The Acer Chromebook 15 CB5-571-C1DZ is the first ever Chromebook with a 15.6″ full HD IPS display. This is the “big daddy” of Chromebooks. If you’re looking for a Chromebook that can replace your desktop or laptop this one is worth checking out. It’s also the first ever Chromebook to feature Intel’s latest Broadwell micro-architecture CPU providing more speed and power than ever before. This is a top-of-the-line laptop that will only cost you about $100 more than a low end model.
One of the biggest gripes people have with older Chromebooks is the fact that they lack crisp, clear displays. The 1920×1080 full HD display on the Acer Chromebook 15 CB5-571-C1DZ leaves very little to be desired. Other Chromebooks might have full HD displays, but why would you want that on an 11 inch screen? This 15.6″ screen gives you full HD without making everything look tiny.
This new Chromebook from Acer is the first of its kind to feature Intel’s new Broadwell micro-architecture CPUs. You get all the power of a regular laptop or desktop with the mobility that only a Chromebook can provide. They even offer models with Intel’s i3 and i5 chips to give you even more power on the go. You can even upgrade to 4 GB of ram and 32 GB of storage on this device.

This is still a relatively new item on Amazon but it has already received many glowing reviews. At the time of writing this review, there we about 150 customer reviews posted with an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars with 2 out of 3 reviewers giving it 5 out of 5 stars. With such a stunning display and impressive specs there’s no wonder why people love it.
The Acer Chromebook 15 CB5-571-C1DZ is definitely more of a standard laptop/desktop replacement than anything else. If you’re looking for true portability a smaller Chromebook might be better. However, it does have all the power you’ll ever need and an impressive LED backlit IPS screen. If you’re looking for a Macbook Air replacement for a fraction of the cost, I would highly recommend this Chromebook.
