During the BETT show over in London, Acer announced two new Chromebooks launching this April that are focused directly on the education market. They are the Acer Chromebook 512 and Chromebook Spin 512.
As you might expect being designed for use in the classroom, both Chromebooks feature a MIL-STD 810G military standard to ensure their durability for years of use to come. Acer designed the keyboard so that it's difficult to tamper with while also being easy to fix in case anything does go wrong.
Both Chromebooks feature 12-inch displays with aspect ratios of 3:2, making them better optimized for things like web pages and documents. Intel Pentium and Celeron processors are being used to power the machines, there's support for gigabit Wi-Fi, and with the Spin 512, the screen folds all the way back into a tablet mode and features Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass to keep it as clean as can be.
When the Chromebook 512 and Spin 512 launch this April, they'll cost $329.99 and $449.99, respectively.
