Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage
4GB RAM and 32GB storage is in the higher end of Chromebooks
The Tegra K1ARM processor allows for passive cooling which means no fans or fan noise.
Pro Available with Full 1080p HD screen
The Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T1UU has a 1920x1080 full HD matte display.
Pro Sleek and stylish design
The square matte white minimal look of the device gives off an air of sofistication though will probably still not be confused with a $2,000 laptop.
Con nVidia K1 CPU/GPU rather slow, not on par with Intel Atom N2840/2830, let alone Intel Celeron or Intel i3
In benchmark tests the nVidia chip just does not run as well as Intel's chips.
Con No Intel, but ARM-based CPU, means some web apps may not run
With the processor being ARM based, some Chrome apps may not run as the architecture is not supported yet.
Con Keyboard squeaks and bends around the letters R-T-Z / D-F-G-H / C-V-B
Con Full HD screen may be too high-res for your eyesight, everything is just very small.
Resolution adjustment is only available in beta ChromeOS and works less than perfectly. Only browser content may be zoomed easily.
Con Can be pretty expensive for a Chromebook
Full HD version with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage is EUR 350 / USD 350 which is definitely on the high side for a Chromebook without an Intel Celeron / i3 CPU.
Con Currently no support replacing Chrome OS with Linux
Chromebooks that are using the Tegra K1 processors (such as the Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T1UU) are unable to install Linux, replacing Chrome OS on the hard drive due to the imitation of SeaBios lacking support for the eMMC used with said processors.
This however does not affect installing Ubuntu through Crouton.
Con Rather heavy with 3.3lb
3.3lbs is on the heavier side for a Chromebook.
Con Full HD screen not very bright, dull, bad viewing angles and bluish
Display washes out when viewed at an angle. This is most likely caused by cheap screens that the manufacturers use to keep costs down on these devices.
