Next to Samsung, Acer was one of the first two companies to announce a laptop loaded with Google's Chrome OS back in May 2011. The first Acer Chromebook began shipping in mid-June 2011, and now the Taiwanese company is the market leader of this segment. They launched their first Chromebook powered by a 4th generation Intel Core i3 processor a few weeks ago, while the Acer Chromebook 13 now becomes their first 13-inch portable running Chrome OS.

These are the four Acer Chromebook 13 configurations that should start shipping next month:

  • CB5-311-T9B0: 2 GB RAM, 16 GB SSD, Full HD display, $299.99 USD
  • CB5-311-T1UU: 4 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, Full HD display, $379.99 USD
  • CB5-311-T7NN: 2 GB RAM, 16 GB SSD, 1,366X768 pixels display, $279.99 USD
  • Variant for OEMs & the education sector: 4 GB RAM, 16 GB SSD, 1,366X768 pixels display, $329.99 USD

All the configurations use a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC and weigh around 3.3 pounds. These 0.7-inch thick Chrome OS-powered notebooks offer a battery life between 11 hours and 13 hours and can be already pre-ordered from Amazon or BestBuy.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
