Acer Chromebook 13: Your Window to Chrome OS

Posted on 19 December 2014 Tags: Computers, Feature, Laptops

Acer is no stranger to bringing quality laptops to their consumers but this time around they have taken a different approach to make them stand out. Acer has increased the processing power and hardware capabilities of Chromebooks like never before. With a 13-inch HD display and 2GB RAM, this Chromebook from Acer is raising the bar as far as performance is concerned.

You will get 16GB SSD to store your files. The Chrome runs smooth as silk on this Chromebook thanks to the superior processing power. The K1 processor used in this Chromebook instead of Intel Core i3 chips has its advantages and disadvantages. When you use a processor like K1 that is built for tablets in Chromebooks you get more battery life per charge. On the other hand, it may cause some compatibility issues. Acer Chromebook 13 is not an exception to both these issues.

Watching videos on the 13-inch HD display is a visual treat. The larger screen size makes it easy for you to make the most of Google’s productivity apps. Acer has combined a full-size keyboard with a touchpad that does not have any buttons. A full-size keyboard makes typing easier. On the connectivity front, 2 USB-3.0 ports, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi connectivity and an HDMI output port ensure you have sufficient slots and means to connect the Chromebook to different devices.

You might come across some apps from the Chrome Store that refuse to run or cause problems but you also get a significantly longer battery life. During the testing phase, Acer Chromebook 13’s battery lasted for eight hours, which is longer than other Chromebooks. The lightweight and slim design makes it easy to carry around.

Priced at around $300, you get a powerful Chromebook that could match a low profile laptop as far as performance is concerned. It is best suited for web based service and a brilliant online companion.
