Acer C7 Chromebook AC710
The C7 Chromebook is powered by a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor., 320GB hard drive, 11.6-inch, 1,366 x 768 resolution display and a battery that is good for up to 3.5 hours of life per the official spec sheet.
Plenty of ports.
Large hard drive.
Simple to use.
Shockingly low price.
100GB of free Google Drive cloud storage for two years.
Competent screen and keyboard.
Disappointing battery life, USB 2.0, not 3.0
Saddled with an ugly design.
Short battery life.
The Chrome OS is still too limiting, though it's made some strides in a year.
