Two SKUs will each offer Celeron Braswell processors, 14-inch HD or FHD panels, and up top 14 hours of battery life.

Acer is expanding its range of Chromebooks to Germany and additional parts of Europe with the Chromebook 14 CB3-431 in two different SKUs. Unlike most Chromebooks in the market, the Acer model uses an all-aluminum chassis for a better look and feel than the usual smooth plastic.

The first SKU is the CB3-431-C8Z1 for 330 Euros and the second CB3-431-C6UD SKU for 400 Euros. The pricier configuration houses a quad-core 1.6 GHz Celeron N3160 Braswell processor, 4 GB DDR3L RAM, matte 14-inch 1080p display, 3950 mAh battery, 32 GB eMMC, and an integrated HD Graphics 400. Meanwhile, the cheaper SKU will ship with a dual-core 1.6 GHz Celeon N3050 Braswell processor, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC, and a 14-inch 768p panel.

Both fan-less configurations will weigh about 1.55 kg each with 14 hours of battery life, 2x USB 3.0 ports, Chrome OS, and two years of free 100 GB cloud storage with Google Drive. Acer Chromebooks were originally only available in 15.6-inch and 13.3-inch sizes.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
