" Acer has been at the forefront of Chromebook manufacturers with a wide variety of products to meet the needs of our customers, and we are now expanding our line to new 15 models," said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer. " The new Acer Chrome 15" Full HD screens are ideal for collaborating on work and school projects, enjoying streaming media and running the latest applications. The Acer Chromebook Spin 15 is the first to combine a 15.6 "screen with a convertible design so customers can use the device in different ways ."
The Acer Chromebook Spin 15 is the first convertible Chromebook on the market and is equipped with a 15.6 "screen and hinge design at 360 °. The model features Full HD screen with IPS technology, Gorilla Glass protection and touch interface that can handle commands with up to 10 fingers at a time. The screen is complemented with up-stream stereo speakers optimized for multimedia experiences. 360 ° hinges allow the touch screen to rotate until it opens completely and is ready for use as a large tablet. The convertible design allows you to quickly manipulate the keyboard to be used in traditional notebook mode. In addition, users can use display or tent mode for reduced spaces, such as airplane space.
Chromebook Spin 15 uses an Intel Pentium N4200 quad-core processor or dual-core Celeron N3450 / N3350, powered by 4GB or 8GB of RAM, respectively 32GB or 64GB of storage (budget-based). The portable is equipped with a completely passive cooling system, so the noise in use is zero. Chromebook Spin 15 promises up to 13 hours of use time, enough for intermittent use throughout the day
The Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and the Acer Chromebook 13 are equipped with a 13.5 "Full HD + 2256×1504 screen. The 3: 2 aspect ratio of the screen provides a larger 18% vertical space compared to a regular FHD display. Similar to the 15 "model, Spin 13 can also be used in tablet mode with the screen folded back on the case
Chromebook Spin 13 comes with the Wacom EMR stylus. It allows users to sketch, write ideas and interact with programs and applications more precisely than would be possible with the touch screen interface
