Acer announced the launch of two new Chromebook notebooks, as it added Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-2W) and Chromebook Enterprise Spin 713 to its Chromebook portfolio.
Both, the Chromebook Spin 713 and Chromebook Enterprise Spin 713 were co-engineered with Intel as part of Intel’s Project Athena innovation program, and are designed to incubate and deliver the most advanced laptop experiences and designs.
The powerful 10th Gen Intel Core processors for the latest in processing performance allows for handling multiple apps, pages, extensions and more. Users will experience more than a full day of productivity on the device’s fast-chargeable battery that offers 10 hours of usage. It comes with up to 16 GB DDR4 SDRAM and up to 256 GB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage.
Both the new Chromebooks feature a 13.5-inch VertiView display with a 3:2 aspect ratio that provides 18% more vertical screen space and reduces the need to scroll. Displaying in 2256 x 1504 resolution, the IPS display offers brilliant 2K clarity whether streaming video or using apps from the Google Play store. Plus, both the touchscreen and touchpad are made of Corning Gorilla Glass, so they resist scratches while providing smooth navigation.
Thinner bezels ensure that the notebook’s vibrant images stand out. Dual integrated stereo speakers provide first-rate audio, while dual microphones effectively pinpoint sound to allow for clearer communication.
The new Chromebook aluminum chassis delivers military-grade durability (U.S. MIL-STD 810G compliant), making it capable of resisting dents, dings and corrosion. The reinforced design and shock-absorbing bumper can survive drops from heights of up to 122 cm (48 inches) and withstand up to 60 kg (132 pounds) of downward force.
The touch panel and touchpad of the new notebooks are covered with an optional layer of Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass that reduces the growth of odor and stain-causing microorganisms on touch displays and touchpads.
The device features a convertible design and can be opened a full 360-degrees, enabling its touchscreen display to be used in four different modes: display mode for presenting, tablet mode for entertainment, clamshell mode for keyboard input and tent mode to make the most of small spaces. The backlit keyboard boosts productivity in a range of lighting conditions. The convertible device is very portable, measuring just 16.8 mm thin (0.66 inches) and 1.37 kg (3.02 lbs), making it easy to place into a bag and take around for people constantly on the go.
It has two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, both supporting USB 3.2 Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps), DisplayPort over USB-C, and USB charging. It also includes an HDMI port, USB 3.0 and MicroSD card reader. Dual-band Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (802.11ax) with 2×2 MU-MIMO technology provides a fast and reliable wireless connection, while Bluetooth 5.0 delivers a convenient means to connect to peripherals.
