As expected, Acer is launching its first Chrome OS laptop with a 15.6 inch display. The Acer Chromebook 15 is powered by an Intel Celeron Broadwell processor and will be available with a 1920 x 1080 pixel or 1366 x 768 pixel screen.
The Acer Chromebook 15 is the first Chromebook from any company to feature a 15.6 inch screen, but it’s not just the display that’s big. The laptop is also rather heavy for a Chromebook, weighing in at 4.85 pounds and measuring 15.4″ x 10.1″ x 1″.
Acer says the notebook features an intel Celeron 3205U processor, solid state storage, and up to 8 hours of battery life.
The laptop features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, and an SD card reader.
Prices start at $250 for a model with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 1366 x 768 pixel display. Models with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and full HD displays will also be available.
