Taiwanese manufacturer Acer has unveiled a new Chromebook for the US market today. Sporting a 13.3-inch display, the device has simply been dubbed as Chromebook 13. It is the company’s first Chrome OS device to come powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 quad-core processor.
According to Acer, the Chromebook 13 will be released in two variants – one with a full HD display with 1920x1080p resolution and another model with a 1366x768p display. Among other specifications, the laptop features Wi-Fi, two USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized HDMI port, SD card slot and stereo speakers.
“The Acer Chromebook 13 is an ideal device for families who need a new or additional computer to share for school projects, research, entertainment and fun online. The display is large and vibrant, so everything from homework to video is incredibly crisp and detailed. Plus, up to 13 hours of battery life means families can use the device all day for work or school and not have to recharge it for nighttime activities like homework and watching movies,” said Sumit Agnihotry, Acer’s vice president of product marketing.
