Acer Debuts Two Premium 13-Inch Chromebooks Designed for Business Use
Acer unveils two new premium Chromebooks designed for business use – the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and the Acer Chromebook 13. Both models feature a stylish and durable all-aluminum design and a full HD+ 13.5-inch display in a 3:2 aspect ratio. The new Acer Chromebooks are powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors providing exceptional performance and battery life for productivity on the go.
The convertible Chromebook Spin 13 (CP713-1WN) has 360-degree hinges for use as a tablet, notebook, display, or in tent-mode. It comes with a Wacom® stylus (for pen input) that can be conveniently stored in the device slot. The Acer Chromebook 13 (CB713-1W) opts for the traditional notebook design for keyboard-heavy tasks.
“The new premium profiles of the Acer Chromebooks are a reflection of the superior performance they provide, as well as of the vast capabilities of Chrome OS,” said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer. “As a leader in Chromebooks, Acer has helped accelerate their adoption in business, education, and at home. As Chrome OS has evolved to include more features, we’ve responded with designs and form factors that offer meaningful benefits to our customers.”
Productivity-Boosting Full HD+ 13.5-inch Display
The new Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and Acer Chromebook 13 feature a 13.5-inch Full HD+ display with 2256×1504 resolution for 3.3 million pixels of brilliant clarity and vibrancy while running apps and viewing content. The IPS display lets users easily present projects and share content thanks to its wide 178-degree viewing angles.
The display’s 3:2 aspect ratio adds 18 percent more vertical space compared to an equally wide 16:9 display, so customers scroll less when viewing websites, documents, and spreadsheets. Plus, when the Chromebook Spin 13 is in tablet mode, the taller display feels more like an actual magazine, enhancing the reading experience.
Stylish and Sturdy Premium Aluminum Design
The Chromebook 13’s new design features a beautiful all-aluminum chassis that is visually appealing for professionals, students, or anyone who appreciates sleek, modern design. The attractive diamond-cut effects on the edges and surrounding the touchpad complement the sandblasted matte aluminum chassis, making it pleasing to touch and easier to grip.
The Chromebook Spin 13 and Chromebook 13 are both built with a sturdy but stylish aluminum chassis to improve durability while reducing flex. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchpad provides smooth navigation when browsing the web and using apps, while dual microphones effectively pinpoint sound for clear audio during video chats and online calls.
Convertible Chromebook Spin 13 with Four Usage Modes and Wacom Pen Input
The Chromebook Spin 13’s convertible design with 360-degree hinges allows it to be opened a full 360-degrees so the touchscreen display can be used in tablet mode, useful for reading online content, gaming, or chatting. The convertible design brings the keyboard forward quickly for input. In addition, customers can stand it up in display mode to get closer to the screen, or use it in tent-mode in tight spaces.
The included Wacom EMR stylus lets customers sketch, take notes, capture ideas, and interact with programs and apps with precision. The refined elastomer tip provides unsurpassed accuracy and a natural writing experience. In addition, it can be stored in the Chromebook Spin 13’s storage slot to prevent it from getting misplaced.
