3-131-C3SZ is a good budget laptop for users who need access to word processing, emails, browsing and google services on the fly. It should be noted that more advanced users can install Linux on this machine removing most of the limitations imposed by Chrome OS.
