Acer today announced the launch of several new Chromebooks at the company's news conference in New York. Among the new additions, the Acer Chromebook Spin 15 is particularly noteworthy, as it is a Chromebook equipped with a 15.6-inch display, making it one of the largest display Chromebooks available on the market.
That's not it The first Acer Chromebook ships with a display of this size, as the company already equips its Chromebook 15 series with an identically sized display, even though the Chromebook 15 is typically positioned as a lower-cost option. In contrast, the new Chromebook Spin 15 is the latest addition to the company's existing spin product line, meaning it offers features not found in the standard Chromebook 15. Especially a 360 degree rotatable hinge. Therefore, despite its larger display, this device is considered a "portable device" because of its ability to be manipulated and adjusted to take up various positions, including a tablet position. A combination that makes the new Chromebook " the industry's first convertible Chromebook with 15.6-inch display, according to Acer ." With this large display, the resolution is limited to 1920×1080.
