I'm replacing my ACER Chromebook (CB5-571-C09S) with a newer model that hasn't reached the AUE date - I'm looking in the Acer Store and on Amazon - how can I determine the AUE date for a Chromebook ??

    Note that I do not have any of the new Chromebooks I'm looking at in my hands, so I can't look at "About Chrome OS", "Additional Details"

    AUE is typically 8 years from introduction, though with older models it was shorter than that. I believe it was 6.5 years for your CB5-571 back in 2015. The only way to tell for sure is to look on the system after you get it though.

    From the gist of the original post; all anyone needs to know is that you buy a new computer; the first time it's turned on and the operating system sets up while you are logged into a wifi network or some other connection; the clock starts. If there are computers people buy new but reach it's update expiration shortly after purchase; it's still a computer worth having so long as there are no signiciant issues with it.

    I'm not positive, but I believe the clock starts when the model is first shipped, not when the unit is first purchased. That's because an individual unit might sit on the shelf for a long time before being sold...
