At $300, it’s a fashionable way to get on the web
Chromebooks are generally affordable devices, since the entire point of the device is allowing cash strapped users to get on the web for little cash. Unfortunately that also means that the aesthetics of the devices take a hit, though Acer’s new Chromebook 14 tries to remedy that.
The new model sports a metal chassis that looks a little like Apple’s Macbook Air, but people looking for a computer on a budget probably won’t mind too much. The entry level variant is specc’d with a 14-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, a choice between 2 or 4GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage. The higher end model gets the same size display with full HD resolution panel, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
Whatever version you fancy though, you’re still getting the same dual-core Intel Celeron N3060 Brawell processor in both. What’s nice about this particular Chromebook is that the high end model starts at $299 or around 13.8K. While Acer hasn’t priced the lower-end models as of yet, you can bet they’ll retail lower than that. No official PH pricing or release date has been set.
