It’s a great little machine (ask anyone who owns one!) and does things your laptop can do, and frankly some of them it does better! The price is the lowest we’ve seen anywhere for this excellent little model, and a great laptop deal considering the sheer quality that Acer is putting into this and all of their Chromebooks lately. How long this price is valid is anyone’s guess.
Best Buy (at eBay) is offering the Acer CB5-571-C4G4 15.6″ Chromebook for just $249.99 with free shipping.
The CB5-571-C4G4 operates on Google Chrome, and the dual-core Intel Celeron 3205U processor handles it better than just fine. The 15.6″ display is certainly worthy of a more expensive laptop, with 1920 x 1080 resolution and a display that’s backlit with LED lighting. A hard drive with 16GB of storage is plenty for a Chromebook, and 4GB of system memory is plenty for opening multiple windows thanks to the use of the simpler operating system. A one year warranty from Acer is included.
