It’s always nice when you can buy a new laptop that comes with a few extras. It’s something I’ve started seeing a lot more when buying a Chromebook. Providing the Chromebook in question is something you’re looking for. Choosing a laptop that comes in a bundle with a few extras is a great way of saving money. Also, some of these extras are something you may not spend money on but are still valuable. What I mean by this, I would not spend my own money on a laptop bag but would be happy to use one if offered for free.
So to check whether this deal is something you may be interested in. Let’s take a closer look at whether this Chromebook offers something you may be interested in.
ACER 15.6 INCH CHROMEBOOK
The Chromebook included in this bundle is a 15.6-inch Acer Chromebook. One of the largest laptops you can get your hands on. This means it may not be suitable for everyone. However, if you’re looking for a laptop with a huge 15.6-inch display, then this may be perfect for your needs. Anyone who needs a laptop to work on spreadsheets will be happy with the larger display.
The great thing is Acer has taken full advantage of the extra space. If you’re going to use such a large display it makes sense to make the most of the extra space the keyboard has to offer. They’ve done this by providing a separate number pad, which is another reason why this is perfect for number crunching. I don’t know about you, but I can type in numbers much quicker with a separate number pad than using the keys at the top of the keyboard.
It does not offer a touchscreen, so it isn’t going to be the right laptop for anyone who needs this functionality. I did an article recently about whether you need a touchscreen for a Chromebook. This will help you decide whether this is something you should be considering.
ACER BAG AND MICRO SD CARD INCLUDED
The added extras are pretty decent when you consider the price of this bundle. The Acer laptop bag included looks pretty decent. It comes in a nice cool dark grey and a separate zip compartment is available for any of your accessories. Buying a bag like this separately would set you back at least $30, so definitely a great bonus that it’s an added extra.
The 64 GB Micro SD card is great for anyone who needs more storage. The Chromebook itself only comes with 32 GB. Although this isn’t too bad, it isn’t lots of storage if you like to store files locally. Adding the SD card will triple the storage you have available. However, you need to remember the Chromebook is a cloud computer, so it’s best to store all your files in the cloud where possible.
