Acer hosted an event today where it launched the highly anticipated Chromebook 13 and Chromebook 13 Spin. To make things even better, the tech giant also decided to use today’s event as an opportunity to announce the even bigger 15-inch Chromebook models which will be launched in the upcoming future.
Chromebook Spin 15 and Chromebook 15
Chromebook Spin 15 is going to be premium model and it is targeted towards customers who love watching video content on their Chromebooks. On the other hand, Acer said that Chromebook 15 will be the device that appeals to customers who are looking for “value-oriented” devices.
The first thing we need to mention about Chromebook Spin 15 is that as its name implies, it ships with a 15.6-inch IPS display which features a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. Moreover, the display features the Acer trade mark touchscreen which can spin 360-degrees. This feature is awesome because it allows Acer fans to use the Chromebook in tablet, tent, and different display modes.
Another important feature that Chromebook Spin 15 will feature is a large trackpad. The interesting thing about the trackpad is that it’s coated in Corning Gorilla Glass which doesn’t only make the surface smoother, but it also protects it from scratches and cracks.
Battery Life and CPU Power
Since we are talking about a Chromebook, the battery life is quite important. Luckily, Chromebook Spin 15 is equipped with a battery that’s able to last for 13 hours. Not just that, but the Chromebook is also available in the following processor variants: Intel Pentium N4200, Celeron N3450 and Celeron N3350.
As previously mentioned, Acer said that Chromebook Spin 15 will be the premium model and that it will cater to customers who love a premium media watching experience. With that said, the laptop will be available for purchase starting July and it will cost $499.
