Acer has announced a total of four Chromebooks at IFA 2019. Of these, the Chromebook Spin 311 is a 11.6-inch convertible while the remaining three sport a traditional laptop form-factor. All Chromebooks are powered by entry-level Intel CPUs and feature USB Type-C ports, Gigabit Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0.

Acer has unveiled a total of four new Chromebooks at IFA 2019. The company continues to use entry-level Intel Celeron processors for all the new models, although it did launch an AMD A-series Chromebook 315 at CES 2019. 

Acer Chromebook 311 and Chromebook Spin 311

The Chromebook 311 and Chromebook Spin 311 offer 11.6-inch HD IPS displays with the Spin 311 being a convertible. Acer offers an optional Wacom stylus and the Spin 311 can be configured with up to 64 GB eMMC storage and 8 GB RAM. The Spin 311 also offers an additional outward-facing camera for recording 1080p videos.

The Chromebook 311, on the other hand, is a traditional laptop and can be configured with an optional touch display. RAM and storage options are limited to 4 GB and 32 GB eMMC, respectively. Both the Chromebook 311s come with the promise of a 10-hour battery life and USB Type-C charging. 

Acer Chromebook 314 and Chromebook 315

The Acer Chromebook 314 and Chromebook 315 sport 14 and 15-inch FHD IPS displays, respectively, and are available in both touch and non-touch options. The Chromebook 315 also gets a dedicated numeric keypad thanks to its larger chassis size. Both the Chromebook 314 and Chromebook 315 can last up to 12.5 hours on a single charge.

Two USB 3.1 Type-C ports with charging and display-out capabilities, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a microSD card reader, HD webcam, 2x2 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 5.0, and Google Assistant come as standard in all models.

All four Acer Chromebooks are powered by either an Intel Celeron N4000 or Celeron N4100 CPU with the Chromebook 315 optionally configurable up to the Pentium Silver N5000 processor.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is expected to be available sometime in Q4 this year with prices starting from €399 while the Chromebook 314 (CB314-1H/1HT)and 315 (CB315-3H/3HT) will be available from November with prices starting from €299 and €379, respectively.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
