Acer’s latest Chromebook is big and… cheap. The new Acer Chromebook 15 model is a laptop with a 15.6 inch display, up to 12 hours of battery life, and a $199 price tag.

It’s now available for purchase from Walmart.

Just keep in mind that the battery life and price are probably this Chromebook’s most impressive features.

The rest of the specs are pretty basic:

  • 1366 x 768 pixel display
  • Intel Celeron N3060 dual-core Braswell processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of eMMC storage
  • 720p webcam
  • 2 USB 3.0 ports
  • HDMI output
  • Headset jack
  • 3,950 mAh battery

The laptop measures 15.1″ x 10.1″ x 1″ and weighs about 4.3 pounds.

It does have a few touches that would have been considered premium in years past, but which should really be standard in 2016. For example, the laptop supports 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2, it has a microSDXC card that can read cards up to 128GB, and there are stereo speakers that face upward.
