The latest Acer Chromebook is great and economical. It simply calls Acer Chromebook 15 (CB3-532) and is a laptop with 15.6-inch display, time of 12 hours and a price of $ 199. Practically, it is the successor dell’Acero Chromebook 15 (CB3-531) which we previewed last May, with the same design and technical equipment more updated. And ‘now available for purchase at Walmart, but we are confident that within a few days the distribution will be extended to other shops (and markets).
The rest of the data sheet is not particularly impressive, but considering the sale price was to be expected: Acer Chromebook 15 integrates a processor Intel Celeron N3060 (Braswell) dual-core 2GB of RAM and of eMMC 16GB display 15.6-inch HD (1366 x 768 pixels) and a 720p webcam. Kit interfaces is as follows: two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI and an audio jack. The battery, which together with the processor gives the long operation, has a capacity of 3950 mAh. The plastic frame measuring 383 x 256 x 25 mm and weighs almost 2 kg.
In short, except for price and autonomy, this Chromebook has the same specifications and functionality of any low-end notebook. It has some features that – a few years ago – we would have defined premium but in fact now represent the standard: 2 x2 MIMO 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 of microSDHC card reader able to read cards up to 128GB and two stereo speakers facing up. At the moment we do not know if and when Acer will introduce its new Chromebook 15 in Europe, but we will keep you updated if there was any news about it.
