Chromebook Review #2: The Acer CB5

If you have been using Chromebooks at all for the past few years, you have likely come across one of the excellent models from Acer.  Acer was the one of the first Chromebooks to offer an Intel Chip and the C720 and it’s variant was and still is one of the best Chromebooks to date. In fact we have one and my wife is using it as her main computer for school and surfing the web.  Acer has released many models with varying screen sizes, color options, and even touch screens.  This review is going to focus on Chromebook 13 CB5-311.  

Chromebook Review #2: The Toshiba Chromebook 2

The Toshiba Chromebook 2 is an interesting computer.  It runs Google’s ChromeOS which gives the CB2 quick updates to the newest software, and it has some really great features too.  However, there are a few issues with the CB2 as well, but for a price right around $300, it is difficult to be too hard on the CB2.  Luckily thanks to Technology Resources Advisors,  a technology hardware distributor out of Milwaukee,  I was able to test the Chromebook 2 out for a few weeks.  Technology Resources Advisors is a great company to work with and they have an amazing Chromebook leasing program if your district is looking to go 1:1.  Be sure to check them out and let’s dig into the review.
