“The Chromebook 14 is the Acer’s first in the segment with a premium all-metal design”
Acer has expanded its range of Chrome OS-powered laptops with the launch of the Chromebook 14. It is the company’s first Chromebook to flaunt a premium all-metal design, which looks quite similar to the Apple Macbook Air. The vendor is touting the device as the first Chromebook to deliver long battery life of up to 14 hours.
The Acer Chromebook 14 comes with a 14-inch HD IPS display. The notebook is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Celeron processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The device sports 16GB of onboard memory, and comes with connectivity options including two USB 3.1 ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and HDMI. The device also sports an HD webcam. There’s also a higher-end variant of the Chromebook 14 that sports a full HD display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. This model offers 12 hours of battery life.
The Acer Chromebook 14 full HD edition has been priced at $299.99, which roughly is around Rs 19,800. The notebook is up for pre-order in the US on Amazon. It is being bundled with 100GB of cloud storage on Google Drive.
