A 17-inch laptop is known from time to time especially in the gaming field, but this is the first time that a Chromebook of this size has been made.
Acer has brought four new Chromebooks. The highlight is the Chromebook 317 with a 17.3-inch screen.
However, except for the large screen and the space next to the keyboard to plug the complete numeric keypad, it is not much different from the average mid-range Chromebook.
Using the “newest” Celeron processor, it has about 10 hours of power and the resolution is only 1080p.
Acer was able to control the price of the Chromebook 317 at US$380, and even if the resolution is not high, its screen size is real.
For users with poor eyesight, or users who like to see objects more clearly during video conversations, it may be attractive.
Next is the high-end Chromebook 713 Spin, which is a model with an aluminum integrated body and a 13.5-inch flip screen.
Equipped with a 3:2 resolution panel of 2,256 x 1,504, an 11th generation Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space, plus a pair of USB-C Thunderbolt 4 interfaces, HDMI, USB-A, etc.
This is obviously the choice of more business users, and the price has also come to US$700.
Finally, there are two 14-inch models of Chromebook 314 and 514. Among them, the resolution of 514 is 1080p. The choice of processors is quite diverse, ranging from Pentium Gold to Core i7.
The 314 is based on the MT8183 of the ARM octa-core processor MTK, with a 1,366 x 768 resolution screen.
The 314 has only 64GB of storage space, so more is probably aimed at the student population, and the price starts at US$270.
