    1 month ago - By MobileSyrup

    Acer is bringing a few new Chromebooks to market that are getting closer to competing with Google's Pixelbook in terms of build-quality. The two 13-inch notebooks are called the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and the Acer Chromebook 13. Acer also announced a larger Chromebook called the Spin 15. Acer is calling the two 13-inch models business class, meaning that they are more in line with the high-end Chromebook market. Both of these machines even have a 3:2 aspect ratio that is the same as Google's Pixelbook. They also feature the 8th generation of Intel's Core chipsets. The Chromebooks are both...

    For those in the market for a Chromebook with a larger display, the Chromebook 15 line from Acer is no longer the only option to consider as the company has now announced a new Chromebook Spin 15 model as a premium alternative.

    Acer announced a slew of new Chromebooks at its global launch event in New York City today, including the new Chromebook Spin 15. It's a larger Chromebook from Acer that has a 1080p touch-enabled display. Since this is in the Spin lineup, that means that it is a touchscreen model and can be used in tent mode and as a tablet. Making it a great option if you are looking for a tablet that runs Chrome OS (of course, Acer has that too, in the form of the Chromebook Tab 10). The Chromebook Spin 15 is a pretty big Chromebook from Acer, it has a fairly large 15.6-inch display, but also some...

    Along with the Chromebook Spin 15 , Acer also announced a smaller version in the Chromebook Spin 13. This one is much smaller than the 15.6-inch Chromebook that was also announced and is likely going to be its most popular one. It also sports a slightly taller display, with a 3:2 aspect ratio. It's a 13.5-inch display with a resolution of 2256×1504 which actually makes it a rather high-resolution display for a Chromebook these days. It is a touch screen, since it is part of the Spin lineup, so you are able to fold it back and use it like a tent and even as a tablet. Now the regular...

    Sales begin this month.
    While we sit around dreaming of what we'll see with the Pixelbook 2, Acer's got a few new Chromebooks for us to check out in the form of the Chromebook 15, Chromebook Spin 15, Chromebook 13, and Chromebook Spin 13.
    The 13-series Chromebooks are actually the more powerful of the bunch, so let's start there. Both come with 13.5-inch 2256 x 1504 IPS displays with a 3:2 aspect ratio, but the Chromebook Spin 13 comes with a 2-in-1 design that allows you to flip the keyboard back and use it like a tablet.
