    The tagline pretty much sums it up. I’m in love with this machine and ChromeOS! My CB5-571, or SoulMate as I call her, boots up and/or shuts down in 4 seconds TOPS. The display is bright and crisp (controls on keyboard to make brighter or dimmer a major plus). I’ve used Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, and it’s comparable to my Samsung 1080p tv.

    The speakers are loud enough for most things. For streaming my Amazon music, I only need about 25%. Even that is a little loud. There were a few youtube videos where I had to turn the sound almost all the way up, but that was due to the poor quality of the videos. There obviously isn’t a subwoofer so it’s not perfect, but so what? This machine has bluetooth and I have a sound bar if I ever really feel like it.

    The CB5-571 is actually pretty lightweight for its size. I’ve been a bad girl and held it under my arm on top of my purse to get into work before I thought of using a bag (if this gives you any indication of its weight). As for its durability, Amazon tested that out for me before I even got it in the mail. They packed it in a box over twice the size with NO PADDING. My laptop was sliding and banging around for days before it reached me to apparently no effect. I’ve had it for three months now and no rattling sounds, works perfectly. In other words, very durable.

    This machine is fast. I always have at least five to seven tabs open plus youtube or music streaming at the same time. I’m doing my reviews on wanikani which requires a lot of refreshing too. All of this and I have yet to see a slow down. I don’t plan on gaming with this computer (who would with ChromeOS??) so its already proven itself to me.

    The keyboard is wonderfully responsive and feels natural. I bought this computer mainly to write. Good keyboard a must. This machine has not disappointed. Only things I miss are the page up, page down, home, and end keys. I didn’t realize how much I depended on them for both my writing and browsing…. On the other hand, I’ve learned the two finger scroll, which substitutes nicely.

    This computer’s shell looks and feels expensive. My last machine cost over a thousand and yet this feels so much more sleek and stylish. The texture on the bottom feels like cloth. There is a slightly different feel to the texture on top. The inside is smooth. Again, it looks and feels expensive!

    I saw some reviews say the battery life isn’t as good as advertised. I don’t agree. I know it depends on your usage but I was on this thing with multiple tabs, messing around on youtube, and streaming music all day long without having to charge it. I have yet to find the “bottom” of my battery!

    Another issue I saw in some reviews was about the tiny text. It’s not a big deal for me. Ctrl+ works just like on a windows computer and if the menu bar is small all it means is I can add even more to my bookmarks bar. I have an astigmatism and wear glasses for it plus I suffer from migraines with aura which leaves me with very kinetic vision for high contrast text or things with a lot of details. Still fine with the size. If you have less issues I think you’re in the clear as far as this goes.

    I read a lot of encouraging articles regarding the security of the OS before buying. This is my first Chromebook and so far I’m really glad I jumped ship from windows. I don’t support where Microsoft is going but felt trapped because I don’t like Macs and am not tech literate enough for Linux. Google came up with the perfect solution for me. The only drawback would be the lack of privacy (and printing), but Google already owns me through my android phone. Then we have Amazon spying through my Echo, Sony through the PS4, Nintendo through the Wii U, and Microsoft through the Xbox One. There’s no escaping it these days. Might as well enjoy all the electronics! I certainly am. No regrets.

    A million stars so far! Will update this review if I find any issues.

    I encouraged my step-father to buy this Acer Chromebook (model # CB5-571-C09S) based upon the large screen size. He has two ‘user issues’ that led me to recommend a Chrome OS based PC to him. First, he’s not tech-savvy and easily frustrated with current technology, and second, his eyesight is affected by macular degeneration. He needed at least a 15″ screen and a laptop that was easy to use.

    Fortunately, he has been using a Gmail for some time and this gave him immediate confidence that he could use the Chromebook as it looked familiar to him. He has also been using the Chrome browser prior to getting the Chromebook. He really only emails, looks things up on the Web and watches YouTube videos, so the Chromebook is ideal for his limited uses.

    I originally suggested a 

    HP Chromebox CB1-014 Desktop (White)

     – which I own and enjoy, which could be connected to a large monitor, but he likes to sit in his chair and check emails while he watches TV so he opted for the largest screen Chromebook we could find. He’s used a Windows XP laptop for about the past 10 years, which recently died. In the past two years he’s intermittently struggled to learn a Windows 8.1 laptop – without success.

    The Acer Chromebook arrived today and I was there to introduce it to him. These are my initial impressions of the Acer Chromebook, and I will update this review after I check back with him in a few days.

    —————————–

    UNBOXING: ‘

    The Acer is bright white, with a matte-textured finish. (Check out the photo with the ports shown to also see this texture in detail.) It’s attractive, but could get dirty easily so users will want to keep their hands clean when handling this one. The keyboard is black, full-sized and comfortable to use. It is not backlit however.

    The one issue I noticed immediately was that the connection of the power cord to the power brick was somewhat loose. I worry about its durability. The other issue with the power supply is that it is a single pin connection that fits into the left side of the Chromebook, and that it doesn’t seat completely into the device. The connection doesn’t feel solid, and can be wiggled. Both of these issues with the power supply are the main reason for the loss of a star on this review.

    Other than the Chromebook laptop, and the power supply, there’s only a basic start-up manual in the box.

    —————————

    FIRST TIME START UP: ‘

    After plugging in the Chromebook I pressed the Start button. Nothing happened. ‘

    I pressed and held the start button until the screen showed the Chrome logo. The setup quickly started and really only required two things: a Gmail account with password to login, and the WiFi password to connect to the Internet.

    Once logged in, all of my step-father’s Gmail based account info synced, including his Gmail, Google Drive and bookmarks in Chrome. This package gives him 100GB of free cloud storage for 2 years too!

