First and foremost it is important to understand what a Chromebook is not. It is not a laptop in any traditional sense of the word. You do not load your own software on it, and it has very limited local storage and hardware.
Instead, a Chromebook, which runs on the Linux-based ChromeOS (and can run most Android apps in a window via the App Runtime for Chrome - “ARC”), is essentially a screen and a keyboard allowing you a portal into Google’s online ecosystem. That ecosystem includes Gmail, the Chrome web browser, and Google’s productivity suite including Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Presumably Chromebooks will also work well with Google’s upcoming game streaming service, “Stadia.”
Since most of the heavy lifting is done by Google’s servers, Chromebook hardware does not need to be robust. What matters most with a Chromebook is its screen, keyboard, and general build quality.
This is unquestionably the weakest element of the Acer 315, and the reason I cannot recommend it for anything but the most casual use, or for a young child first learning computing skills. The 15.6” screen runs at an anemic 1366x768 resolution. As a result, text looks pixelated, icons look fuzzy, and videos look blurry. In addition, the viewing angles are terrible, and even straight-on the colors look washed-out. This is, frankly, one of the worst screens I have seen on a laptop in recent memory, and - since a Chromebook is really just a screen with a keyboard - that significantly undercuts the utility of the 315.
-=KEYBOARD and TOUCHPAD=-
The keyboard is comfortable and responsive, with standard travel. I had no trouble maintaining my usual typing speed. There is plenty of room in the oversized form factor for you to rest your hands, and the keys have standard spacing. There is no numberpad.
Overall I found the keyboard to be the best part about the Acer 315, and this might make a decent device for teaching a young child to type on a full-size keyboard.
The touchpad is responsive and functional, with two-finger scrolling and zoom working well. There’s no “click and grab” functionality that I could find, and right-clicking is accomplished with a two-finger tap.
-=APPS and PERFORMANCE=-
The utility of a Chromebook depends entirely on how invested you are in the Google ecosystem. If you use GMail and Google Calendar, work primarily in Google Docs/Sheets/Slides, use Chrome as your primary browser, and have an Android phone, you will be able to immediately get to work on this or any other Chromebook. A single login at setup will connect you to your email and calendar, your Play Store account, and all of your documents. Nearly everything on the Chrombebook takes place through the Chrome browser, so your user experience should be familiar.
The Acer 315 had no trouble maintaining a 200 mbps connection to my router, so connectivity does not seem to be an issue. Nonetheless, even loading simple webpages (like Amazon’s storefront) seemed sluggish compared to a standard PC. Performance was overall adequate in Google Docs once the document loaded, but even then there was occasional lag as I was typing or editing. A large Google Sheet was even more sluggish, but still workable.
-=PORTS and BUILD QUALITY=-
The Acer 315 has two USB-C ports, either of which can be used for charging with the included 45w power adapter. There are also two USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack, and a Kensington lock port.
The form factor of this Chromebook is much larger than it needs to be for its screen size. This allows room for two large speakers, one on either side of the keyboard (and with substantial margins around them). As noted above, this gives you plenty of room for your hands, but it also makes for a massive bezel around the screen and makes the device seem cumbersome. The plastic case feels cheap, especially if you are accustomed to more expensive laptops.
I don’t have a battery burn test app for ChromeOS, but based on my use I would expect 6-8 hours of life for normal use.
At this price point, it is reasonable to expect some compromises to make computing accessible to as large of an audience as possible. The Google ecosystem provides a full range of excellent, free tools, and Chromebooks are - generally speaking - a great way to access them. Unfortunately, the significantly sub-par screen on the Acer 315 makes for a frustrating and unpleasant computing experience, making it difficult to recommend it.
This computer does all of that. Yes it can be sometimes a bit slow on certain apps that are really fast on my work's iPad, but it's ok, nothing that drives me nuts. It's pretty light, it starts RIGHT AWAY, the battery last forever... It has a type C plug on each side so you can plus the charger either way. I got a mini USB plug with 256 gb to transfer pictures from my old laptop onto that one.
My roommate has a 3000 dollar Mac and can't believe my tiny cheap laptop works so well. My boyfriend loves it too and was here when I set it up. His boss wants to buy computers for management so he proposed Chromebooks citing mine as an example of how cool and simple they are. They found some even cheaper ones for the company.
