As the Chromebook slowly gains momentum, Acer hopes to get more folks onto the Cloud with the recently-announced Acer Chromebook 15, the world’s first 15.6-inch web-based notebook platform.
The specs are pretty manageable: it runs on either a 5th Generation Intel Core i3 or a next-generation Celeron, with an option for a 16GB or a 32GB internal storage. It comes with a 1920×1080 or a 1366×768 display, but you may want to go for the former, since it would be a shame to go any less with a 15-inch screen.
You won’t have any problems regarding wireless connectivity as it hooks up via a MIMO 2x2Wifi 802.11ac. It also features Bluetooth 4.0, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, and an SD card reader.
The Acer Chromebook 15 is sturdy but light, as it weighs only 2.2kg and is touted to have been reinforced to stand bumps and a few drops. Battery-wise, it can give you a full day’s worth of juice on standard use.
Prices of the Acer Chromebook 15 will start at $249.99 (approximately Php11,220.00). Availability will soon be announced.
