Acer has just introduced the Chromebook 315 . As the name suggests, this is a new laptop running the Chrome OS operating system, which is owned by Google.
Like most large companies operating in the high-tech sector, Acer participates in the CES show which is currently taking place in Las Vegas. Of course, the Taiwanese firm did not go there empty-handed. And as proof, Acer took advantage of the event to lift the veil on a new laptop powered by Chrome OS. Called Chromebook 315, the product was born thanks to a partnership with AMD. It is indeed the first Chromebook to integrate an AMD chip.
Moreover, it is about a Radeon GPU. The combination of these two components is supposed to provide an excellent ratio between autonomy and performance.
In fact, the Chromebook 315 boasts of at least half a day of battery life, even under heavy use.
A revolutionary Chromebook
Chromebooks have always been considered devices that don't provide the best experience. Many people think that their limited resources do not allow the user to take full advantage of their favorite programs.
Added to this is the fact that the design is less attractive than that of a conventional laptop. With the Chromebook 315, Acer is visibly seeking to change this perception of reality.
The product thus sports a 15.6-inch screen with a Full HD resolution. Note that the screen may or may not be tactile. In addition to the usual Chrome apps, the Chromebook 315 supports Android apps and it will soon be possible to install Linux apps.
Availability in France
The Chromebook 315 will be offered in several versions. Suffice to say that the buyer will be able to better meet his needs. In this regard, it will be possible to opt for a RAM of 4 or 8 GB. The storage space, meanwhile, is between 32 and 64 GB. For the processor, we have the choice between l 'AMD A6-9920C and AMD A4-9120C. Finally, be aware that this new Acer Chromebook will be marketed in France from April at the starting price of 349 euros.
