Acer Launches 15-inch Chromebook At CES 2015, Intel Broadwell Chip Onboard http://flip.it/SJwHN
Acer is getting the Chromebook ball rolling at CES 2015 with the first 15-inch model.
The Acer Chromebook boasts a 15.6-inch display, an industry first. Historically, Chromebooks have been small laptops, typically having screens ranging between 11- and 12-inches. This year, however, Hewlett-Packard began marketing the first 14-inch Chromebooks, taking the Google Chrome operating system-based portables into traditional laptop territory.
It’s also joins a new crop of laptops featuring Intel's 5th Generation Core “Broadwell” processor, which is targeted at ultrathin laptops, hybrid laptop-tablets, and tablets.
Another trend in Chromebooks is higher-resolution displays. In keeping with this, the Acer Chromebook 15 will have an option for a 1,920×1,080 pixel display.
It weighs in at 4.85 pounds and is 0.95-inches thick
