Acer Chromebook 715 review: A big and fast premium laptop marred by an underwhelming display

Google introduced the idea of a premium Chromebook (and a matching premium price tag) with the original Chromebook Pixel. Other companies have followed suit with devices like the Yoga C630 from Lenovo and some HP X360. In this competitive landscape, Acer has a compelling solution of its own: the Acer Chromebook 715. Acer's new high-end Chromebook sports an all-metal construction with MIL-STD 810G compliance, optional quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with up to 16GB of RAM, a full-size keyboard with a number pad, and an optional fingerprint reader. Currently, there is no other large Chromebook on the market that has those last two features.

Walmart's got for sale the 15.6" Acer Chromebook 715 with a respectable Core i3 CPU and an all-aluminum build for just $300, a full $100 off its usual price.
