Acer Introduces the World’s Largest Chromebook | Digital Trends Spanish
In addition to its new gaming laptops, Acer also introduced a couple of new Chromebooks. And one of them, the Acer Chromebook 317It is one of the largest Chromebooks in the world.
The 317’s screen is 17.3 inches, at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and with the option of being configured with a touch panel. Now, beyond its gigantic screen, the team looks slim and with a well-refined design, perhaps more than the common in laptops of the same class. Also, the screen size allows for adding a number pad to the keyboard, which is definitely a rarity.
Inside, it works on an Intel Celeron processor, although Acer did not specify exactly the model or generation to which it corresponds, the same as the amount of RAM or storage. The Acer Chromebook 317 comes well served in terms of connectivity and ports. It has support for WiFi 6 and includes two USB Type-A ports, two USB-C ports, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5-millimeter audio port.
Now, the important thing is the price. Like all Chromebooks, this one is relatively cheap: $ 379 when it goes on sale in June 2021.
The Chromebook 317 wasn’t the only thing from Acer when it came to these types of computers. The Acer Chromebook 314 was also presented, a smaller and somewhat less powerful computer, with a 14.4-inch touch screen and Full HD resolution.
The biggest difference from the 317, besides the size, is in the processor: while the larger model comes with an Intel Celeron, the Chromebook 314 comes with a MediaTek MT8183 chip, which includes four ARM Cortex-73 and four Cortex-A53 processors. . If these names are read well-known, it is precisely because they are chips that are usually present in telephones, as they are low consumption.
The Chromebook 314 has one USB-A port, two USB-C ports, and a 3.5-millimeter audio port. And of course, its price will be lower than that of the largest model, remaining only at $ 269.
