    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    Low-cost processor suitable for basic tasks such as internet, music, movies.
    Processor not suitable for multitasking, and computation intensive tasks such as advanced photo and video editing, etc.
    Chrome OS provides online versions of docs, simple image processing, games, etc with automatic backups and no risk of virus
    Chrome OS has limitations without an internet connection. Not suitable for users who depend on specific softwares such as photoshop, CAD, etc without an online equivalent.
    Use with old, non-cloud ready printers requires a Mac or Windows machine to set up
    Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
    Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
    Battery life is unknown.
    Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
    11.6" screen suitable for portability; too small as desktop replacement or gaming
    No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
    No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)

    I have an Acer C720 ($199) and an Acer C720P ($299) and both are amazing machines.
