    Great review thanks! Can you answer any of these follows? 1. i know the spin 11 comes with a free stylus and I dont think this one does. But if I already have one (or want to get a cheap knock off one), I CAN use it on this right? 2. I have noticed there are so many model numbers (not only for R11 but other acer computers)DOes the model number really matter? 3. On this link, Google says this particular model can use android apps (and so does your review). Was it hard and did you have to follow the instructions shown at the asterick in this link??.

    Just got mine and I am very happy with it. I only need it for college, so writing documents and visiting websites is all I use it for. Anything else I do at home on my other laptop (like gaming, video editing, photoshop, ect.) The laptop really isn't meant for heavy duty use, but definetly is worth recommending to anyone looking for an affordable laptop for school. Great review!!

    I was thinking of getting the Acer R11 $160 refurb one (16GB Flash, 4GB Ram, 1.6 GHz Celeron N3060) for my first Chromebook. I just want it for casual web surfing on the couch and watching videos or light gaming on a plane. Basically, I want a large cheap android tablet with a keyboard, which is impossible today. Is that R11 worth it today in 2018?

    This is gonna be my first chromebook

    First of all,Chromebooks are not meant to replace any Windows or Mac computer. Google does not even usually brand them laptops because they are not laptops-so to speak.

    Just got an Acer r11 today. Not bad, but please tell me this keyboard has a backlit feature? No answers google search about this either, or youtube reviews mentioning backlight keyboard on r11.. I'm hoping I just haven't figured it out yet.. that there is one. Please tell me there is. Lol, if not.. damn this should be a necessity.

    I got a refurb white model for around $170 thanks to your vid. Been using it heavily as a secondary device and it works great for my needs.

    I noticed that the black version's MSRP is $100 to $130 (USD) more than the white version's MSRP, but all of the specs look the same between the black model at CB5-132-CL1K white model; processor, screen, SSD, and CPU all seem the same. Is there something else about the black version that you've noticed that increased the price?

    I'm looking for something to store my photos and videos, and also edit them. Would this be a good choice? If not are there any other choices for 400 or less?
