[Deal Alert] Acer's Chromebook 14 for Work drops to $390 ($210 off)

Acer has made a name for itself designing and selling good bang-for-your-buck Chromebooks. I came away rather impressed with the Chromebook 15 (2017) not too long ago, despite some shortcuts made to keep the price low. Moving on, though, we're seeing yet another sale on one of Acer's other models; the Chromebook 14 for Work (CP5-471-312N) has dropped to $389.99 on Acer's U.S. store, a savings of $210.

[Update: $349] Deal Alert: The new Acer Chromebook 15 is already $41 off ($359) at Best Buy

Acer is one of many companies manufacturing Chromebooks, and it came out with a new 15.6" model just last month. If you read Jordan's review, you'll know it's a pretty solid laptop, especially considering the price. If you want to grab one, it's already $41 off at Best Buy.

The configuration sold at Best Buy (CB515-1HT-P39B) has 4GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. As mentioned above, the main selling point is the 15.6" 1080p display, since there aren't many Chromebooks with screens larger than 13 inches across.

Acer Chromebook 15 (2017) review: Continuing to make a strong case for Chromebooks

Chromebooks compose an interesting product category and provide a new perspective on the question "What do I need my laptop to do?" While I've been a fan of Chrome OS and its accompanying hardware since its inception, I have not been able to convince myself to buy one in recent years. Part of this has been due to the fact that Chromebooks typically don't come in larger screen sizes.

Some models have shipped with the feature already enabled, while others took a few months after launch to get everything working.

Acer Chromebook 15 hands-on: One big Chromebook

Chromebooks are mostly clustered toward the bottom of the market, and that often means the materials are unimpressive, features are lacking, and the build quality is mediocre. Acer has announced an updated version of its 15-inch Chromebook at IFA 2017 and it's none of that. This device has been slimmed down compared to the last Acer CB15, it has better battery life (up to 12 hours), and it's gained an aluminum frame. You're still not going to get the best hardware out there, but this Chromebook could be just what some people want.

Acer's new rugged Chromebook 11 C771 series has IPS displays and 6th gen Intel processors

It's school season again and every company is either offering deals on existing products or introducing new ones to entice buyers for their back-to-school/college gear. In that vein, Acer has announced a new series of Chromebook 11s, the sexily-named C771.

First off, these are rugged Chromebooks and they've been tested to withstand drops from 48" height (122cm) thanks to corner shields around the keyboard and display, up to 330ml fluid spills on the keyboard, and they're MIL-STD 810G rated. That should help them stay strong in your bag or your kids' backpack, even when under stacks of books, and handle the rough treatment of a classroom environment.
