It's been a while since a Slickdeal made me seriously consider buying something I really don't need, but this is it. I already own one of these which I bought new early this year and it's a wonderful machine. For $320 it's a steal. I'm pasting my comments from this deal three weeks ago when price was $377.

General Chromebook / Acer refurb thoughts:

I've owned or extensively used around 20 Chromebooks and Chromeboxes personally and at work
I've purchased around 10 Chromebooks from Acer refurbished store on Acer. They've all been virtually new. YMMV, but my experience has been 100% successful. Chrome OS is also exceptionally easy to powerwash and start anew.

Acer 516 thoughts:

I own this laptop -- bought it in February new for $450 + tax (Slickdeals thread here)
It's an exceptional machine, and a strong recommend from me for anyone looking for a very large, less mobile Chromebook
The screen is fantastic. I prefer 3:2 screens like on my Acer 713, but wanted a larger laptop and this 16:10 screen is bright, sharp, and very roomy
12th gen Intel + 8GB of RAM lets me do absolutely everything. I've not been able to slow it down to date (I don't use Android apps so that may be more challenging but I suspect it will do fine)
Speakers on the 713 are the worst I've ever had on any laptop and the worst part of that particular machine. Coming over from that, the speakers on the 516 are upward facing and plenty loud and clear for me.
Laptop is not a 2-in-1, does not have a tablet mode, does not have a touchscreen. I personally don't need those features but a deal breaker if you do.
This is one of the few 15"+ laptops anywhere that does not have a numberpad. A true blessing, as I am incapable of using those things with their non-centered keyboard and trackpad.

For this price it's a no brainer if you need a Chrome OS machine at this size.
This is a chromebook, memory requirement is much lower than windows,. Also the swap between ssd and memory is very effective as SSD speed is so fast. For such an inexpensive device, I don't see a reason to have 16GB on board -- what is the use case of 16GB on a chromebook anyway?
