Acer has unwrapped yet another Chromebook that is built to sweep customers off their feet, dubbed Acer Chromebook 14 for Work, during the Next@Acer event in New York on April 21.
The company touts that this new notebook comes fitted with 12 hours of battery life, Gorilla Glass Case and spill-resistant keyboard, to name a few.
When it comes to design, a report from TechCrunch says the Chromebook 14 for Work "really looks like a MacBook," probably due to its "black keyboard and hinge set against the metallic silver body."
What sets this machine apart from the competition is its durable construction. The company says it is compliant with the United States Military Standard testing. What's more, this Chromebook has the capacity to endure 132 pounds of downward force and drops of up to 4 feet.
What also makes it stand out is the fact that it boasts a spill-resistant backlit keyboard, offering protection against up to 11 ounces of liquid, thanks to its two drain holes that are designed to keep water away from the notebook's innards.
Rocking a 14-inch display, this Chromebook can push out resolutions of 1,366 x 768 (HD) and 1,920 x 1,080 (Full HD). Furthermore, it comes with a viewing angle of around 170 degrees.
Users can likewise use the device out in the sunshine or in a sunny room without any hassle, as it has an anti-glare feature.
The notebook houses a Celeron processor for the modest configuration, priced at $399, or a Skylake Core i3 or i5. On top of that, it also includes up to 8 GB of RAM.
The HD model has an estimated 12 hours of battery life, while the Full HD variant can stay on up to 10 hours.
As a whole, the machine weighs in at 3.2 pounds.
Other nifty features of Acer's new Chromebook 14 for Work include a microphone, dual stereo speakers, 720p webcam, USB 3.0 Type-C connection for charging and data transfer along with HDMI port for external displays.
Being a Chromebook, it runs Chrome OS from Google.
It'll come out in May in the United States.
At any rate, the Acer Chromebook 14 for Work is a good option for anyone who wants to jump on the Chromebook bandwagon.
