Chromebook Vs. Chromebook: Measuring Acer's C910, C740

The massive Chromebook 15 C910 dominates in size and processing power, but the smaller C740 wins for on-the-go productivity.

Power 
The C910 comes with a Broadwell Intel Core i5-5200U CPU, giving the device extra power for its larger display. The C740 runs on the Intel Celeron 3205U dual-core processor, which is not quite as powerful but should run fine, so long as you don't overload it with too many tabs and apps running at the same time.

Re: School Computer
@JediSQL I'm still trying to get over the fact that they required Chromebooks for third graders - what?! That aside, the C720 seems like a great machine for a kid. Inexpensive and built to withstand bumps and drops.