    The screen was bright and clear, with the settings defaulting at 1920 x 1080. There is another higher resolution possible (not mentioned in the specs, but showed up in the display options), but it made the print smaller and really would only be needed if you were tethered via HDMI cable (not included) to a larger screen HDTV or monitor. **You can also setup a dual-display with this Chromebook by connecting an external PC monitor or HDTV via HDMI to it.

    Opening the Chrome browser was swift, and YouTube videos played well. The speakers are on both sides of the keyboard and sound really good! **You also have a headphone jack (3.5mm) and Bluetooth capabilities with this Chromebook to add a Bluetooth headset or speaker if desired.

    The Chromebook moves quickly through apps and runs almost silently.

    —————————–

    A FEW THOUGHTS: ‘

    ‘This Chromebook has 4GB of memory; much better than 2GB which seems to be standard, and 32GB SSD (FAST!) hard drive. It’s a very good combo with a 1.5Ghz dual-core Celeron processor.

    ‘The Chrome OS also gives you built-in virus protection, making the need for antivirus software unnecessary, which is great.

    ‘Zippy performance, a nice display (full HD IPS) with anti-glare finish , a HD webcam that takes nice video and stills, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a SD card reader, AC WiFi dual band – 2.4Ghz/5Ghz capabilities (the latest connection standard compatible with older standards too), up to 9 hours of battery life (more than likely about 6hrs), and a relatively lightweight chassis – less than 5 pounds – make it a nice choice for students and those who want to live in the Google ecosystem.

    ‘However, it doesn’t have a wired internet (ethernet) port – WiFi only with this one. It also doesn’t have the ability to accept new programs that aren’t ‘apps’ in the Chrome Web Store. This limits its usability for some users, however if you’re looking at a Chromebook – you probably already know this!

    ‘Considering its price, it’s going to appeal to a smaller audience than the sub-two hundred dollar Chromebooks. For example the 

    Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111-C670 (11.6-inch HD, 2GB, 16GB)

     and the 

    ASUS Chromebook 13-Inch HD with Gigabit WiFi, 16GB Storage & 2GB RAM (Black)

    . When compared to a Windows based laptop; something like this: 

    Asus D550MA-DS01 15.6 inch Intel Celeron N2815 1.86GHz/ 4GB DDR3/ 500GB HDD/ DVD??RW/ USB3.0/

    , that is capable of much more, which can be had for about the same price with better specs and the same screen size, this product may lose out.

    ‘However, if you know a Chromebook is what you want, it’s a nice step up in screen size and clarity by comparison to Chromebooks with the smaller 11″ or 13″ screens. The extra memory seems to provide stable performance and it’s fun to use.

    ————–

    QUESTION: Is it worth the extra cost by comparison to base models with a smaller screen, less memory and a smaller hard drive?

    ANSWER: I think so, but only if you are a user who doesn’t mind its limitations and the power source’s build quality and fit issues. Time will tell if this product’s power supply questionable build quality is also reflected in the build quality, durability and performance of the rest of the product.

    UPDATE: 5/16/15 – User reports a freeze of the system (also noted by another reviewer) where it wouldn’t respond or shut down. He let the power run out on the battery, and then recharged and restarted the system. He didn’t know what else to do, but I advised him to press and hold the power button for at least 10 seconds the next time (if there is one…) to shut the system down.

    After doing a brief check on this issue online I noted that some people suggest resetting your router (Wifi) and checking for Chrome extensions that may be at fault.

    I also found possible issues others are having by looking at the ACER forum. //community.acer.com/t5/Chromebook/Possible-defects-on-Acer-15-inch-Chromebook-CB5-571-C1DZ/td-p/356290

    I will update this review if this issue continues.

    ————————-

    Amazon shopper BKarno added this comment (added here for those who don’t read comments…) which might help someone who has a Chrome related system freeze issue.

    “Being that this is a new Chrome OS build/board, it is important that users make sure that they are running the latest version of the OS and that they are using the Stable channel (problems are to be expected when running on Beta or Developer channel). If the machine locks up, hold the page reload/refresh button (circular arrow on top row) while tapping the power button. This will initiate a hard restart. You may want to try a Powerwash (settings /advanced settings and then way at the bottom of the page) to see if this helps with the locking up (the process takes maybe 5 minutes). Sometimes, things don’t go right when they cram the OS onto the SSD at the factory, and you may have a faulty driver. Just remember to save any files you have saved locally (in your downloads folder) before you do the Powerwash. The Powerwash will re-install the OS and return your machine to it’s initial state (as it was when you received it). After you log in with your Google credentials, the machine will restore all of your apps, extensions, and personal settings. If you continue to have the problem, I would look at your extensions (the ones that show up to the right of the Omnibar) to see if one of them is the culprit. You can reset your browser and disable all of your extensions by doing the browser reset (settings/advanced settings and down at the bottom of the page). After the reset, use the machine like this for a while and see if your problem persists or not. If the problem seems to have gone away, open the hamburger menu, expand “more tools” and then choose “extensions” here you can turn your extensions back on a couple at a time and see if one is causing the issues”

    ——————————–

    UPDATE: 4/25/16

    The initial Chromebook (the one that I wrote the review about…) burned up in a fire (not caused by the Chromebook by the way). It was replaced by insurance and my stepdad also bought a second one. So he now has two of these and I’ve also purchased one for my husband.

    All three of the new Chromebooks work well and as expected. No issues with the power supplies and no freezing. They were all updated to the latest OS out of the box and both users are very happy with them. Especially the large, bright, HD screen!

    I’d recommend this product to those looking for a simple laptop for their older parents who want a big display, and a simple to use computer for email, YouTube videos, social media and surfing the web.

    I’ve upgraded my initial review of 4 stars to 5 as I feel like for the price – this one is tough to beat!
