Acer Chromebook R13 opinions

HiroyuYulinHiroyuYulin Member Posts: 2 New User

Anyone using this chromebook in 2020?, I'm looking for a chromebook for my mom and found someone selling this model for $100usd. I need it to be able to handle web browsing, MS office and video calls but I've seen it uses a MediaTek CPU, so I'm not sure if it runs well or it's laggy.

I also read somewhere that it can run android apps, does it run them pretty well or it's limited to some certain apps?

Any opinion/recommendation is welcome.

Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, in order to give a meaningful answer we need to have the full model number. There have been a lot of different R13s...
