Acer Chromebook 14 is a $299 aluminum notebook with 1080p screen
Acer has announced its latest Chromebook 14. The notebook runs the latest version of Chrome OS on a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N3060 and 4GB of RAM. This hardware is packed inside a 100% aluminum chassis, which weighs 1.54kg.
The laptop packs a 14" IPS display with 1920x1080 pixels and a battery of unknown size, which can last up to 12 hours. This can be bumped to 14 hours if you choose the model with a 1366x768 pixels resolution.
However, the one with the 1080p display costs just $299. The onboard port list includes two USB 3.1 and one HDMI out. The Chromebook 14 will be available in the US and Canada some time in April.
