A friend of mine has the Acer Chromebook R11 and suggested I get it because it's cheap and he really likes it. I originally was considering more expensive options, but I had tried his Chromebook for a couple hours (writing a paper using it) and I liked it too. I ordered a new one, and upon receiving it I plugged it into the charger for its first charge. The laptop seemed to work great in general when I started changing my settings and searching for websites. However, the charger fit into the charging port very loosely, and when I moved the laptop on my lap it fell out easily. I figured I might have gotten a laptop with a faulty charging port and I returned it for a replacement.The second new Acer Chromebook R11 that Amazon sent me had a normal charging port. The charger fit well and did not fall out. But, the touchpad did not work. I tried to troubleshoot it and change touchpad settings, however every time I moved my fingers on the touch pad the cursor jumped around the screen. I ended up returning this one as well and choosing a more expensive laptop from a different company as I planned originally. My friend's Acer Chromebook R11 works fine and he has had it about 6 months. He was surprised that I had these troubles.I'm not sure what the quality control process is. It seems the experience with this laptop depends on whether one receives a fully functional one.
We purchased this computer for my 2nd, 4th and 6th grader to share because so much homework now HAS to be done on a computer. For the ~$200 we spent, I couldn't be happier. Except for making phone calls, it can do everything my expensive smart phone can do. Plus it can do most of what an expensive laptop can do. It is an amazing compromise.On a practical note: It MUST have WiFi to get to a function point. Once loaded it operates well without it. I would HIGHLY suggest ensuring your Google Docs is set of Offline availability (it is found in the app under settings). That way schoolwork can continue when not on WiFi.
My previous tablet was a nice inexpensive Win 10 with an attachable keyboard so I could use it like a mini PC. It was very nice, however quickly the battery became so weak it wouldn't last more than an hour. I needed something that would last all day, be lightweight, and still be used like a PC when I'm not at home.This is exactly what I was wanting! Even though it's a Chrome OS, all of the apps you get makes it feel like a PC. Use this as a laptop, then fold the keyboard backwards and use it as a tablet. The touch screen can also be used in laptop mode. It's all very responsive. The battery lasts ALL day! Depending on what you're doing with it and how you use it and for how long, you can make it last a few days before you have to recharge it. I usually am able to use it and charge it every third day or so.This is also able to load most all Google Play apps, just like your Android phone! Sync this up with your Google account and you can have all of your bookmarks and information from your Chrome internet browser that you use on your phone and your PC. Even has Microsoft apps you can get to keep up to date on your windows PC.
