Acer Unveils New Durable Chromebooks for Classroom Use

The electronics corporation expands its Chromebook family with two new models for the education market.

Acer has expanded its line of Chromebooks for the education market with two new models, the Acer Chromebook C910 and Acer Chromebook C740. Both new models are designed for durability and provide an easy-to-manage platform for student learning.

The C910 and C740 have reinforced hinges and covers that can withstand up to 60kg of force, while the corners can tolerate up to 45cm drops without damage.

The new Chromebooks each have a Kensington lock, so they can be secured to a wireless cart or lab. The web-based management console allows remote management of apps and policies across all Chromebooks in the network.

The C910’s 15.6-inch display comes as either a full HD IPS (1920×1080 resolution) or HD (1366×768 resolutions). Both models have Acer ComfyView displays with anti-glare properties that minimize the amount of reflecting light for less eyestrain.

Both systems will be available with a 5th Generation Intel Core i3-5005U processor or next-generation Intel Celeron 3205U processor based on the Broadwell Micro-architecture. The C740 provides up to 9 hours of battery life and the C910 provides up to 8 hours.

The C910 and C740 offer wireless connectivity through MIMO 2×2 Wi-Fi 802.11ac. Users can connect other devices via Bluetooth 4.0, or by the USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and HDMI ports. The SD card reader enables a way to access and transfer files.

The new Chromebooks for education customers will be available in February through Acer authorized retailers. In the United States, the Acer C910 will be available with either a 16GB or 32GB SSD drive and 4GB of RAM starting at $299.99. The Acer C740 will be available with a 16GB SSD drive and either 2GB or 4GB of RAM and starts at $259.99.
