To work efficiently, you don’t have to turn to overpriced computers, while Chromebooks offer great value. This is all the more true when these laptops are found in an accessory pack at a reduced price, as is the case with the Acer CB514 Chromebook.
In 10 years, Chromebooks have made remarkable progress in establishing themselves as excellent alternatives to Windows laptops, but also to MacBooks. The evolution of ChromeOS into a fast, easy-to-use, virus-free operating system has had a lot to do with it.
It is therefore interesting to opt for a Chromebook when you are looking for a computer to work in peace. Especially since they generally offer excellent value for money. This is particularly the case of the Acer CB514 which, not content with being included in a pack with accessories, benefits from a nice reduction at Fnac. So it displays a price of 399 euros against 479 euros usually.
A Chromebook that focuses on the essentials
Despite its low price, the Acer CB514 Chromebook offers a sleek design with its all-metal chassis. A rare finish in this price segment. The keyboard is also very pleasant to use on a daily basis.
Its 14-inch IPS panel is tactile, which offers better ergonomics, and above all delivers a Full HD definition which greatly improves visibility.
But the main interest of a Chromebook is to be able to count on an ally of choice to work. And on this side, the Acer CB514 does not disappoint since it has a Pentium N4200 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD. This configuration offers sufficient performance for very comfortable daily use, especially in office tasks.
Chrome OS, the best ally of productivity
A dimension in which Chrome OS excels. Chrome OS’s constant sync with the cloud and apps on Google Drive keeps you productive at all times. The Acer CB514 only takes a few seconds to boot, thanks to the excellent optimization of this operating system.
What’s more, Chrome OS updates automatically in the background, and automatic backups protect against losing a work-in-progress in the event of an accidental disconnection. The Acer CB514 enjoys a significant autonomy, flirting with ten hours, which allows long-term use without having to worry about the battery level. Finally, on the connectivity side, we can count on the presence of a 3.5 mm jack port, two USB ports and a USB-C connector.
A Chromebook that knows how to surround itself
Fnac does not content itself with offering the Acer CB514 at a reduced price, the brand also assigns it a series of accessories to optimize its daily use.
Thus, the Acer CB 514 is accompanied by a gray transport case, discreet and ideal to protect the laptop from small shocks during transport. An Acer wireless mouse also fits into this pack, just to make navigation more enjoyable, and thus be able to bypass the trackpad.
But the real asset of this box is of course its price. Usually offered around 480 euros, the Acer CB514 pack now displays a price of 399 euros at Fnac. Depending on the delivery method chosen, the Acer CB514 will take between 1 and 5 days to reach you.
