"This Chromebook is perfect! It can handle anything I want to do. I mostly use it for internet, email, using google drive/docs, and zoom. I previously had a less powerful Chromebook that couldn't handle Zoom, but this one has no problem," one customer said. "I absolutely love the white color as well. It's nice to have something different than black. I turned it on and started using it immediately. Don't hesitate to get this!"
"Great computer for my real estate business. Small and light for my “on-the-go” job. Very fast and great keyboard," one customer said.
One customer said, "The build and overall quality of this Acer laptop is amazing for the price. CPU is fast enough for everyday use (like for surfing the internet, YouTube, watching movies, word processing, etc.). IPS screen is very nice and the LCD is plenty bright. The backlit keyboard is a major plus, as I use the laptop in the dark quite often."

Glossary of terms
Tech terms can be a little confusing to understand, but let us break it down for you.
Onboard storage/memory/SSD: These terms all refer to the amount of content a computer can hold. Games, documents, videos, pictures, and more all count toward this. It's what was once referred to as a hard drive, although most drives now are solid-state drives. 256GB is the standard, and usually the lowest you should go.
RAM: RAM is a type of temporary memory that the computer uses to keep things within easy reach. The more RAM it has, the better a computer performs. Between 8GB and 16GB of RAM is the average for modern computers, with gaming computers leaning toward the higher end.
Graphics card/GPU: This is the device that helps create images on-screen. These tend to be expensive additions, and the highest-end cards can cost upwards of $1,000 on their own. A laptop that includes an RTX 2000- or 3000-series card is offering tremendous value if it falls in an affordable price range.
CPU: This stands for "central processing unit." It describes how much a computer can do at once without slowing down. The more cores, the more data a system can handle.
