University life and an affordable 15-inch laptop are almost synonymous. While most campus students will go with a Windows machine, you might be better off with something that runs on Chrome Operating System. Meet the Acer Chromebook 15, the first cloud-based machine to come packing a 15.6-inch screen and a Broadwell processor.
Not only does this laptop also come as a well equipped and fully capable machine for multi-tasking, it has a positively radiant screen that's perfect for long HD movies. Acer has leveraged all it's past experience making Chromebooks to create a solid package, one that jumps over nearly all the hurdles early Chrome OS machines struggled with.
The laptop's entire plastic exterior is also wrapped in a net-like texture. The entire laptop has been given this finish including the lid, bottom and even the on the back of the screen hinges. So, no matter how you're carrying around the Chromebook 15, you'll have a bit more to grip onto. This woven finish also just feels much warmer than a slab of smooth plastic.
