It comes with a 14-inch Full HD IPS display and thin, 6mm bezel around the outside. There is Gorilla Glass protection too, which maintains the Chromebook8217;s slim footprint but provides the extra toughness needed on a day to day basis.
A HDR webcam is sited at the top of the screen, while power and connection are provided by USB-C 3.1 ports. Transfer rates of up to 5GB per second are achievable from supporting external storage solutions.
Like all Chromebooks, the 514 runs Google8217;s Chrome OS and work at their best when connected to the internet through Wi-Fi. It will be available in the US and Europe, with the latter price quoted at €349. However, prices and some specifications will differ by region.
We are hoping to check out the Acer Chromebook 514 during IFA 2018 this week, with the Pocket-lint team in Berlin to bring you all the announcements and products from the enormous consumer electronics show.
