It’s a Chromebook with a sleek design, aluminium case and VertiView display that Acer claims to be able to boost the productivity of users. It is powered by MediaTek’s Kompanio 1380 octa-core processor and it can last for up to 10 hours on a single full charge.

The Chromebook comes with a 13.5-inch VertiView display with a resolution of 2256×1504 pixels and a 3:2 aspect ratio, offering 18% more vertical screen space. There are narrow bezels around the display and the convertible design of Acer Chromebook Spin 513 makes it a great choice for those who travel pretty often as well as students.

The Chromebook also offers military-grade MIL-STD 810H durability and the latest connectivity options, like Wi-Fi 6 and USB-C. The Chromebook comes with a backlit keyboard.

Acer Chromebook 315 is just like any other full-sized laptop with a large 15.6-inch anti-glare display and OceanGlass Touchpad. This Chromebook is great for those who want to work anywhere as the anti-glare display is never distracting under different kinds of lighting.

It also brings an optional touch-screen display, while the large keyboard has room for a dedicated numeric keypad. It is powered by the latest Intel processors and it offers Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and up to 10 hours of battery life, while in terms of ports, users get two USB-C Gen 2 ports alongside a MicroSD card reader.

The Acer Chromebook 315’s OceanGlass touchpad is made entirely out of the ocean-bound plastic waste that has been recycled into a glass-like texture, making it a more eco-friendly product.

It’s a more budget-friendly option with an OceanGlass Touchpad, primarily aimed towards students and families with school-age children. It is similar to the Acer Chromebook 315 in terms of processor, Wi-Fi connectivity and battery life, while the Chromebook retains MIL-STD 810H durability. However, it offers a slightly smaller display compared to Chromebook 315 as it features a 14-inch full HD IPS touchscreen with an anti-glare coating.
