Well if you are expecting to use an entry level chromebook like this for more than 7 years.....I dont know what to tell you. I don't think I'd have it for more than 3-4 years max.
There's no reason not to send security updates to some devices and not others especially considering they are collecting data on you. Maybe something obsolete 10 years out. Otherwise just promotes e waste.

Best Buy listing and QA mention the backlit keyboard. But Acer's website has no information about it. For anyone thinking 4gb RAM is not enough, it will be more than enough for web browsing, some office and consuming media. If you are into serious Linux Developement, then you are too cheap and should invest in something better anyway.

What I love about Chromebooks is their simplicity, OS lightweight, security and years of software support.

I'm looking for something to surf the web and maybe some emailing while on the go.

Will this choke with a few productivity apps and YouTube tabs open?

Or should I go for the 8gb just to be safe?

Quote from armharm :
Anyone know if these will come in original boxes so they can be gifted?
Highly unlikely. I've gotten a refurb direct from Acer on ebay recently. It was just the laptop wrapped in an inflatable packing sleeve and the charger, in a brown box. No other materials at all, not even a packing slip.

If you are like me don't care for the Android Apps and Linux, remove the Play Store under the settings. It will save you about 600-700Mb of RAM. Not that you are going to run out of memory, but why have something if you are not going to use it.

It's a Ryzen 3 3250C. Might even be interesting if you can change the UEFI and use it as a regular Widnows or Linux notebook.
Why? eMMC seems to be as 'fast' as a FDD

As a owner of a 4gb and 8gb chromebook, you have 0 worries about what you are running or want to run with 8b. 4gb, you might have to compromise with 480/360p youtube if multitasking. Besides that, if you only have 200$ to spend on this type of machine, this is a good deal.

I was wondering when we were going to see the new ryzen 3000 series chromebook chips.

Its 2017 14nm tech that they decided to name as part of the 3000 series when it really isn't even close.

Why AMD wants to recycle this old crap with new sounding names is a mystery. I already ran across that with the 3400 cpus that are really just zen/zen+ parts.

They're also calling these "athlons" in some instances, because who wouldn't want a crappy old cpu with an old cpu name?

Dual core, slow, hot, and get something else.

Quote from CourtC4337 :
Really? That shouldn't be our expectation. Feature update fine but being able to use it securely is another thing
That's exactly my expectation. I would prefer to decide when I'm done using hardware, not the manufacturer.

If it was an entirely new architecture then I might see a loss of future support.

And if they want chrome os to supplant windows, they'll need to support the hardware longer than they currently do. Because win 10 will run on a 20 year old computer just fine.\

As a point of fact, when Google neutered the onhubs because they weren't going to update them anymore and they had graciously decided that they therefore shouldn't be used any more, I decided to not buy hardware from them anymore.

So ye, that should absolutely be our expectation, and google has seen that and is now offering the Flex option.

So the sweet spot for Chromebooks and Android is 8GB of RAM (16GB for windows pc).

There are so many choices around for a laptop style Chromebook, I personally would pay more money and get a product that will last years longer and provide me with the performance that I crave.

Tablets are different, I feel you don't have the choices that are available for laptops.

My preference for a Chromebook Laptop / Convertible
1. 8GB of RAM (I would not comprimise on this)
2. i5 or better..... this will future proof your device and should be able to use the same device for the entire life
3. 128GB of hard drive space OR MORE


Chromebooks that I would consider are

1. I really love tablets so here is some ideas.... Lenovo Duet 5 (open box only) for $280ish. While the CPU is SO MUCH WEAKER, this product offers alot or HP X2 11 ($249 from Bestbuy on Ebay - another Chromebook Tablet) or even the Lenovo 10e refurbished ($80 at Micro Center)

2. $378.40 Acer Chromebook Spin (Refurb): i5-1135G7, 13.5" 2256x1504, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD WITHOU A DOUBT, THIS WOULD BE THE ONE THAT I BUY!!!!

3. $400 HP Touchscreen Chromebook: Intel Core i5-1135G7, 14" 1080p IPS, 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD, Chrome OS $399.97 @ Costco


Good Luck.

The Acer Spin screen is what swayed me to Acer plus the rest of the specs. Spend the extra money if you can and if you can't... If you can't, then I would suggest not buying anything. I personally look for AMAZING value, not the cheapest thing possible.
