January 6, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Chromebooks are definitely gaining in popularity as of late. Google has been developing Chrome OS for quite a few years now. It’s basically an OS that revolves around the Chrome browser. And thus, it’s super lightweight, not to mention speedy. Chromebooks have basically taken over the Netbook space in recent years. With manufacturers making Chromebooks really cheap. Sometimes under $200. This Chromebook here from Acer, is the CB3. It’s a 15.6-inch Chromebook from Acer that sports 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of SSD storage. While the specs may seem a bit sad, in 2015. Remember that Chrome OS is very lightweight, so 2GB of RAM can still go along way, and with the 16GB of SSD storage, you’ll find that’s more than enough. Considering everything is stored in the cloud.

This is a cheaper version of the Acer Chromebook 15, which everyone loves. It’s got a slower processor as well, we’re looking at the Intel N2830 dual-core processor here which is also good enough to run the show, still. With it being a slimmed down version, it’s also got a slimmed down price. Normally sold at $199, right now NewEgg via eBay is selling it for just $129. Which is a very good price for this bit of kit.
