Acer has officially introduced their Chromebook 15 and it has delivered in a number of categories. The Chromebook 15 is an expansion on the notion that the future of personal computing could definitely be in a device similar to this. The Chromebook operating system is focused on delivering a highly-engaging experience that focuses on web-browsing and productivity. Now though, Acer moves to make this type of platform work for professionals, as well as those who are using the devices for recreational purposes.
It was no secret that Chromebook’s far outperformed their Apple driven competitors – largely due to price throughout 2014 – many leaning heavily on the fact that Chromebook’s outperformed iPad’s when it came to sales.
The newest edition to the Chromebook family is the Acer Chromebook 15 and it delivers a larger, more-impressive screen, faster processor, and better options when it comes to memory – while keeping the entire package affordable – starting at $250. Weighing in a 4.85 pounds, it might sound hefty, but the specifications seem to be equally hefty – for those who wonder where the weight is going. A full HD display that boasts 1920×1080 resolution, as well as another HD option measuring in with a 1366×768 resolution display. Both displays bring anti-glare properties to ensure that the device will function well in any light – including those scenarios where there might be a little too much light. Bluetooth 4.0, super-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and HDMI support – along with USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports available on the Chromebook 15 – the list of impressive specifications seems to continue on forever.
However, the most-impressive of the specifications don’t have anything to do with the added features or Wi-Fi specifications, but some of the most-basic specifications that the device packs inside it. The Chromebook 15 brings 16GB and 32GB storage options, with a choice between 2GB, or 4GB of RAM. Those who are in the market to buy a Chromebook 15 will also have options when it comes to the processor that’s packed inside. It will come with either a 5th Generation Intel Core i3 processor or a next generation Intel Celeron processor.
