The Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE is turning heads in the tech world. It delivers impressive performance, especially for cloud gaming. And it does all this for under $700.

The Chromebook Plus 516 GE starts at $649. It has features usually found in more expensive laptops. It comes with either an Intel Core Ultra 5 or Core Ultra 7 processor.

These are typically in pricier machines. The display is a sharp, 16-inch WQXGA screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. This makes for a visually pleasing and smooth experience.

The keyboard may not win awards, but the overall design works well for the price. An RGB keyboard and decent speakers add to its appeal as a gaming laptop. The Chromebook Plus 516 GE is made for cloud gaming.

So it doesn’t need a ton of local storage. The 256GB to 2TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage options and 8GB of RAM are plenty.

The device supports Wi-Fi 6E and has a 2.5G Gigabit Ethernet LAN port. This allows for different internet setups. It also has an HDMI port, one USB-A port, two USB-C ports, a headphone jack, and a Kensington lock slot.

These let you connect various peripherals. And it charges via USB-C for convenience. In tests, the Chromebook Plus 516 GE performed impressively with cloud gaming platforms.

Launching demanding titles through Steam was quick and smooth. The device was very responsive, even when running multiple apps at once. The Chromebook Plus line has several AI features built-in.

These range from generative AI wallpapers to the Google Chrome app. They are part of Google’s larger effort to improve usability and offer more than a basic Chromebook experience. The Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE defies expectations for sub-$700 laptops.
