Acer unveils a trio of Chromebooks focused on ease of use and security

The Acer Chromebook Spin 513, Chromebook 315 and Chromebook 314 are designed for consumers needing a secure, easy-to-use and affordable device. They are great for productivity, entertainment and communication.

Acer Chromebook Spin 513

Acer’s Chromebook Spin 513 sports a sleek design with an MIL-STD-810G rated durable aluminum chassis. This way, it is an ideal device for on-the-go work, school, passion projects and more. Inside, it is powered by the MediaTek Kompanio 1380 processor with eight cores for enhanced multitasking and up to 10 hours of battery life. Up front, you find a VertiView 13.5-inch 2,256 x 1,504 resolution display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. This design naturally gives you an enhanced viewing experience in combination with the 7.7mm narrow side bezels.

Moreover, the convertible nature of the device means you can use it in different ways. Tent mode allows you to make the most of the space you have available whereas tablet mode allows for on-the-go multimedia consumption. Connectivity features like WiFi 6 and the availability of a Type-C USB port for peripherals also come in handy.

Acer Chromebook 315

The Acer Chromebook 315 is designed for a large screen experience that provides smooth and effortless multitasking. It features a 15.6-inch FHD IPS anti-glare display. An optional touch-screen display allows for easy navigation whereas the large keyboard has enough room to accommodate a dedicated numeric keypad. To go with the display, the Chromebook 315 includes technology for clear and reliable video conferences. DTS Audio delivers rich sound, an HDR webcam helps with visuals and the pair of integrated microphones improve audio quality.

Inside, the laptop is powered by the latest Intel processors and WiFi 6. You will find 10 hours of battery life here with two Type-C USB Gen 2 ports and a microSD reader. For its touchpad, Acer has used a unique OceanGlass material. This is made entirely out of ocean-bound plastic waste that has been recycled to provide a glass-like texture.

Designed for students, the Acer Chromebook 314 is a budget-friendly option. It features a 14-inch FHD IPS touchscreen display with anti-glare and narrow 8.1mm side bezels.
