Considered a "Macbook Air on a budget," this notebook is the first one in its category to offer 14 hours of battery life and aluminum chassis.

Although Chromebooks were considered low-cost portables in their early period, now more and more premium ones show up. The new Acer Chromebook 14 is a big step ahead for Acer, as it delivers a lot for its price, being the first Chrome OS-powered Acer notebook with an all-aluminum chassis, two USB 3.1 ports, as well as an impressive autonomy of up to an amazing 14 hours.

The specs of the Chromebook 14 spotted on Amazon, where it has been listed for pre-order at $299.99 USD (with free shipping), include a dual-core Intel Celeron N3060 processor, a full HD IPS display, 4 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC internal storage. The connectivity features include WiFi 802.11 a/c, Bluetooth 4.2, HDMI port with HDCP support, as well as an HDR, 88-degree angle 720p webcam.

Because it has a full HD display, the model mentioned above should offer only up to 12 hours of battery life - still more than enough to get one day's work done. Unfortunately, Amazon's product page does not reveal when will the Chromebook 14 become available.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
