Acer took the lead among computer brands at IFA 2019 in Berlin today by announcing some new computer products including the cheap new Chromebooks that will launch in December in the US.
These are the 11.6-inch Acer Chromebook Spin 311 at $329 and Acer Chromebook 311 at $249, the 14-inch Acer Chromebook 314 at $279, and the 15.6-inch Acer Chromebook 315 at $279.
The first one, the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is a 360 degree revolving convertible that can be used in tablet modes, while the other models are notebooks/laptops with touchscreens.
Screen resolution options are HD and Full HD, with processor options being Intel Celeron N400 and Intel Celeron 4100, as well as an additional Intel Pentium Silver N5000 processor for the largest Chromebook from Acer.
Acer Chromebook 311 features a maximum of 32GB storage and 4GB RAM, the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 and 314 up to 64GB storage and 8GB RAM, and the Acer Chromebook 315 up to 128GB storage and 8GB RAM.
Battery life is between 10 hours on the smallest Chromebooks to 12.5 hours on the largest Chromebooks, so no longer than the battery life of the best Windows tablets and 2-in-1 on the market, despite Chromebooks being marketed as the world’s primary all-day battery life notebooks.
