Bottom Line

The Acer Chromebook CB3-431-C5FM offers much more than its modest price tag suggests, and with its long battery life and compact design, it makes for a great carry-on device.

The Acer Chromebook CB3-431-C5FM is a 14-inch 2016 laptop that has been praised for its stylish aluminum design, sturdy build, compact frame, long battery life, Full-HD screen, and powerful speakers that fill the whole room. However, the display is dim and washed out despite its resolution, and the keyboard is shallow and uncomfortable to type on. Regardless, the Acer Chromebook is a great performer, beating out most in its category, and for the price, you really couldn’t do much better.
