The new Acer Chromebook 15 can’t be ignored. Not because it’s packed with amazing things, but because it’s huge. In a world filled with thin laptops that don’t weigh much, the Chromebook 15 is the opposite of all those skinny pretenders.
This laptop has a 15.6-inch screen, which is quite big compared to most other laptops on the market. Here’s what’s under the hood of the Chromebook 15 from Acer.
Inside of It All
The Acer Chromebook 15 comes with a 1,920x1,080 display a full-size keyboard (rare with today’s ultra slim and small laptops), large trackpad, two stereo speakers on either side of the body, q 1.6GHz dual-core Celeron 3205U, and a battery that lasts up to nine hours. Let’s talk about the weight of this laptop. The Chromebook 15 weighs in at 5 pounds, and it’s 1-inch thick with a 15.08x9.65-inch frame.
This might not be the best laptop to carry with you if you travel for business a lot, but then again it weighs as much as a ThinkPad does (or some at least). But if you want a full size laptop with a full size keyboard, this might be a good option for you. This chromebook isn’t so big on style, but it does come in either white or black. Otherwise, it’s a pretty basic design that works on all fronts.
The Same Game
Other than the size of this Chromebook, it’s basically the same Chromebook as all the rest. There’s nothing really unique about the way that this Chromebook runs or about what it does. But there are a few different ways that you can configure this Chromebook including the 1.6GHz Celeron processor, 1080p display and 32GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM option that sells for $350. If you want to cut the display down to a 1,366 x 768 option with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, you can get this Chromebook for $250.
You won’t be happy with this laptop if you like smaller options that are lightweight and easy to carry around. On the flip side, if you’re tired of small keyboards and laptops that are compact just for the sake of being smaller (which often means various other sacrifices like battery life and a crunched keyboard), this Chromebook makes sense. In a tech world filled with the small and slim, why not go for something that’s bigger? The small craze is overrated anyway, right?
Where to Get It
There’s a lot to like about this Chromebook. From the ample size of it to the many things that are good about it, I can see why someone would want this option over a more compact laptop. This is also a good Chromebook for someone that’s a bit older and doesn’t want to deal with a smaller keyboard - and there’s a lot to be said about a full size keyboard for sure.
If you’re loving the sound of this Chromebook, you can buy one through the Acer website. Just choose your color and model option, and you’re ready to roll - just not that quickly, since this laptop is so big!
