If you’ve been considering buying a Chromebook, but can’t decide which model to go for, you might want to check out Acer’s latest offering. Announced this week, the Chromebook 13 promises extra-long battery life, impressive visual performance, and the option of a full HD display.
What sets the Chromebook 13 apart from it’s competitors, is the fact that it’s the first Chromebook powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 mobile processor. Ultimately, this should make it more capable when it comes to graphically intensive tasks, compared to rival Intel and Samsung-powered machines.
It comes in two 13-inch screen configurations – a 1366 x 768 version, which Acer says will run for an impressive 13 hours on a single charge, and a 1920 x 1080 full HD version, which promises a not too shabby 11 hours.
With regards to the other specifications, you can choose between either a lower or higher resolution screen model with 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SDD, or a higher resolution model with 4GB of RAM and a 32GB SDD. All versions have two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, 802.11ac WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The 1366 x 768 Chromebook 13 retails for $279, while the two 1920 x 1080 configurations retail for $299.99 and $379.99. All are available to pre-order from Acer’s website.
