Acer is updating its largest Chromebook with a model that’s… well, smaller. While the new Acer Chromebook 15 (CB15-1H/HT) still sports a 15.6 inch full HD display, the laptop measures 14.9 x 10.1″ x 0.7″ and weighs about 3.8 pounds, making it up to a pound lighter and more than a fifth of an inch thinner than previous models.

The new Acer Chromebook 15 will be available in October for $399 and up.

The laptop will be available with touch or non-touch display options, and it features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and an HDMI port as well as a headset jack and SD card reader.

The USB Type-C ports are also the charging ports for the new Chromebook 15.

Acer will offer models with Celeron N3350 dual-core, N3450 quad-core, or Pentium N4200 Apollo Lake processors.

Acer will offer models with 4GB or 8GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of eMMC storage. And the notebook also has a backlit keyboard with speakers on either side and an HD webcam with an 88-degree field of view.

The new Chromebook 15 is also expected to feature support for the Google Play Store at launch.

  1. The 2 biggest problems with the current version is weight and display quality. Everything else was great. A great Linux laptop.
