Chromebooks running Google's Chrome OS seem to be all the rage these days in the education sector. Low prices coupled with functional keyboards make them a cheaper, more productive alternative to Apple iPads. However, there's also a market for premium Chromebooks, as witnessed by Google's own Pixelbook, which starts at $999. Acer also wants a piece of the premium market and as a result is launching the new Chromebook 13 and Chromebook Spin 13. Both machines include a 13.5-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a resolution of 2256x1504. Acer boasts 178-degree viewing angles and a 3:2 aspect ratio, which is popular with the Microsoft Surface family and the Google Pixelbook. The Chromebook Spin... Read more...

The Chromebook 13 is quite the looker with sleek styling, premium materials (like a brushed aluminum chassis that measures just 12.9mm thick) and sixth generation Intel Skylake power.

That’s where Dell’s Chromebook 13 comes into play, targeting businesses that have not only fully embraced Chrome OS, but also want a premium machine that will stand up to abuse from employees that are continually on the go. Dell delivers with the Chromebook 13, giving it an aluminum base, a magnesium alloy palm rest and a carbon fiber weave cover.... Read more...
Much in the same way that netbooks found a niche and became hugely popular, Google's Chromebook platform has found its wings and is flying off of store shelves right next Windows- and Mac-based laptops. And just as Acer helped popularize netbooks, the company is at the forefront of the Chromebook movement in pioneering fashion. As such, Acer today unveiled the Chromebook 13, the first of its kind to feature an NVIDIA Tegra K1 quad-core processor. In doing so, Acer and NVIDIA essentially just tag teamed a new generation of Chromebooks. Armed with a Tegra K1 chip, the Chromebook 13 offers unmatched graphics performance while raising the bar in battery life to a record-setting 13 hours (applies... Read more...
