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.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
