Acer Chromebook 15.6” Laptop (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Chromebooks are faster and lighter than most laptops, if only because they eschew big, clunky hard drives for an ephemeral cloud-based interface. The Chrome operating system syncs with your pre-existing Google account, where you can store everything from documents and spreadsheets to MP3 files and HD video. Better yet, you’ll be able to access these files instantly from anywhere, so long as you’re logged in to your Google account, of course.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with more than 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Faster, More Reliable WiFi
As if the name wasn’t already an indication, dual-band WiFi routers operate on two different bands. Most WiFi routers use only the common 2.4GHz band, but dual-band routers also access a stronger and less-crowded 5GHz band. As such, you’ll enjoy a faster, more reliable signal that’s ideal for those who stream HD media, play online games, or are trying to download every movie they’ve never seen.
Stays Up to Date
Chromebooks leave you alone to do your work, updating automatically so you don’t have to worry about it. This way, you’re always up to date when it comes to virus protection and the evolution of other key features.

Acer is a classic success story: it began as a husband-and-wife team with a handful of employees and grew into one of the bestselling names in laptop computers. In 2007, after acquiring both Gateway and Packard Bell, Acer was the No. 2 bestselling brand in the world for notebooks. But like many companies with humble roots, Acer has remained committed to its values, winning dozens of awards for sustainability and product design. Those two values meet in products such as recyclable notebook computers and the V6 series monitors, which were made with post-consumer recycled material. And the public notices: at the close of 2014, Acer landed a top spot on Amazon’s holiday bestseller list with its Chromebook, and the Aspire V laptop won a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice Award, promising much of what the brand is known for: “an entry-level gaming laptop with some real muscle, showing impressive performance and solid battery life without the expense of a premium system.”
