The crisp and vibrant display comes in two options. The full HD display has a 1920x1080 resolution that ensures sharp and legible text as well as vivid, clear videos and photos. It also reveals more content on screen to reduce scrolling. In addition, it has wide viewing angles, so customers can comfortably share content such as movies, e-books and games. The second option is an HD 1366x768 resolution display that is ideal for budget-minded customers. Both options are Acer ComfyView displays, so they have anti-glare properties to minimize the amount of reflecting light for less eye strain.
The Acer Chromebook 15 can be bought with a number of hardware options, including the choice of either an Intel Core i3 or a Celeron processor, 2GB or 4GB of RAM or either a 16GB or 32GB SSD for storage. The Chromebook weighs 4.85 pounds but the company has yet to reveal its specific battery life. A release date for the Chromebook was not announced.
Acer has also revealed that its older Chromebook 13, with its 13.3-inch screen, will now be available with a touchscreen display for a price of $330. The non-touchscreen model was available for the starting price of $279.99.
