Don't be fooled by Acer C710 2833 Chromebook having minimal technical specs and features.. Chromebook uses Google Chrome as the operating system so it doesn't need a lot to run efficiently to meet all your computing needs, especially if you are on the go. You can start the machine in a few seconds thanks to SSD and cloud based Chrome OS. The intuitive Chrome interface seems like a lot of fun too.

Intel Celeron Processor 847 at 1.1GHz and 2GB DDR3 Memory are enough to run this laptop properly, without the user encountering any problems. There is no standard Serial ATA hard drive on the little Chrome. 16GB SSD Drive is what you will get instead and it has its advantages too, in terms of speed and performance. You also get a 100 GB storage on Google Drive for free for two years.

11.6" HD Widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit Display with 1366x738 pixel resolution and Intel HD Graphics with 128MB of dedicated system memory will give you a bright screen and beautiful colors- so the overall image quality is great for such a light and low cost machine. HDMI port also lets you connect to a larger LCD screen to watch your movies or to view your photos. You get a built in webcam to talk to family and friends as well as two built-in stereo speakers for adequate sound. Keyboard is also quite all right with a multi-gesture touchpad. It is a full size Acer FineTip Keyboard.

Acer C710 is satisfactory in terms of its battery life- you get up to 4 hours of battery life from its 4-cell Li-ion Battery. You have the 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi for wireless connection, 10/100 Ethernet LAN for wired connection, 3x USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port and a built in HD Webcam for connectivity. It is quite portable as it is an 11.6" screen and weighs only 3.05lbs.

Conclusion: Acer C710 2833 Chromebook is a great little machine. It start and restarts very quickly, runs the most popular Google apps, is only 1 inch thin, its keyboard and touchpad give you nice typing experience. You'll be quite surprised how the little Chromebook performs for anything you do on the internet and you'll be satisfied with its power, speed and performance, especially with how much you pay for it.
