Acer introduces three new Chromebooks at CES 2022

The computer, Spin 513, will have a larger screen compared to its predecessor. Instead of a 13-inch screen, the new 513 gets a slightly larger 13.5-inch screen, this according to The Verge. Like previous Spin computers, it has a flip screen. The processor has also been replaced. In the new model, a Mediatek Kompanio 1380 with eight cores is ticking. However, the battery is not as powerful, instead of the previous 13.5 hours, you now have to settle for ten. Other features are dts audio, wifi 6 and backlit keyboard.

Acer’s Chromebook 315 will leave AMD and move to Intel. The Chromebook 315 will be sold in three different configurations: Intel Celeron dual-core N4500, Celeron quad-core N5100 or Pentium Silver N600. The screen is 15.6-inch and anti-reflective.

Both 316 and 314 have a trackpad called “ocean ice cream”, which is made from recycled plastic salvaged from the sea. According to Acer, it should have the same feel as a trackpad made of glass.
