Acer has introduced a new Chromebook model and it marks two firsts for the company.
It is the company’s first Chromebook with a 13-inch screen and it is also the first Chromebook design powered by Nvidia’s new Tegra K1 SoC.
Acer decided to offer the Chromebook 13 in two very different flavours. There’s a 1920x1080 version along with a 1366x768 one. Since the Tegra K1 boasts a powerful 192-core GPU, it should have no trouble handling either resolution.
Acer Europe marketing exec John Miedema described the new Chromebook 13 as an “ideal device for families” who need an additional computer. He stressed that the Chromebook 13 can deliver all-day battery life, roughly 13 hours. The 1080p version can hit 11.5 hours.
The Chromebook 13 is 1.7cm thick and it weighs 1.5kg. It sports 802.11ac connectivity, two USB 3.0 ports.
