Solid computer By:
Excellent for someone who wants to surf web and use google docs to work on. It has touch screen and long battery life. Happy customer
Invaluable for a college student for simple school tasks. By:
Before getting this, I had a Toshiba Windows 10 machine that was heavy, had a short battery life, was falling apart, and was becoming slower with each day--all of which made it hard to get stuff done. As a college student, I needed a quick, affordable solution for doing schoolwork on the go.Enter the Acer R13 Chromebook. It's smaller and much lighter than my laptop, making it a lot more portable. It starts up quickly and is super-fast, allowing me to get straight to homework without having to go through long loading and annoying Windows updates. Unlike my laptop, it doesn't make any noise. The touchscreen is useful, especially when making notes in OneNote that involve a lot of drawing (like math and chemistry). Performance-wise, I'm able to open multiple tabs in Google Chrome without any slowdown (though an ad-filled page will make things a bit laggy).Most importantly, the battery life is phenomenal. I often get 9-10 hours with average use, and find that I only need to charge it once a day or once every two days. I can use it anywhere I want on campus (providing there's wifi) without having to search the room for the nearest outlet.The downsides:-If your school's wifi is poor, the Chromebook will be pretty useless since there isn't much you can do offline.-You can't install full-fledged computer programs (like Adobe Photoshop) or any PC gaming titles. (Really, you can't install anything that's not an Android app.)-Office products: the Android app versions are good for basic stuff, and so far they meet all of my basic needs (especially Word). However, if you need certain features that are only available in full Office products, then you will be out of luck here. I still need full Word/Excel/PowerPoint, so I use the Office apps on the Chromebook to "get started" and add more crucial detail on my laptop later on.-No "delete" key. (I find this weird.)-Dependence on cloud storage (which can be good and bad).If you need something with the portability of a tablet but some of the functionality of a laptop, this Chromebook is perfect for you. Overall, this Chromebook meets my basic needs as a college student (portability, web browsing, typing papers, doing online homework), but will not replace the full functionality of a laptop. I use it as a compliment to (but not a replacement of) my laptop.
Chromebooks Rule, Battery power is as promised By:
I am a heavy user of resource hungry programs and my work laptop is fully loaded to get me through the day. However when I get home my home laptop was also fully powered despite the fact that all I do is surf the web and watch Amazon Prime and Netflix. It was overkill. 16GB Ram to stream Amazon Prime is a bit of overkill. So is the 4K screen. What I really wanted was a lightweight machine, with an HD screen that would work all day on battery alone. Sounds like the perfect niche for a Chromebook. After reading up on the different options out there I decided on the Acer Chromebook R13 based on reviews and specs and pricing. The machine accomplishes what is was intended to do. Nice clear picture, streaming video, and Chrome OS which is great. The operating system integrates very nicely with my android phone so my calendar and email stays up to date on the Chromebook, my android phone and my windows 10 machine. Most importantly. Best of all, I am no longer tethered to a power outlet. The Acer R13 specs list it has a 12 hour battery and I routinely get between 11-12 hours between charges. Thinking of getting a Chromebook, you would do well to pick up the Acer Chromebook R12
Amazing Value!!!! By:
Great for the money!!!
great computer By:
i’ve had this a few months now and it’s great. just because it’s a chromebook doesn’t mean it’s not a quality machine. i can do everything i need to. i got this for college and it works with our online canvas and the word we use and everything. looks very sleek and like a macbook honestly. i love it!
Five Stars By:
i love it
Bought this for my Mom-in-law.. By:
and now everybody wants one! All good so far!
Great Value and Quality 2 in 1 Chromebook By:
It hits all the right notes for me. Good battery life, durable, ergonomics, can run google apps and bounce easily between laptop and tablet mode. The display is crisp and bright, speakers are pretty decent. All in all, a great value for under 400.
I love it !!!! :D By:
If you're like me, we both love nice things. Those nice things usually cost a pretty penny so I was a little skeptical about buying this because it's not super duper pricy . It's the best laptop I've ever had! Honestly I would prefer it over an apple any day, it's perfect for doing my homework from college,or just simply kicking back and relaxing while playing a game, or watching a movie. If this is in your budget I would highly recommend this 100%! I've had it for a couple months now and it's still functional & powers up fast & the battery life is amazing!!!
Great for my son By:
My son's 5th grade class requires a chromebook or laptop, so we got him this. He's been using it daily for 5 months. The "R" key fell off a month or so in, we sent it back, they fixed it and returned it. No problems. It's been great. He loves it, it's easy to use, the touchscreen is great, as is the webcam/mic for online classes. The only problem now is that he stepped on it and cracked the screen. But it lasted 5 months! Will try to replace the screen...if not, I'd buy this again. It's great for him.

