According to recent data from NPD Group, Acer Chromebooks led the way in the US consumer market in Q1 2014 with 46.7 percent market share(1)
Acer launched its first Chromebook in 2011, the Acer AC700, and was one of the first companies to offer such devices. Since their introduction, Acer Chromebooks have received wide acclaim from consumers and media alike. Most recently, The Verge declared the Acer C720P Chromebook the winner in its feature “The Best Chromebook You Can Buy”, while the Acer C720 Chromebook was named a winner by Tech and Learning at its annual ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Best of Show Awards. The C720P is also currently ranked No. 1 on the Amazon Top Rated list of laptop computers(2).
Acer Chromebooks utilize Chrome OS to give customers access to everything they need to be productive, stay in touch, and be informed. Chrome OS is updated automatically, so it always has the latest features and multiple layers of security. Acer Chromebook users can have separate user accounts to ensure their project, Gmail and other information is kept safe if the Chromebook is lost, stolen, or lent to a friend. This makes the Chromebook ideal for situations where the device will be used by multiple users, such as in educational settings and at home.
