Acer unveils three new 2022 Chromebooks
If you are a fan of Chromebooks, you are undoubtedly familiar with Acer. That company has long been a Chrome OS proponent, releasing many computers running Google's Linux-based desktop operating system. The cool thing about Acer Chromebooks is the company releases several models -- with differing specifications and prices -- so consumers can find one that best meets their needs.
Today, Acer announces three new 2022 Chromebooks, and they are all quite different. Two of them, the 314 (CB314-3H/T) and 315 (CB315-4H/T), are budget models, powered by low-end Intel processors (Celeron and Pentium). The former has a 14-inch screen while the latter has a 15.6-inch display. The more exciting model, however, is the 13.5-inch Spin 513 (CP513-2H) convertible, which is powered by an ARM-based octa-core MediaTek Kompanio 1380 chip.
"This new trio of Acer Chromebooks offers the best of several worlds; they deliver solid performance capabilities, have great extra features, and give users the latest technology while staying within budget. Today’s users need a reliable, easy-to-use means to stay productive, connected and entertained when they’re at home -- these three new Acer Chromebooks fit that bill, says James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc.
All thee models of new Acer Chromebooks feature Wi-Fi 6, USB-C, and up to 8GB of system memory -- that's good. Sadly, they all have something else in common -- cheap and sluggish eMMC storage. While the 314 and 315 have optional touch-screen displays, the Spin 513 only comes with touch, as it is a convertible that doubles as a tablet.
The Acer Chromebook 314 will hit stores in June starting at $299.99, while the Chromebook 315 will be available later this month, also starting at $299.99. The Spin 513 can't be had until June sadly, starting at $599.99. You will be able to buy these new Chromebooks here once available.
