Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE (2024) Full Review in Detail!

The Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE is a refresh of the first gaming Chromebook, a title I thought to be functionally useless until I tried out the laptop for myself.

The new version is a fine upgrade as the specs have all been improved (and doubled in some cases), it sports an excellent display, and the keyboard and touchpad are still great.

However, the sound quality is still awful and though affordable for a gaming machine it's on the pricey side for a Chromebook.

In early 2023 I reviewed Google's first dedicated gaming Chromebook, the Acer Chromebook 516 GE, and it changed my mind about Chromebooks and gaming.

So I was excited to get my hands on the long-awaited refresh, the Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE (2024).

The Chromebook has been upgraded in every meaningful way, from the display to the specs, and even has new AI features included for those looking to double it as a productivity machine.
