When it comes to laptops, plastic is never fantastic, but metallic builds also come for a price. Fortunately, it looks like Acer managed to come out with a Chromebook that sports an aluminum chassis, a Corning Gorilla Glass-covered trackpad, thin side bezels, promises an impressive autonomy of 12 hours, and will start below the US$350 threshold once it hits the North American market.

In addition to the above, the upcoming Acer Chromebook 514 also features USB Type-C connectivity, an HDR webcam, an optional touchscreen display (the standard offering comes with a 14-inch 1080p non-touch screen), a backlit keyboard, but the details about the processor, memory, and storage space provided are not public yet.

According to the official press release, the Acer Chromebook 514 is scheduled to arrive in North America in October, starting at precisely US$349.99. The "approved Chrome OS territories" across the EMEA region should get this portable later this year as well, but the starting price will be the same figure in EUR.

We will get back with more details in the weeks to come, so stay tuned. Would you buy the Acer Chromebook 514 once it comes out? Let us know in the comments.

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.
