I am SUPER happy with my purchase
I received mine today in the south of France, precisely 24 hours after I ordered it from Amazon UK (I hate AZERTY keyboards). What can I say? It’s so much better than I imagined it would be. I won’t repeat what everyone else has said so far except to say that anyone reading this hesitantly can take my word for it, you won’t be disappointed. Oh and the 1 star review I read while trying to decide whether this was a good buy or not is complete rubbish!
A big step up from my previous Chromebook. This really feels like a premium product. The screen is astounding, like it's floating in the air. The keyboard feels perfect. I prefer the back-lighting to be off if I use it on my lap and on if I use it on a desk as it works best if you are looking at it from above rather than at an angle. The trackpad is probably the best I have used - extremely smooth and accurate. Asus have come up with a real winner here.
Great machine, but ever so slightly under-powered for heavy multi-tasking
** Edit (December 2020): I still love this machine after 20 months. Have been using it a lot over the pandemic period as it's much lighter than the 16-inch Macbook Pro I switched to (from Windows) a while back for the more demanding stuff. As with all tech (at least mine), once the initial novelty wears off, the tendency is for it to get tossed around with a lot less care, and this Chromebook is no exception. Apart from a few scratches, it's as good now as it was on Day 1 - stood up to the knocks very well. The only change I would make to my original review below is to say that the trackpad really grew on me with use. Not quite as good as the Mac, and obviously smaller, but nevertheless still precise, extremely comfortable and easy on the joints (compared to a lot of PC laptops I have used over the years). **Original post (from April 2019): The screen is great - sharp, bright and with good contrast - very comfortable to use outside on a bright sunlit day. Don’t believe one of the previous reviews criticising the keyboard and the trackpad. I do a lot of writing for a living and I am finding keyboard really comfortable over long periods - precise and responsive. The trackpad is OK - smooth and accurate - but not exceptional. The touch screen has about the right level of sensitivity for me when reaching out to it in laptop mode (haven’t used the machine much in tablet mode yet). The only very slight caveat is that it gets a bit ‘laggy’ switching between windows when you have a lot of them open - by a lot mean 8-10 - but even then it’s still perfectly usable. As soon as you close down a few windows, it becomes very snappy again. I suspect it’s that the model I have only has 4Gb of memory and some of the things I am running are quite demanding (by Chromebook standards). Other than that, beyond working well as a laptop/notebook, I also use it with a USB-C dock on my desk to drive two 27 inch monitors - no config needed (unlike Windows), and it’s very responsive with the big screens. Last thing worth mentioning is that the machine works a treat with my Huawei LTE dongle - again just plugged it in and it worked (no driver installs or other fuss). Battery life seems pretty good - used it unplugged for about 6 hours a couple of times now, and still a lot of life left in the battery on each occasion. Bottom line: I much prefer using the ASUS C434 to my premium Windows notebook (Lenovo X1 Carbon), even though the latter cost 3 times as much. The ASUS is now my day-to-day workhorse machine. (PS - gave it 5 stars despite the multi-tasking caveat, as that’s more down to me pushing it harder than most people would)

Good laptop though description is misleading
Laptop is good. Easy to set up and runs like a dream. The battery life is great and the screen is clear, bright and with the touch functionality just excellent to use. The keyboard is also excellent. I cant fault the laptop in tandem with chrome OS. Im really pleased with it. Where my experience sours is in the description and amazons customer service. The product page clearly states the laptop has an micro SD slot, however, the laptop i was sent does not. After contacting amazon i was sent a replacement and assured it would have a micro SD slot. The replacement did not. After another call I decided to keep the original and take a concession on the price. Returning the replacement has been a drawn out affair and to date 2 hermes collections have cancelled on me. None of the hermes pick up shops will accept till the second week in january. Why does amazon use such a naff company like hermes for returns? particulary for more high value items. I dont want to be charged again for the item. It just leaves a bad taste in the mouth from the false advertising to the poor customer service. I will have to contact amazon again and organise another pick up which will probably be cancelled. Anyways my advice would be to buy harware from a store where you can physically look at the item to confirm the actual specs as it seems amazon will allow sellers to simply make stuff up.
