Summary: I am very pleased with the Acer C7. I haven't had a single problem with it so far. It appears that I'm getting 5 hours of battery life consistently, which is a tad more than predicted. To me, the lower battery life is a good trade off considering the plusses over the Samsung model.
It's so funny to read all these reviews written by people that act as though they would rather scoop dog poop barehanded than touch an Acer product. They always tout the Samsung Chromebook in what's supposed to be Acer Chromebook reviews. Well...I bought a lower end Samsung phone ($89.00) and it came with a browser that that won't even let you access the account that you are using the phone with. Almost all sites you visit will cause a popup to appear telling you that you don't have the memory to access the site. This is with an 8 gig micro sd card. Brand new and the phone would shut down when you closed the slider. I had to shim the battery with a piece of cardboard to keep that from happening. A minute and a half to send a 50k picture...if it sends the picture at all. I could go on and on. The last thing I want is another low end Samsung item.
So...anyhoo...my advice is that if money is a concern and you want an item that functions very well for the price, buy the Acer C7.
