Acer Debuts New Enterprise Chromebooks: Chromebook 714 and 715, With Fingerprint Sensors

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 Chromebook 714 arrives in USA in July at $499 and in EMEA in June at 549 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.

HP Launches AMD-Based Chromebooks 14A G5 EE and 11A G6 EE; Coming in April, February

By Radu Iorga

Just a few days after HP launched some Intel-based Chromebooks, they’re at it again, this time with some AMD-based models. The company introduced two educational products: HP Chromebook 14A G5 EE, coming in April and HP Chromebook 11A G6 EE, coming in February.

The 11A is supposed to be one of the first 11.6 inch Chromebooks with an AMD processor. Inside the Chromebook 11A G6 EE we find an AMD A4-9120C processor, as well as 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage. It’ll come in touch and non touch versions, both of them with a 220 nit display panel and a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution.

There are two USB Type-C ports here, plus two USB 2.0 Type-A ports as well, plus an audio jack. HP included a HD webcam, a spill resilient keyboard and a 47.37 Wh battery. The product weighs about 2.8 pounds and measures 0.7 inches in thickness.

 

HP Chromebook 14A G5 comes in two flavors: Full HD IP or a 1366 x 768 pixel version. Optionally it has a backlit keyboard. Sadly, this one doesn’t have detailed specs, but it probably sports one of the new low power AMD CPUs. HP also unveiled an AMD Chromebook at CES 2019, a model priced at $269 and packing a 14 inch screen.

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.