A lovely bit of kit
I am a big Chromebook fan. For those who are confused this is not a device for use with Microsoft windows, nor to store large amount of data. This device gives you access to apps and any web page you can access through Chrome. Netflix, Prime, Facebook, Messenger, emails, TikTok, and much more. (Note to Netflix users, I would access through through Chrome not the app as NF dumb down the resolution on the app) If you need to write an essay you still can but using Google Docs not Word. As for this particular Chromebook you get such a lot for your money. The picture is fantastic with full HD, good sound, and a really nice responsive keyboard. Mousepad is nice without being oversensitive. Are there better chromebooks out there? Yes. But you will have to pay twice what this one costs to get anything better.
This is our 2nd Acer CB. We have the 13" and now this 15". Both are very good but the newer larger one is truly excellent across the board. Solidly built, fine display, full size keyboard and fast charge. I can not find anything to not like with it. The few quirks are on the CB Chrome OS by Google. A lot of previous quirks are no more but a few still exist. Hooking up to a home network is still not simple enough, not having easy control of some things like notifications takes a little effort. Shades of Mac OS and Win10, but I would take the Chrome OS over either one. Returning to what Acer has accomplished in this CB, fast cpu, large onboard memory, etc. A big bravo for a job well done.
Fast,light and lots of stamina.
This is my first Chromebook, and I found it very easy to set up. I have been using it most of the day and even streamed over an hour of sport in full HD, and I still have 60+% battery. If i ever do need to charge whilst using it has charging ports to both sides, which is a very handy feature. it is a very light laptop, but still feels solid in hand. the speed is fantastic for streaming and surfing far quicker than any windows device i have ever had. the sound quality is great too, and its not fighting a noisey fan. you can get all the apps for spread sheets word processing and photo editing via the play store. overall im sold, this is a solid laptop.
Excellent apart from one niggle.
This is my second Acer Chromebook. I bought this one as my first was reaching it's AUE date. To be honest I was a bit irritated that no Chromebook sellers seem to think that giving the AUE date in the specification is important. They seem happy to sell Chromebooks which will stop receiving automatic updates within a couple of years and yet not think it important to inform the customer of this. I found this out to my cost when I bought the first Chromebook. The AUE date on this Chromebook is June 2026 and I am happy with that. Having had my moan about AUE dates let's get on to the review of this machine. Having had it for a couple of months I can say that I am happy with it except for one issue which is the screen contrast. Those of you who are used to Chromebooks will know how quickly they boot up. This one is no exception and is up and running in seconds. The build is not quite as good as my CB3-431. The aluminium lid has been replaced with plastic but this is not, overall, a problem. The keyboard also seems slightly less robust but again, not an issue. Connectivity is much improved and there is now a card slot. The HDMI port has gone but I never used it anyway. Having Two USB C's is useful as it can be charged from either side. Having the choice between 32GB and 64GB is also good. I went for the 64GB as using Linux on the 32GB takes up 7.5GB of memory and I wanted to have a bit more spare on this machine. I have to say that I am a real convert to Chromebooks. Having using Windows machines for centuries I became totally fed up with the never ending succession of lengthy updates. As a matter of interest, I have converted a couple of old laptops into Chromebooks by using Neverware Cloudready. I can thoroughly recommend readers looking into this if you have an old laptop gathering dust. It is really easy to install and breathes new life into old machines. Google have now bought Neverware and clearly they have something in mind possibly as regards making Chromebooks more secure after AUE dates have expired. As I mentioned earlier my only niggle with this device is screen contrast. I don't know what it is but fonts seem light ans slightly blurry. The background is also a bit hazy and overall it is not as clear as the old machine. I have tried adjusting every setting possible to no avail. I have even installed the font enhancer extension but it has made no difference. For this reason I have docked one star in the review. 4.5 is more like the true rating. If anyone has any suggestions regarding making the screen and fonts clearer I will be happy to hear. In summary this is a great machine for the money. I don't think anyone buying it will be disappointed. Don't expect all the bells and whistles which come with more expensive laptops as you just don't get them on Chromebooks. This is a functional workhorse which does exactly what it say on the tin. Great battery life, easy to use and good value for money.
