THE acer announced four new Chromebooks with a range of features that optimize them for the educational environment. The new models arrive with updated Chrome Education and with a project also focused on greater resistance for school use.
Chromebooks and displays open up to 180 degrees
all four new Chromebooks have impact resistant chassis. The shock absorber and reinforced design protect them from drops of up to 122 cm and withstand up to 60 kg of pressure. At Chromebooks screens can also be opened 180 degreeshelping to protect devices when the screen is being handled, and a unique drainage system built into the keyboards helps protect internal components from accidental water spills.
The new ones Chromebooks feature the OceanGlass touchpad, produced entirely from plastic waste dumped into the ocean. Using this waste not only contributes to the reduction of plastics drifting in the ocean, but also gives the touchpad a glass-like texture and responsive haptic feedback. In addition, three of the Chromebooks — the Chromebook Spin 311, Chromebook 512 and Chromebook 511 — integrate post-consumer recycled plastics into the chassis design to further exemplify Acer’s commitment to sustainability.
THE Chromebook 512 It has a 12-inch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio. It also comes with an optional panel with integrated multi-touch capabilities. The model has two integrated microphones and a webcam with a blue glass IR cut filter inside the camera module, which helps to minimize the impact that backlight reflections (such as those from lamps or overhead lights) have on the video call.
