Designed for working in bright-light conditions, the large 14 narrow 7.3mm display of the Acer Chromebook 314 is ideal for greater productivity. With a long battery life, a fast Intel® CPU and fast Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)connection it gets users online in an instant. Low power usage and responsive software are provided by the latest Intel® processor. The extra performance makes highly graphical classroom projects run smoother so tasks are performed quicker. Designed for portable convenience, this Chromebook™ is smaller than a sheet of A4 paper and weighs just around 1 kg. Slide it in to small bags and take it out when you need it. 10 hours of battery life goes a long way. With just a single charge, get in a full days work with time to spare. The powerful long lasting battery means you dont have to take the power adapter with you. A strong, consistent wireless signal is provided by Intel® Gigabit Wi-Fi and the strategically placed Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) wireless antenna with 2x2 MU-MIMO. MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output) is a standard that offers faster wireless speeds and can handle more wireless devices at once.
A higher-resolution display does use more battery. We logged 8.82 hours of life from the Chromebook 14's 3-cell, 3950mAh pack, using Cr-XPRT 2015's benchmark. That's a good amount of time, though not as long as Acer's promise of up to 12 hours.
I never expect to like a laptop's speakers, which is why the Acer Chromebook 14's deserve mention for being surprisingly good. The dual set, nestled underneath the left and right sides, provide good bass and stereo effects. You might still plug in external headphones, but at least your laptop won't sound like a cyber-chipmunk if you have to use its speakers for a presentation.
Basically, power users will need more power, which Acer does offer with its Chromebook 14 for Work that has Core i-series processors, better graphics and more memory as well as a sturdier case and spill-resistant keyboard.
Acer claims a battery life up to 12 hours for this configuration (14 hours for versions with an HD screen). We hit 9.5 hours with our streaming video test, which is in line with what Acer told us to expect using wireless to rundown the battery. Playing video on the laptop, you should be able get to that 12-hour mark, but it's safe to say you'll get about 10 hours with mixed use.
