School vacations are just about to end or some students have already started attending their classes. If you are finding a device which perfectly serves the purpose of doing your school or college based tasks then here is a good news for all the students and teachers: Acer has come up with yet another hit, the Acer Chromebook 15 C910. This is an incredible Chromebook that meet your demands perfectly by offering a wide range of essential latest features. We have seen that most of the Chromebooks come in small sizes and in affordable budget but this is a special one as it is bigger on size, bigger on price and above all bigger on features. With the Core i5 processor and 15.6 inch screen size, it has got rivals such as Pavilion Chromebook by HP and the king of Chromebooks, the Google’s Chromebook Pixel 2. Targeted to the student class, let’s see if this Chromebook offers with the power and performance one looks for when buying a notebook for carrying out assignments and other important tasks.
Design and Display
We always like to start off our review by analyzing the display and design of the device as it is always interesting. Anyways, C910 is undoubtedly a big notebook with a decent stylish look. It weighs around 4.85 pounds which is heavier than its competitors we outlined in the beginning. However, it is ideal for people having meetings and work on the go.
Furthermore as it is aimed at students and teachers, it is perfectly designed for such people who would have to spend long hours on working by resting the notebook on desk. Coming with fabric-textured chassis, it flaunts in its gorgeous black color. Well, the bad side about its design is, it is highly magnetic to finger-prints, dirt and smudges but can be cleaned easily by just one wipe. Parents who are spending money on this device for their children need not to worry as it is highly robust and won’t break down easily even if it fall.
Coming onto its display, this 15.6 inch laptop is full HD with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. With this, you will be able to enjoy all your favorite movies, games and other stuff. The display also features wide-viewing angles, enabling you and your friends to watch things comfortably. But if we talk about its rival, Pixel 2, it surely would have to improve as it comes with a better resolution of 2,560 x 1,700 IPS and is touch enabled.
Concluding this section, the Acer Chromebook has ideal display and a decent design that surely catches the eye.
Performance and Features
We can’t review any device without talking about its performance and features. Powered by Intel Celeron 3205U / 1.5 GHz and dual-core, it can be considered as one powerful notebook. However, we cannot compare it with its competitor Pixel as it comes with a different processor i-e, the Intel Core i5 which is entirely different story. Overall, the performance was found decent, perfectly syncing with the needs of students and teachers.
A device cannot be called an all-rounder until it has a good battery life. Acer Chromebook is not only better outside but also inside as it manages to work for around 8 hours and 48 minutes which is more than enough for working. However, when compared with the Pixel 2, it slightly under performs in terms of battery.
Key-board and Track-pad
People who have to write endlessly and are quite sensitive about the key-board and trackpad, they will feel happy to find out about these input devices. The trackpad has been ideally designed with a really smooth touch. Key-board is spacious and keys are ergonomically placed. This well-sized and spaced out keyboard lets the user to type without any problem and with lesser typos.
Connectivity is made easier as it features USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, as well as HDMI and an SD card slots accompanied by bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
Acer Chromebook 15 C910 is definitely not something for everyone. It is specially designed for students and teachers which are likely to work by sitting in one place. It doesn’t run in the race for being the lightest, it has its own market and own people to target.
It is amazingly designed with long-lasting battery and delivers outstanding performance, perfect for carrying out daily computing tasks.
