Acer recently claimes “the industry’s fastest” with the launch of its updated Accer Chrome 15 (C910), which now packs a 5th-generation Intel Core i5-5200U “Broadwel” processor. The previous C910 Chromebook models included slower 5th-generation Core i3 and Celeron processors.
Like the other models before it, the updated Chromebook is designed for commercial use, meaning it’s an ideal laptop solution for schools and businesses. Acer said that the C910 was designed to take the physical punishment of students, as it can withstand up to 130 pounds of force and features corners that can withstand drops of up to just under 18 inches. Acer indicated that the Chromebook can handle more twisting and stress than other solutions on the markets.
Slates for an April release, the updated Chromebook features a 15.6-inch LED-lit anti-glare screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio and wide viewing angles. Backing this screen is the Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a battery that promises up to eight hours of life on a single charge. Acer also said that the C910 has the largest touchpad in a Chromebook to date.
