Why is my Chromebook screen resolution so poor?

Episode 1494 (2:07:35)

Barb from Rancho Mirage, CA
Acer Chromebook 14"

Barb bought a Chromebook and the screen really isn't that great. Leo says that with a Chromebook under $400, corners have to be cut somewhere and it's likely the Chromebook manufacturer opted for a lower quality screen. If she paid more, she could get a better screen. The Acer 14" model Chromebook has a nice screen. Or, she could return the Chromebook and get a Chrome Box that she could use an external monitor with.
