Back in mid-October, Google revealed its first three Chromebooks officially designed for game streaming. At the time, I wondered if a gaming Chromebook actually made sense or if this was just another rushed idea that wasn’t fully ready for prime time. As it turns out, the answer is a little bit of both.

Over the last nearly two months, I’ve had the opportunity to use the Acer Chromebook 516GE as my primary machine for work and play.
