Acer has officially launched three new Chromebook devices at the 2022 CES International Consumer Electronics Show.
The new Spin 513 is equipped with a 13.5-inch display, which is an upgrade from the 13-inch screen of the previous Spin 513, and replaces the Snapdragon 7c Compute SC7180 with the MediaTek Kompanio 1380. This new processor also has eight cores. Like all Spin models, the screen can be folded back and used as a tablet, or it can be erected on a flat surface in tent mode while watching videos.
The Chromebook 315 launched in 2019 is equipped with AMD A-series processors and a 15.6-inch display. It is one of the first Chromebooks equipped with AMD chips. However, the new Chromebook 315 uses Intel processors and you can choose Intel Celeron dual-core N4500. Yang quad-core N5100, or Pentium Silver N600. The device also uses the OceanGlass touchpad, which Acer claims is made of recyclable plastic to achieve a “glass-like texture”, in addition to an ultra-wide-angle HDR webcam.
In other respects, the Chromebook 315 still uses a 15.6-inch anti-glare display, with a 10-hour battery life, and the price is $299.99 (about 1910 yuan).
Acer’s new 314 Chromebook is the same price as the 315 at $299.99, but it uses a 14-inch anti-glare touchscreen display, and also provides the same Intel processor for users to choose from, as well as an OceanGlass touchpad and 10-hour battery life.
