I’m currently typing on the new Acer C720 Chromebook with Intel’s Core i3 processor. It’s the sixth or seventh Chromebook I’ve used in the past year, each one slightly better than the last.

The new C720 is a fine Chromebook (though I’m not convinced it’s really worth its $379 sticker price). It runs the Chrome OS operating system, a much simpler platform than Windows or OS X, and can handle multiple tabs, streaming video, and web-based gaming without much issue. It’s ever-so-slightly quicker at loading webpages thanks to its faster processor, and it can chew through web benchmarks quicker than ever. It’s still got the clacky keyboard, terrible display, tinny speakers, and ugly industrial design of the previous C720, but it’s fine for what most people expect a Chromebook to do.

But being the best Chromebook yet doesn’t do much to move the needle in the notebook world. Chromebooks have had success in the education space, but for consumers, they’re still far behind Windows laptops. According to data from industry research group NPD, Chromebooks have grown to 6 percent of consumer market share in the US since 2011. Contrast that to Windows laptops, which still make up 73 percent of the market and Mac laptops, which have grown to 21 percent from 17 percent in the same period. While Chromebooks may work fine as a secondary computer for those with larger and more powerful machines that act as daily workhorses, they still don’t fill the needs of the average consumer looking for a single computer.
