The Chromebook 13 differs from the company’s older models for several reasons which include its high-end specifications.
The gadget is the first of its kind to be powered by Nvidia’s new K1 chip – a mobile processor designed to enable all-day battery life and smooth multitasking. Nvidia’s chips are known for their graphics performance so the Chromebook 13 is likely to handle heavy graphics with ease. They can especially come in handy for students studying 3D models.
The Chromebook 13′s thinner and more durable design doesn’t feel as cheap as the company’s earlier offerings,
But the most attractive feature is its battery life. The Asus Chromebook, can last between 11.5 and 13 hours.
The company’s C720 models all feature 11.6-inch displays, while the new Chromebook comes with a 13.3-inch screen. This could make it a more suitable option for students or productivity users looking for a slightly larger screen.
Acer is offering a full HD model at a relatively cheap price point too. The $299 mid-range model, which is only slightly more expensive than the $279 entry level edition, comes with a 1080p display.
Chromebooks have been around since 2011, but they’re becoming an increasingly attractive option for those shopping on a budget.
