Acer Chromebook R11 Review #tech

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
If you're looking for an affordable mobile computing option for your family, I highly recommend the Acer Chromebook R11. I've been using it for the past week and I am absolutely thrilled with it. Since I already use Chrome on my home computer, setting up the Acer Chromebook R11 was simple -- all I had to do was sign into my account and all my bookmarks were there!
It's under 12 inches wide, which makes it easy to take wherever I go, and since it's lightweight, it's a much better option than my big laptop. The Acer Chromebook R11 is now my official travel computer! The keyboard is big enough that I don't feel all scrunched up like when I use a tablet.
The Acer Chromebook R11 is also pretty thin. I used to lug my backpack around to travel with my other laptop, but this fits nicely into a small totebag and makes being mobile much simpler. It has a nice big touchpad right in front of the keyboard too!
The most wonderful thing about the Acer Chromebook R11 is the versatility. The screen half connects to the keyboard half with full flexibility to go from a laptop computer to a flat tablet. I can use it at any angle that is comfortable for me, depending on where I'm using it and what I'm doing with it.
I love using it as a tablet when I'm scrolling through my social media, especially when I'm lounging in my recliner. If I'm sitting at a table watching movies or videos, I like to set it up like a tent, but if I'm watching a movie in my lap or on my bed, I like to use it as a stand.
The Acer Chromebook R11 runs on Chrome OS, which I've been using for years and love it. Here are the full specs on the computer: Intel Celeron N3150 Quad-core 1.60 GHz, 11.6" HD (1366 x 768) 16:9 IPS, Intel HD Graphics with Shared Memory, 2 GB, DDR3L SDRAM, 32 GB Flash Memory.
It comes with a touchscreen, a webcam, and a microphone too. It will run up to 10 hours on a charge! Since my husband is the more technical one of the two of us, I also asked his opinion of the Acer Chromebook R11 and he says this is definitely one of the better ones he's seen.
The Acer Chromebook R11 is an excellent computer and a great value. If you want an affordable computer for yourself or your kids this holiday season, I absolutely recommend this one!

  1. This would make an excellent tool for use when traveling or blogging in a different location. My old laptop weighs a ton and I rarely take it anywhere. Thanks for the tip!
