Have been using a refurb unit of this for about 1.5 years now and it has been outstanding. Great screen and speakers and handles multi-tasking beautifully. This is a good deal on a nice laptop for casual/intermediate use in the right situation.

Just an FYI for those wondering, this does not have a touchscreen. Still a good deal though.

Seems like a good deal for those who missed Costco's 14" at 199 few days back.

Rock solid machine. I've been using a refurb for the last couple of years and it's my go to machine for surfing. 14,200 Octane is substantially faster than most other newer chromebooks. Only issue is it's large and heavy but for me with "old person eyes" it's great.

$165 on Acer site for a refurb: https://acerrecertified.com/acer-...tom-fields

Probably worth the extra few bucks for a new one and easy return to BB.

Only if it had a touchscreen. Would have jumped .... But would be interesting this holiday considering laptops with SD835 and Windows 10 S will also hit the market around Xmas.

Just ordered this one the other day but have yet to pick up...https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-14-chromebook-intel-celeron-4gb-memory-16gb-emmc-flash-memory-silver... [bestbuy.com]

Worth cancelling and paying the extra $10? Getting it as a gift for a 10 year old.

Pros of the machine you bought:

Lighter weight thus more portable for a 10-year old
Sleeker more elegant looking
More recognizable brand name and potentially better component build quality (this is subjective)

Pros of this Acer machine:

Faster CPU for multi-tasking (this has a more modern processor)
Much better screen with the 1080p 15.6"
Much better speakers (this thing is loud, I'm using it now)

----

I did extensive research on these things before buying this exact Acer last year and I know I made the right decision. The ability to multi-task alone is worth it and playing HD videos is much better on this than it will be on that HP, which I assume is important to a 10-year old.

Gotta make a judgement call on the weight though. If they need something really light and smaller then this isn't going to fit that bill as it's nearly 5 lbs.

If I were making the purchase again I'd buy this. In fact, I've purchased 3 refurb units for friends and family who needed new laptops and who were cool with a Chromebook since it fit their tasks.
