Acer has introduced a new convertible Chromebook and Chromebook tablet to its range of “premium” devices introducing new updates and durable MIL-STD 810H designs. The new systems have been specifically designed for families, businesses and students offering the latest performance to work remotely and on the go.
The Acer Chromebook Spin 714 (CP714-1WN) and Acer Chromebook Enterprise Spin 714 are equipped with 12th Gen Intel Core processors (up to Core i7) and deliver up to 10 hours of battery life or up to four hours of usage after a 30-minute quick-charge. The 14-inch touchscreen delivers 100% sRGB color range, and comes in two resolution options: WQXGA (2560×1600) and WUXGA (1920×1200).
Both systems feature Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass to resist stains and odor-causing bacteria. The taller 16:10 aspect ratio gives students and professionals additional screen real estate for sketching, note-taking and accessing apps using the USI stylus that provides 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
