Acer’s Chromebooks have been known for their affordability and price point, but the company wants to be appreciated for its options, too.
That’s why the company is keeping its competitive edge while offering three new Chromebook models – all with a 13.3-inch display, which is a first for the company.
As with most tech products these days, Acer offers two major choices: a high-end model and a low-end model. The low-end Acer Chromebook 13 will feature a 1366 x 768 screen resolution, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory storage. The high-end Acer Chromebook 13 will come with a Full HD screen resolution (1920 x 1080), 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory storage. All three Acer Chromebook 13 models will use Nvidia’s Tegra K1 (the same processor found in Nvidia’s gaming tablet) in addition to a quad-core, 2.1Ghz ARM Cortex A15 processor for quick application launches, gaming, and other leisure and work tasks.
To add to its power, the Chromebook 13 models will all utilize 802.11ac Wi-Fi, now the new standard in Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, 720p HD web cam, microphone, SD card slot for expandable storage, and a 3,220mAh battery.

The low-end Chromebook 13 will cost $280, the high-end model $380. If you want something a bit high-end but don’t want to shelve out $380, you can choose a semi-high-end (or mid-range) model for just $300. It involves many of the specs of the high-end model but comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of memory storage instead of 32GB (after all, it is a little more inexpensive).

Adding 13.3-inch models is a nice one, indeed. After all, there’re many consumers that like larger screens for work productivity, and the Acer Chromebook 13 models, at their price points, are sure to impress.
