Acer Chromebook 13 review: long battery life, sharp screen, good price

As the first Chrome OS device with an NVIDIA Tegra chip, the Acer Chromebook 13 isn't as powerful as promised. Still, it manages to redeem itself with long battery life, a sharp screen, a comfortable keyboard and, most importantly, a fair price.

Pros
  • One of the few Chromebooks with a 1080p screen
  • Long battery life
  • Runs quietly, stays cool
  • Comfortable keyboard and trackpad
  • Competitive price
Cons
  • Performance not as strong as promised
  • Limited viewing angles
  • Build quality feels cheap next to some rival devices
  • Heavy compared to some competing models
