A Great Budget Option , Acer Chromebook 314,BUDGET FRIENDLY

 


ACER 314 LAPTOP

Hello and welcome to the most recent Untitled Reviews publication. Now, if you mention the word "chromebook" to someone, there's a good chance they'll form an image of a cheap laptop that isn't particularly powerful and doesn't look the part. 

With this chromebook 314, which might be among the best chromebooks available for those on a particularly tight budget, we aim to kind of knock that stereotype out of the park or at least one specific part of it.

Unlike many other ASUS chromebooks, this one has a particularly standard lineup, including a dual core seller on n4000 from Intel, as I've said, four gigs of ram, 32 gigs of onboard double mc memory, and all for a relatively low price. However, where this thing does win against other chromebooks in its class is the fact that it doesn't look as standard. We'll get to that shortly. The Chromebook 314 does look to be an incredible laptop for really not a very large outlet, but if you prefer it with a full HD IPS panel or even 64 gigs of storage, then Acer has you covered as well. First things first, let's talk about design. I mentioned in the introduction that the Chromebook 314 doesn't necessarily look like it should be a Chromebook, and indeed this is largely due to its rather solid construction and its rather nice steely blue exterior.

      Well built with this nice steely blue finish making it standout from the swathes of silver and black models of chromebooks windows laptops and mac os laptops that are found elsewhere it's kind of like  those old hp laptops that you used to find on the ends  the racks and curries manY many years ago that used to come in kind of these bright blues, greens, pinks and yellows and all sorts so it's nice to see acer kind of almost paying homage to that by going for 

      What is rather a non-standard color now with a weight of 1.7 kilos though by comparison to like the spin 513 and other kind of more ultrabook-like chromebooks it feels pretty hefty but given the fact that it is relatively slim anyway this still remains rather portable indeed. otherwise other than that to be honest there's not necessarily much to say about the design of this specific chromebook It is solidly constructed and stands out from the sea of chromebooks, Windows laptops, and Mac laptops that are everywhere else thanks to its attractive steely blue colour. 

It's nice to see Acer kind of paying homage to that by choosing what is now a rather non-standard color with a weight of 1.7 kilos though by comparison to like the spin 513 and other kind of more ultrabook-like chromebooks it feels lighter.

activity that requires models in the spectrum for both your work or school and home browsing This model have incredibly immersive displays, and the 14-inch model I'm holding here will be used to charge the device so you can take it wherever you go. It also has a microSD card reader and an audio jack. The 314 has a full HD 1080p display with wide viewing angles and 64 gigabytes of storage.

The speakers on this particular Chromebook sound fairly good for the price reasonably okay with dual downward-facing  laptops that are mounted on the underside, so aside from the fact that it's relatively sturdy—I can tell by knocking on it, so don't worry it hasn't been marked before you before you get concerned—it looks the part, feels the part, and is portable as well, making it ideal for students on a budget.or a blanket of any kind if you're using it on your bed, but if you've got it on a hard surface like a table or a desk, where it probably should be, then you should  be covered relatively well here. Otherwise, they sound okay and arguably expected for the price, just don't expect anything like a stereo that you could buy for roughly a similar outlet. I'm happy to say, however, that unlike sounding speakers that the keyboard and trackpad that The gift on the 314 does, in fact, outperform its price range; it doesn't seem at all flimsy, feels very substantial, and is again fairly quiet, though if you do happen to have it. You might receive a few noise complaints if it goes on for a long period, but only from folks who are extremely picky. There are just enough keys, including arrow buttons, on the right-hand side so you can type an essay if you want to. It has a layout that is pretty small. The touchpad on the 314 is a decent size; in fact, it's a really, really huge trackpad for a laptop. It even outperforms the trackpads of slightly older Mac-book models, and this is probably about the size of what you would have received on a 2015 Mac-book Air, which I used to own and still possess and am currently using as a backup device. However, the trackpad here is again nicely firm and comfortable and made of some gorilla glass once more, so it feels smooth and solid to the touch. It would have been quite easy for Acer to have cut corners and provided you with a small quantity of ports given that this is a budget Chromebook that costs only 230 grid. However, the trackpad on the Chromebook 314 from Acer is really amazing. I'm happy to say that they haven't, and there are two fast USB ports that can also be used for charging. There are two USB  ports, a micro SD card reader, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a Kensington lock, and, to be honest, you might be asking where the display output is since there isn't an HDMI port. There is no vga display port or dvi for many devices. The fact that acer has included a really nice selection of modern and indeed legacy options that just offer a great amount of compatibility is absolutely fantastic; however, given that this is a budget laptop, you probably won't be hooking it up , and to a display screen to load any presentations off anytime soon. 

