When talking about this new Acer Chromebook Spin 714The first thing that comes to mind is the news that we published a few hours ago, about the short life that this type of laptop usually has and, consequently, the large amount of electronic waste that it generates. And the more than good news is that, in this case, we can cite this particular Acer model as an example of the opposite, that is, that it is possible to produce a Chromebook with a sustainable and durable designand therefore offers us all the advantages of this type of system, but without the drawbacks that we mentioned in the news this afternoon.
But of course, to begin with, it is necessary to remember that within the family formed by chromebooks we can find options of all types, including a small but remarkable high-end that adapts to many more types of needs than we usually think. Such is the case of this Acer Chromebook Spin 714, as you can quickly conclude by looking at its technical specifications, since Acer has wanted to create a device that adapts to the needs of a wide set of user profiles.
The first thing we see of this equipment is its touch screen, built with a 14-inch IPS panel and providing WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 with 16:10 aspect ratio) capable of rendering the 100% of the sRGB color space. And since it is a touch screen, with a particularly flexible hinge design that enhances the use of this function, it has antimicrobial glass Corning Gorilla Glass which, in addition to protecting it from scratches, resists stains and bacteria, thus providing a much more aseptic experience, something that is very much appreciated in these current times.
Inside, we find processors up to Intel Core i7 Raptor Lake, some of them framed in the Intel Evo platform, which is a more than reliable guarantee of combined efficiency and performance. Regarding their connectivity, they have Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 and while the manufacturer hasn’t provided battery information yet, it does indicate that this Acer Chromebook Spin 714 can provide up to 10 hours of autonomyand that 30 minutes of charging will be enough to obtain four hours of use.
In terms of image and sound, and far from what is usual in chromebooks, this unit incorporates a more than remarkable 2K QHD resolution webcam, so we can use it without problems to hold all kinds of videoconferences in any context, also in the professional. It is complemented by two speakers compatible with dts audiotwo microphones and temporary noise reduction technology.
Made with an anodized aluminum chassis, its durability is guaranteed knowing that it meets the military standard MIL-STD 810Hsomething that combined with the benefits that we can deduce from its technical specifications, indicates that we are talking about a Chromebook designed to last.
The new Acer Chromebook Spin 714 will be available in Spain from July, from 999 euro. You can find more information on their website.
