Acer Chromebook AC700
Plenty of ports.
Large hard drive.

A $200 laptop is a difficult thing to assess. On one hand, the Acer C7 Chromebook has that shockingly low price tag, on the other, there is weak build quality and a netbook-grade processor. The trade-offs the buyer must be willing to make are not...-

Voor wie het niet meegekregen heeft: Chromebooks zijn netbooks met kleine ssd's die met Googles Chrome OS-besturingssysteem, feitelijk niet veel meer dan de Chrome-browser, uitgerust zijn. Chrome OS hebben we uitgebreid besproken bij de van de...-