This is a mobile computing beast, so you really do have to hand it to as for kissing out the 314 properly in this specific specification. If you're searching for something with a fairly full HD display, you're out of luck because the Chromebook 314 is only capable of displaying images at a resolution of 1366 by 768, which is just slightly beyond what would be considered acceptable in this day and age. This rather low resolution isn't likely ideal for a 14-inch screen, which is probably plenty big enough anyhow. 

This can make things look a little bit fuzzy if the gaps between the pixels are noticeable on a display that isn't full HD anyway. You'll probably notice this when watching any videos, be they from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, or any other services. I wouldn't recommend using this laptop to binge watch hours of, say, James May's Armor and Japan because it's definitely its worst weakness, and even on its brightest setting, the 314 can look a little bit dim at times, which could be troublesome. In order to protect my eyes and prevent the 314 display from looking out of place, I wouldn't recommend using the laptop outside on a sunny day. However, viewing angles were decent, as you'll see, Colors can look a little bit flat, though, making for what is only a passable viewing experience. As is customary with most laptops, you undoubtedly want to be able to see everything on the screen. The fact that this particular budget laptop has relatively thin bezels for the price also means that it looks rather modern as well. This is followed by the fact that this has a 14-inch screen, which is ideal for any compact laptops for productivity purposes. Just don't go too far either way and larger things. Given that this Chromebook costs 230 pounds, there aren't really any expectations for the 314 to produce zany performance figures within any benchmarks or go beyond what it is fundamentally meant to do. However, it should be noted that the 314 screen isn't touch enabled, which is a shame for a Chromebook that could arguably be used for those kind of more phone-like tasks, if you will. Given that it is a Chromebook, it is primarily there to do the essentials well. I'm delighted to report that the ASUS budget beast once again performs exactly what it says on the label, with its Intel processor on the 4000 offering a respectable performance presently. and rather snappy user experience it's 4 gigs of ram is great for web browsing and video viewing even opening a load of chrome tabs didn't cause this thing to falter particularly too much only caused images really to take that little bit longer to load but overall that slowdown's pretty negligible considering you're paying the price of an xbox series for a pretty much fully fledged computer but what i will say though is that you do have to be realistic with what you want laptops do that's not just true for chrome-books but for windows or mac os based laptops as well it fundamentally lives miles behind any of its windows-based counterparts that can cost double the price and is even slower than some of those slightly different chromebooks out there like lenovo's chromebook duet which is really just a tablet at the end of the day basically what this means is that you've got to stick with the basics for any  chromebook be this particular 314 from acer or any of them and of course it is worth also noting that because this thing does run chrome os. it's not necessarily as flexible as windows which means that you're limited to not only what's available on the google play store really speaking what google actually support for chromebooks and what apps have been in general that shouldn't be a problem if you want to use anything mainstream which is probably what you're going to be using this for  so just bear in mind as to what this thing is actually designed for but at the end of the day for a 229 quid laptop you don't expect more than the basics and i'm happy to say that this particular chromebook does those absolutely brilliantly well now in that last section i said not to expect too much from that chromebook 314 just given the fact that it's it costs 230 quid but to be honest given the battery life you could be forgiven for thinking that it's a 500 750 or even a thousand pound laps i've given the fact that it lasts 13 and a half hours on a single charge when you just run a video and play it back which is actually means that it's pretty much capable of lasting a few working days from 100 to zero and with that the 314 does continue to cement itself as one of the best budget machines out there as well as being one of the best chromebooks out there with regards to battery life as i said previously batteries really should be lasting around 10 hours in any given laptop so for this thing to last 13 and a half hours means that it's absolutely incredible and it's rather impressive some more amd ryzen-based laptops have admittedly reached higher figures than this and but those are also two to three times the price of this plucky little chromebook so if you're after something with fantastic battery life and but just adequate performance then this chromebook 314 is a pretty good option as well so ,in conclusion then is this acer chromebook 314 worth a pickup well if you're somebody that wants a budget chromebook that's not going to burn a hole in your wallet at all and that looks the part has decent build quality and port selection and incredible battery life then you really won't go wrong here at all if you want something that's going to do the basics well such as web browsing opening emails then this particular acer chromebook represents brilliant value for money although what i will say is it's not the best thing in the world of course it's not really powerful enough for kind of heavier workloads such as gaming content creation, video editing all those sorts of things or if you want something that's going to have a properly full hd display then you're better off looking elsewhere but fundamentally this gets the the untitled seal of approval as it were for a properly budget chromebook that offers decent performance and a fantastic battery life to boot.

 well there should be some posts down there that we hope you find interesting and engaging on all sorts of tech n health matters.

 Thank you very much for reading.
