The Acer Chromebook 15 is the company’s first Chromebook that uses 5th Generation Intel Core i3 and next generation Intel Celeron processors based on the Intel 5th Generation Core micro-architecture.

Acer has unveiled the Acer Chromebook 15 series, the first in the industry with a 15.6-inch display. The new Chromebook will be available with either a 5th Generation Intel Core i3 or next generation Intel Celeron processor.

The display of the Acer Chromebook 15 comes in two options: A full HD 1920×1080 resolution display or an HD 1366×768 resolution display. Both options feature Acer’s ComfyView with anti-glare properties to minimize the amount of reflecting light for less eyestrain.

With the large display, the Acer Chromebook 15 weighs 2.2kg (4.85 pounds) and measures 393w x 256d x 24.2h mm (15.4w x 10.08d x 0.95h inches).

Although Acer hasn’t disclosed a release date for the Acer Chromebook 15 line (CB5-571), the company did state that several models will be available with either a 16GB or 32GB SSD drive and either 2GB or 4GB of RAM. Prices in the U.S. start at $249.99.