Easy to use, well equipped By:
HS student loves it.
Fast and functional By:
Perfect chromebook for my middle schooler. Much faster that the older R11 version. I recommend buying the protective case with the rubber that goes around the edges if you are buying it for a kid.

Great purchase By:
Works great!
My wife loves it By:
I have not personally used the device as it was a gift for my wife. She says she loves it. I think she uses it in both tablet and laptop mode. But the touch screen sells it for her. Anyone need a not too old ASUS laptop? She'll never touch that again.
Love it!! By:
Absolutely love this machine. It has a small footprint so fits in my messenger bag easily. Battery lasts along time depending on what I use it for. I ended up picking up a usb C hub that allows me to plug USB 3 as well as hdmi and ethernet into the device. For simple day to day use I get almost 12 hrs out of it. For streaming webcast I usually get about 4 hrs of continuous use. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a chromebook that will run Android apps.
Very useful machine By:
This thing does everything I need it to do and well. YouTube, email, web browsing, ssh, Google Docs, android apps like Slack, Discord, Skype. This is a great machine.
Excellent product! By:
After doing my research on laptops and owning a few duds, this Asus Chromebook has exceeded my expectations. You will not be disappointed. This is a high-quality, affordable, top-of-the line laptop. It is sleek and powerful. I will be buying a few more soon!
love it By:
fantastic build quality. great battery life. Boots in three to four seconds. fast fast fast.
Good product By:
Good product
Small keyboard By:
Smaller keyboard than I’m used to, I’m a woman with small hands and I still cramped. Outer material scratches easily if you’re lazy like me and throw it in a backpack along with books. But if you have a soft laptop case it should be fine.
Great Buy By:
I was looking for a chromebook to handle my work travel needs and boy did this purchase fit nicely. Great price, great performance, and very good materials. I think the price point for it is perfect as well. After looking at many different products from cheapest to most expensive (Google Pixelbook which is amazing as well) this one hit every check box I was looking for and at a much more affordable price tag. If you are in the market for a chromebook look no further as the only other one I have found that I like more (pixelbook) costs twice as much. So save your money and go with this!
My daughter loves this. By:
Very easy to set up. Works out of the box.

The laptop overall is very promising By:
I have no words but this is the best Laptop I’ve ever used since a MacBooks
Love it ! By:
No complaints!!
Love the Acer Chromebook R 11 By:
We purchased the same Chromebook a year ago and loved it so much that we bought one for my 75 year old mother for Christmas. It's super lightweight, easy to use, and has a great batter life.
Keep your wife on chrome and off your back. :) By:
Got it for my wife and haven't heard any complaints so must be PERFECT!
Like it. By:
Exactly what I expected.
Christmas present By:
Christmas present for my daughter 2 years ago and she’s still using it.
Just working on setting it up. By:
Good deal, chaeaper at Target though but at Target has just black. thank you, but track pad is a little difficult to adjust to but for price. Still a good buy.
Sturdy By:
Perfect for our daughter to use in college and during clinicals.
Great laptop By:
Love the touchscreen. Very versatile.
Awesome for the price By:
So far so good. Faster than I expected. I've read a lot of complaints about the track pad but honestly, I'm not seeing the issue. Clicks are perhaps a little deeper than I might like, but it's no reason to complain. The track pad is otherwise very fast and accurate - more so than other newer laptops I've had. Overall this is great. My partner is impressed enough to have decided to purchase one as well.
