Acer's first Ryzen-powered Chromebook is looking to steal the aging ASUS Chromebook Flip C434's section of the Chromebook market, targeting users looking for power without blowing their budget out of the water. Even the lower-end configurations are plenty powerful for the average workload, and there are options for up to 16GB of RAM and up to 256GB SSD storage if you feel the need for speed.

If you're looking for a mid-range Chromebook with certainty that it'll last the duration then the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 - as the first one with an AMD Ryzen processor on board - is a good bet. It's well made, fairly priced, has ample ports and power, plus that 360-degree hinge for added versatility. Sure, Google's Chrome OS has its limitations, but for office-heavy digital workloads it could be the ideal companion.
