While it bumped up the cost a bit originally, Acer's decision to switch from Intel's Celeron line of processors to an Nvidia Tegra CPU – the first of its kind in a Chromebook – proved to be a sound one. Thanks to the chip's efficient architecture, the Chromebook 13 lasts almost nine hours on a charge. Furthermore, the laptop's excellent keyboard, reliable touchpad and lightweight design make it an excellent productivity tool.
