Acer Chromebook Spin 713 review: Peak Chrome OS value


For the first few years, Chromebooks were only worth buying if they were cheap as dirt. As Chrome OS has improved, so has the hardware. While Chrome OS is still more limited than Windows or macOS, there's an argument to be made for a nicer piece of hardware running Google's software. Not too nice, though. Chromebooks like the Pixelbook or Galaxy Chromebook are too expensive to be genuinely competitive. The Spin 713, on the other hand, is priced just right.

The best cheap Chromebooks that are actually in stock right now

The ongoing lockdowns around the world have caused an uptick in demand for computers, especially laptops. Chromebooks are incredibly popular for their ease-of-use and competitive pricing, so if you can accomplish everything using just a web browser (and you don't already have a spare PC that can do the job), they're certainly worth looking into.

All of the models we've selected come enough horsepower to handle at least a few Chrome tabs and applications running at once, and most of them have large 14/15-inch screens. We have a dedicated guide for the best Chromebooks overall, but this list is solely focused on budget options with large screens that are actually in stock right now.

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.

Low-cost Chromebooks usually come with slow Intel Celeron or Pentium-level CPUs with a heavy plastic build. But cheap doesn't always mean low-quality, though. 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.
