What do you know about Acer Chromebook 715? Google launched the idea of a premium Chromebook using the original Chromebook Pixel. Other enterprises have followed suit using devices such as the Yoga C630 from Lenovo and some HP X360. In this stormy market, Acer has a compelling fix of its own such as the Acer Chromebook 715. However, Acer’s latest high-end Chromebook sports an all-metal construction using MIL-STD 810G assent, a mandatory quad-core Intel Core i5 processor using 16GB of RAM, a keyboard full-size using a number pad, and a mandatory fingerprint reader. Recently, there is no other huge Chromebook on the market having the last two features.
I’ve been using Chromebook 715 for the last two weeks (CB715-1WT-527F) is Acer’s version. Its price is $779.99. However, it is costly for a Chromebook, Acer also justifies the price with the stunning build quality, top-rank performance, and the best laptop keyboards I’ve ever used. Acer also cut corners in some areas that make the Chromebook 715 tough to recommend.
