Acer’s upcoming Chromebook has better graphics and an extended battery life.
NVIDIA and Acer have worked together to produce the first Chromebook with a NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.
This power-efficient processor Chromebook, called the Acer Chromebook 13, aptly has 13 hours of battery life, and much better graphics than its competition.
Most Chromebooks in the market only feature 1366 x 768 resolution. This means that most Chromebooks out there are not ideal devices to view photos and enjoy high definition movies on.
With the NVIDIA Tegra K1 4-Plus-1 quad-care ARM Cortex A15 processor, however, the Acer Chromebook 13 will now have gaming PC-level graphics and processing power.
The Acer Chromebook 13 has one version with the low-resolution display, and another one with a high-resolution 1920 x 1080 display that costs just $20 dollars more.
The model with the better screen resolution has 11 hours of battery life, but getting two hours less on a single charge for a better display can be worth the additional cost.
Another selling point of the Tegra K1 chip is that it doesn’t require a fan to stay cool, and also means that the Acer Chromebook 13 totally silent.
Other features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI port, and a 720p webcam.
