What shoppers are saying

Backed by a 4.4-star rating from more than 750 customer reviews, the Acer Chromebook 11 has been called an "excellent little laptop for the value."

Since this laptop runs on the Chrome operating system, some reviewers have noted that it's more suited to "basic" functions, including online browsing, watching videos, streaming, social media and some school work.
