Acer has launched its first Chromebook powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c compute platform – the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 (CP513-1H/ CP513-1HL) and Acer Chromebook Enterprise Spin 513. The new models pair an ultraportable design with fast and efficient performance, long battery life, and optional 4G LTE cellular connectivity.
Optimized for Performance and Connectivity On-the-Go
The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is powered by the Snapdragon 7c compute platform with an 8 nm octa-core Qualcomm Kryo 468 CPU, which provides enhanced multitasking and responsiveness. Also, the integrated Qualcomm Adreno 618 graphics performance lets users enjoy online games and beautifully streamed video.
The new Chromebook also comes with optional 4G LTE for an always-connected experience. This ensures that users will still be able to access the web, their personal cloud, connected apps, extensions, and more to stay focused on work, school and hobbies, even without a Wi-Fi connection.
Ultraportable and Convertible
A super sleek and ultraportable design allows users to further make the most of the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, which has a durable and stylish aluminum top cover as well as a Corning Gorilla Glass display and touchpad that provide resistance to scratches and damage. Additionally, narrow bezels allow for a 78% screen-to-body ratio that keeps the focus on the notebook’s 13.3-inch full HD IPS touchscreen display.
The sleek Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is less than 1.2kg (2.64 lbs) light and a mere 15.55 mm (0.61 in) thin, with dimensions barely larger than a sheet of paper.
A pair of 360-degree hinges empower users with four usage modes: clamshell mode for traditional keyboard input, tablet, display, and tent modes for presenting or when space-constrained.
Ports and Latest Wi-Fi Keep Users Connected
802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2×2 MIMO technology and optional 4G LTE keeps users connected whether at home, in the office, or on the go. The Chromebook has two full-function USB Type-C ports that support USB 3.2 Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps), DisplayPort over USB-C, and USB charging.
The Chromebook Spin 513 comes with up to 8 GB LPDDR4X SDRAM and up to 128 GB of storage.
Acer Chromebook Enterprise Spin 513
The Acer Chromebook Enterprise Spin 513 provides security, enterprise capabilities, and cost savings, helping businesses manage devices at scale. The mobile form factor, efficient performance, always-connected 4G LTE option, and the business capabilities of Chrome OS create a secure and productive environment for employees to operate, no matter where they’re working.
With zero-touch enrollment, IT departments can drop ship the Acer Chromebook Enterprise Spin 513 which will automatically enroll in enterprise administration as soon as the end-user connects to the internet.
