By Radu Iorga

Yesterday was all about Acer and its event in USA, focused on new PCs, laptops, accessories and more. That’s where they also debuted a bunch of Chromebooks, the Acer Chromebook 714 and Acer Chromebook 715. These are enterprise-level machines, with military grade protection, fingerprint sensors and number pads.

Acer Chromebook 715 features a 15.6 inch screen with Gorilla Glass protection and also comes with a backlit keyboard, with dedicated numeric keypad. It’s got military certification of the MIL-STD 810G variety, which is useful against drops and pressure, plus moist resistant Gorilla Glass touchpads. The Chromebook 714 also has the same durability.

The difference between the models is actually the screen, since the Chromebook 714 has a 14 inch Full HD display with narrow bezels. Otherwise, they both provide up to 12 hours of life and can be powered by a range of CPUs, like the Intel Core i5 8th gen, Core i3 and even Celerons and Intel Pentium Gold options.

 

Memory and storage options are 8/16 GB for RAM and 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB for eMMC storage. Acer also offers a special USB-C Dock for plugging into workstations. Dual band WiFi ac is also here, plus Bluetooth 4.2 and Citrix Ready certifications. Acer Chromebook 715 comes in July at $499 and in EMEA in June for 599 euros.

Acer Launches 4 Chromebooks for the Education Market, with Intel and AMD CPUs

By Radu Iorga

Acer is no stranger to Chromebooks, but today they add even more to their portofolio. This time we’re dealing with 4 11.6 inch Chromebooks for the education market, with Intel Gemini Lake CPUs inside, but two of them also have AMD chips.

All of the newcomers are similarly specced in the connectivity area, with USB 3.1 Type-C ports, used for transfers, output and charging. There’s also military MIL-SPEC certification and durable designs. Optional IPS displays also make the cut. The prices go from $280 and the products will be available from Q2 2019.

Possibly the most interesting of the bunch is the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 (R721T) with AMD. The CPU of choice here is the AMD A4-9120C, with Radeon graphics and a convertible format. It’s resilient to spills and moisture and even microbes. Also with AMD, the Acer Chromebook 311 (C721) is pretty much the same hardware, but sans touchscreen and the 360 degree hinge.

It’ll sell for $280 and up.

Acer Chromebook 311 (C733) goes to Intel Celeron N4000 dual core or Celeron N4100 quad core. This is a clamshell with a spill resistant keyboard and an optional touchscreen display. There’s a $300 premium here.

 

Acer Chromebook Spin 511 (R752) has an Intel N4000/ Intel N4100 CPU and uses a 360 degree hinge to rotate around its axis. You can use the device in tablet or notebook mode. Unlike the others is also comes with an optional Wacom EMR pen, sold separately, plus an optional 5 MP autofocus camera. It’s priced at $380 and up.

Acer Launches Two New Chromebooks: Acer Chromebook 512, Chromebook Spin 512

By Radu Iorga

This week is all about education, courtesy of the BETT Education Show 2019. That’s where multiple education devices are unveiled, including a bunch of laptops, convertibles and tablets. Acer brought its own to the show, a pair of new Chromebooks: Acer Chromebook 512 and Acer Chromebook Spin 512.

Both are meant for the education market and they’re also premieres: the first Acer Chromebooks with 12 inch screens that offer a 3:2 aspect ratio. Both products will come to North America in April. The Spin unit predictably has a touchscreen display with a 360 degree hinge and it starts at $450. There’s also a non convertible Spin with a 180 degree hinge and a $330 price.

Both models have a 1366 x 912 pixel resolution and an IPS panel. They support CPUs up to an Intel Pentium Silver N5000 and their cases are rugged enough to take some beating in the classroom (MIL-STD 810G tested). They have shock absorbing bumpers and spill resistant too, plus touchpads. Acer claims that the laptops can take a drop from 4 feet high and can stand up to 132 pounds of pressure.

 

On the connectivity front there’s WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, two USB Type-C 3.1 ports and two USB Type-A ports. Acer Chromebook Spin 512 comes with 4 or 8 GB of RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB of storage and a 3920 mAh battery. There’s a microSD card slot, an 8 MP and 720p camera, plus stereo speakers. It all weighs 3.3 pounds. The Chromebook 512 didn’t get detailed past the HD webcam and the choice of Celeron N4100/Pentium Silver N5000 CPU.

Acer’s launches new high-end gaming laptops with Nvidia RTX 2080 GPUs

By Frederic Lardinois

Acer today announced two new gaming laptops at CES, the 17-inch $4,000 Predator Triton 900 with a convertible 4K display and the somewhat more affordable all-metal 15-inch $1,800 Triton 500. What sets these laptops apart is, among a few other interesting features and some interesting design choices, support for Nvidia’s new(ish) RTX 2080 GPUs, the most powerful graphics processors on the market today.

The Triton 900 features the RTX 2080 by default, while you’ll have to shell out an extra $700 to get it on the Triton 500. Otherwise, the specs are very much what you’d expect from a modern gaming laptop, with 8th generation Intel i7 chips, 16GB of base memory (with the option of going up to 32GB) and up to a terabyte of NVMe-based storage.

The Triton 900’s flipping screen is a bit of a gimmick, but it doesn’t look bad and the company argues that it’ll allow for “multiple gaming scenarios and better ergonomics.” I’m not sure ergonomics is top of mind for most gamers who are willing to shell out $4,000 for a laptop, but it can’t hurt either. The 4K display is a touchscreen, too, which could make it interesting as a more high-end portable workstation for creative work. If you’re a gamer, though, you’ll likely be more excited about the built-in Xbox wireless receiver and audio by Waves, which offers head tracking to provide you a more realistic 3D audio experience

Unsurprisingly, the Triton 500 is the more “sensible” option here, with a more palatable starting price, slim design (it’s 0.7 inches thick and weighs in at 4.6 lbs) and the promise of eight hours of battery life. You only get a full HD display, though, with even the base model comes with an RTX 2060 card, which is no slouch either and should easily be able to let you play and modern game at its maximum graphics settings in HD.
