“What if Chromebooks were bigger?” That’s the question that the Acer Chromebook 15 line has tried to answer, as the only 15-inch sized Chromebook on the market. That laptop was ultimately outclassed by more powerful or versatile Chromebooks, but Acer has revised the Chromebook 15 with a more premium aluminum design and better battery life.

There are high-end Chromebooks out there, with the latest Intel processors, memory, and high-resolution screens that can rival the best Windows and Apple laptops on the market. The Chromebook 15…
Google’s Chrome OS has successfully managed to carve our a sizeable market chunk for itself, primarily in the education field.

Acer has announced a new Chromebook called the Spin 11, a convertible design with a 360-hinge and 11.6-inch touchscreen. If that sounds familiar, it’s probably because Acer and Google launched essentially the same thing a year ago for the education market. This model, however, will be available in regular retail channels.
The Chromebook Spin 11 has options for quad-core Pentium or Celeron processors, two USB-C 3.1 ports, Google Play support, and an 11.6-inch touchscreen at a resolution of only 1366 x 768 — though at least the panel is IPS. Acer claims up to 10 hours of battery life. The Spin 11 will go on sale in the US in March starting at $ 349.
