I have been blogging for over 13 years now and have been through a few computers over the years!

When I was approached to partner on this blog post, I was very excited because I had done some research into Chromebooks*, but hadn’t purchased a new laptop in the last few years.

The Acer Chromebook* Core™ i3 is available from Walmart. <–super convenient & priced great!

Chromebooks* powered by Intel® Core™ processors provide super-fast and snappy performance. With up to 4x faster web browsing, 8x faster document loading, and 2x faster uploading of videos, Chromebooks* with Intel® Core™ inside delivers the processing power that everyone on your list will appreciate.

Woot!  I adore an easy gift decision.

Unboxing Walmart Acer Chromebook

My Chromebook* arrived in a Walmart box full of air cushions…

Nestled inside all that fun was the Acer Chromebook box.

Truthfully, I was thinking about this being MY holiday gift.  Once I started playing around with it, I saw how it would be a perfect solution for my kids as well.

Ryan is a freshman in college and so much of what he needs to access is online from different locations on campus–from the dorm, to class and on to study groups.  He would appreciate the fact that Chromebook* starts in seconds and stays fast throughout the day…all day!  It has up to 8 hours** of battery life!  <–this is good since I know for a fact he forgets to charge things!

Reid is a junior in high school.  He is taking a heavy AP class load this year which means he is almost always in the middle of writing a paper.  The 8x faster* document loading would make things easier.  He would also appreciate the automatic updates and backups and how all his favorite apps are available in the Google Play store.  I appreciate that we can set digital ground rules with Family Link.  Family Link allows me to manage apps and websites, set screen time limits and even remotely lock devices…not that it would ever come to that {giggle}.

Rhett is in eighth grade this year and is in need of a laptop that he can take to school.  The Family Link capability is key for his safety.  I also appreciate the military-grade durability for him.  

Setting up Acer Laptop

The set up was incredibly easy. 

Normally, I wouldn’t touch setting up a computer because my husband is better at that and I am not very “tech-y”.  But I just followed along with a series of about 5 questions and before I knew it, I was signed into Google and surfing the internet.

Blogging with Acer Chromebook

As a blogger, the 2x faster uploading of videos* and the 4x faster web browsing* is a no-brainer. 

Helping me get work done faster is such a bonus!

No matter how you wrap it…or if it even gets under the tree, the Acer Chromebook Core™ i3 is sure to be a hit.  It is an incredible value at Walmart for $379.00.  <–Isn’t Everyday Low Pricing awesome?

Happy shopping!
