When it comes to design, the Acer Chromebook 714 is a practical-looking laptop. It sports an all-aluminum, dark-gray chassis that deters fingerprints. Its lid is adorned with both a silver Acer logo and a black Chrome emblem. The laptop's keyboard deck features a small oval-shaped fingerprint reader, a rare and refreshing find on a Chromebook.
