I bought this from BB a couple of days ago at the same price after my chromebook 14 screen messed up. It's an ok replacement but not on the same level as the 14 in terms of fit/finish and I miss the larger screen of the 14.

I bought one for $130 after price matching Walmart. I got it to replace an iPad mini 2. I like it but I do miss that retina display. I see my self upgrading to another chrome book in a few years with a better screen

You really need to define what you're looking for in a "regular" laptop. Chromebook is a laptop but it is simply equipped with a chromeOS with a chrome browser and all the cloud based applications that google offered for free. If you're just using it for surfing web, watching YouTube, light movie watching, writing papers, then chromebook is a fit. But if you're doing stuff that requires you to install local software like autocad then you better off going with your regular laptop. We have 3 chromebooks, 2 surface books, 5 iPads, 5 desktops, 2 MacBook airs, 2 MacBook Pro. Surprisingly, the chromebooks got the most usage. Really comes down to what you're looking to use it for. Nowadays everything is going cloud based.

If you miss the 14 that much, there is the R13. Agreed, the finish of the Acer 14 is amazing, Apple like, but I returned the one I bought from Groupon for 199 because it only had 2gig of RAM and no android app compatibility. The Acer R11 and R13 are Android compatible with ARM processors.

this acer R11 with 4GB does the Google Play Store. I've had mine for six months or so and it just keeps getting better with frequent updates. Screen is okay for streaming video and the speakers are loud. I think the build is pretty good and battery life helped during recent power outage. Touchscreen is great, like an extra tv in tent mode.

Just the person I need to talk to. Can you please see if you can run the Periscope android app?

Yes and no. Chromebooks and Windows etc. laptops have different advantages and disadvantages. Chromebooks are better light duty machines and more powerful Windows and Apple machines are better at heavy duty tasks like video editing. Google "Chromebook vs. laptop" and read reviews. Chrome OS is much lighter on system resources and doesn't spend much time updating, like you almost don't even notice it, and Windows updates are annoying.

The R 11 is rock solid and one of the best Chromebooks. I chose the 4GB RAM/32GB storage version because I didn't want to risk 2GB running low on RAM with a bunch of Chrome tabs and apps. It's one of the first Chromebooks to run Android apps from the Google Play store, for example DirecTV Now doesn't support Chrome OS but you can install the DirecTV Now app. This 11.6" model is very light and portable with long battery life and a bargain when on sale or refurbished. Perfect keyboard and trackpad, just wish it were backlit but almost nothing under around $500 is and you can use the screen keyboard. For now this is my backup and ultra portable computer and TV.
