To take advantage of the CES 2019, Acer showcased its first Chromebook that comes equipped with AMD processors and Radeon graphics. It can be seen as a direct competitor to Chromebook announced by HP.

Acer has not brought anything innovative in terms of the design of this device. It leaves the device with a very universal look, pleasing the majority of users. However, the interesting part is that it allows a viewing angle of the display by up to 178 degrees.

For users who often use the camera, especially video conferencing, will not be disappointed. The Acer Chromebook comes with an integrated webcam that has a field of view of 88 degrees, accommodating well a group of people who are attending a meeting.

The Chromebook has a display size of 15.6-inches with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. You also get a Full HD display variant to choose. The device will be available in 4GB/8GB RAM options with up to 64GB internal SSD storage. Powered by AMD’s A6 and A4 chips with Radeon graphics.
