Final thoughts:

3 years ago I sold my Mac Mini, and decided to go Chromebook all the way. Chrome OS is extremely user friendly, lag free and is perfect for my daily computing needs. The Acer Chromebook R13 is fully compatible with Google Play Store, which means you can download all your favourite Android apps and Games. And as I said on my video, the Android apps are working perfectly well and the experience is lag free. The MediaTek processor is probably not the fastest but honestly with ChromeOS you don't really need the latest Intel i5 processor! With the MediaTek processor and 4GB of RAM my Acer R13, Chromebook is working perfectly fine, and when used in tablet style it becomes a fast Android tablet! Another great bonus of this processor is the fact it is fanless which means no noise or heat! The full HD display is a nice option (it could be brighter though) and speaker sound is loud enough, which makes this convertible laptop a perfect machine for media consumption (Google Play, NEtflix, Hulu, Youtube etc...).

If you have watched my Youtube video Review and liked it, don't forget to give a thumb up (it helps a lot), and if you want to see more lifestyle-tech videos don't forget to subscribe! At this competitive price  on Amazon UK and Amazon US, I highly recommend it and honestly you should give it a try! You won't be disappointed.
