This Chromebook Promises 13 HOURS of Battery Life and a Tegra K1 Processor
Lately, I’ve been seriously pondering over the idea that I might acquire a Chromebook, since I use my laptop almost exclusively for working online. And it seems that I might have found the right candidate.
According to some recent reports and leaks that have appeared online, Acer is preparing the release of the upcoming CB5 Chromebook, which is said to come with a battery life of up to 13 hours. This upcoming laptop is also said to run the same processor asthe new Nvidia Shield tablet.
The Acer CB5 Chromebook is yet to be officially announced, but we already know that it features 802.11ac WiFi, multiple USB 3.0 ports, and HDMI output. There also could be a 1366 x 768 model released and another one with a 1080p resolution.
If you’re looking for touchscreen interaction, then you should know Acer has got you covered. However, Acer hasn’t announced pricing yet, but since almost all Chromebooks differentiate themselves by being cheap, this should be the case with this new one, as well.
Acer’s most expensive Chromebook is now available at around $379 and comes with an Intel Core i3 processor. Thus, this Nvidia-powered Chromebook should fall somewhere in the $250 range.
Chromebooks are perfect laptops for those who are either working a lot in the online environment and always on the go. And to pay less than $250 for almost 13 hours of battery life is impressive indeed. What’s your take on this?
