  • Q: So are you saying you cannot use android apps for this chromebook? Where do you get apps then?  (6 Answers)

    By BARON 

    • Best answerTrue, Android apps do not currently run on the Acer R11. Presently you can run web based programs through your browser and the limited Chrome browser extensions and Chrome OS apps as shown in the Chrome OS Store. However, within 2 months you will be able to download the Google Play Store with access to all Android apps. The Acer R11 is the second Chromebook receiving this ability through the Chrome OS. Once that's done, you will have all the functionality Google has to offer.

    • Best answerSearch Best Buy's website for the model CB5-132T-C8ZW and it's on sale right now (Lucky You) for $259 I checked the reviews on this Chromebook at websites CNET PCMAG and LAPTOPMAG and all of the versions of this laptop had the 4 GB RAM The professional reviewers mentioned both Best Buy and Costco as having the 4 GB and I verified it on both websites. I also went to ACERs website and it showed BEST BUY one of the online sellers that had 4 GB and ACER's website also had a series of check boxes for options This model ACER CB5 had both options 2 GB (Amazon's version) and 4 GB (Best Buy) Some of the Amazon reviewers are complaining about performance issues, and I'd bet it's due to the RAM being only 2 GB on Amazon's model. (Sure I'd rather have 8 GB but that isn't an option with this one) I bought mine w 4 GB from Best Buy online and am happy with it so far. I have this as a backup to my only other pc which is a Windows 7 Desktop (with ClassicShell installed) To find other sellers, do an internet search for ACER CB5 132T C1SY 2-IN-1 TOUCH SCREEN CHROMEBOOK QUADCORE 4GB MEMORY

  • Q: Can This Laptop be good for kids?  (2 Answers)

    By Madsy 

    • Best answerYes, this is one of the best chrome books for kids as it is an all aluminum case just like a Mac and it will spread shock (like from dropping it) throughout the material and not the internal components. With it being next in line for android support that opens it up to touch screen gaming as well and just to give you further proof my 4 year old has a chromebook and loves it. I will be getting this model for myself and my brother and dad already have and they are both power users!

  • Q: This is the R11 that will be compatible when Google adds Android apps and the store later on this year correct?  (3 Answers)

    By TheCROW 

    • Best answerI just bought this laptop at Best Buy yesterday. I just updated to Chrome OS 53 and, lo and behold, the Google Play store (beta) option is now there in Settings and I enabled it, downloaded the Play store and started downloading apps. It might be that the fact that it still shows as beta explains why this model is not listed as having Android app compatability but, I don't care as I got what I wanted and I am satisfied with my purchase.

    • Best answerI have the N3050 model and haven't had any problems with everything I've thrown at it. I have multiple tabs opens running video, music and editing documents and don't notice any lag. There is an interesting Reddit writing that shows the N3050 receiving higher Octane test rating than the N3150. Hope this helps...
