The Chromebook — a laptop from Google that is based on the company’s Chrome OS operating system (thus the name) — has always been championed for its affordability and simplicity. And the Acer C7 model is no exception. Super fast, super durable, and super light, the Acer C7 has understandably become a hit with both critics and consumers alike. Ultimately, the Chromebook is an extremely affordable way to get online for your basic Internet use.

The Acer C7 employs a svelte form factor. It weighs only three pounds, and it’s just an inch thick. This makes it easy to carry around. And yet, the 11.6-inch screen is big enough to provide an easy-to-view display with its high-definition technology. Still, if you want to, you can connect external monitors to the laptop — thanks to its HDMI and VGA outputs. Also on the Acer C7 are three USB ports for hooking up devices like printers and external hard drives, an auxiliary jack for plugging in headphones, and a memory card slot for adding flash memory with Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMediaCard (MMC) cards.

As a Google product, the Acer C7 Chromebook is loaded with prime Google software. Right out the box, the laptop contains Google Search for your online searches, YouTube for playing your favorite videos, and Google Hangouts for your text messaging and voice and video calls. For video calls in particular, it provides an HD camera. Also, the Acer C7 updates itself automatically and comes with virus protection.

No matter the place or time, the Acer C7 Chromebook keeps you connected with dual band Wi-Fi, and there is a 100Mbps Ethernet port for fast wired connectivity. Twelve free Gogo Inflight passes keep you connected when you are thousands of feet away from the ground on an airplane. And if you are not online, you can still access Gmail and Google Docs.

The Acer C7 Chromebook comes with a dual-core Intel Celeron processor — more than enough to ensure considerable zip. For storage, it comes with a 100 GB Google Drive cloud storage, in addition to its built-in 16 GB solid-state drive. And its six-cell battery provides up to four hours of life, which means that you can do without its adapter for a while.
