Acer adds four Chromebooks to its catalog, one of them with a 17.3-inch screen


Revolution in the Acer laptop catalog that has presented quite a few models in different categories and, logically, has also presented several models of Chromebook. Specifically, Acer has launched six new computers with Google's laptop operating system, Chrome OS, two of them designed for the normal user and four of them focused on the business sector.



In the way in which Acer divides its new presentations, we find the 'Home Use' with the Acer Chromebook 317 and Chromebook 315 and the 'For Business' with the rest of the models in which we have another Spin, a Chromebook 514 and two variants with last name Enterprise and the professional version of ChromeOS. Let's see what each of them brings us.





A pair of Acer Chromebooks for the home

We started with the Chromebook 317, a laptop with Chrome OS and 17.3 inches of FullHD screen with a 16: 9 ratio. We can choose a Pentium Silver N6000 processor, a Celeron N5100 or a Celeron N4500 and we will have LPDDR4X RAM with up to 8GB, and up to 128GB of eMMC storage. The laptop weighs 2.35 kilos and promises up to 10 hours of autonomy.



According to Acer, the Chromebook 317 becomes the industry's first laptop with Chrome OS and a 17.3-inch screen, "the ideal model for users who work and learn from home", making it clear that the laptop is also valid for developing professional tasks although its main focus is at home.

On the other hand, the Chromebook 314 bet on 14-inch screens with 1,368 x 768 and FullHD options, and a single processor to choose from, the MediaTek M8183C. In memory we have 8GB of RAM and 64GB of space for a laptop weighing 1.5 kilos and that promises up to 15 hours of autonomy, which is not bad at all.

We have several 11th generation Intel Core processors, from an i3 to an i7, and we have up to 16GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal PCIe gen3 storage.
