This is a Chromebook? The Acer Chromebook 715 looks like something that you'd expect to see in an office, not an elementary school classroom. That's because at $779, the 715 is a member of that growing class of premium Chromebooks that offer powerful performance in a stately aluminum chassis. But wait, there's more. The laptop has been MIL-SPEC tested, so you've got a fair amount of durability. And this is the world's first Chromebook to feature a dedicated number pad, which can come in handy for business users and students alike. And it has over 10 hours of battery life.
But a dull, dim display and weak audio are the Achilles' heel of this otherwise stellar laptop.
