Acer announces military-grade Chromebook 14 for Work
Acer on Thursday announced its latest Chromebook, the rough and tumble Chromebook 14 for Work. As the name indicates, the device is built to withstand even the harshest of working environments. Whether that means dust, rain, or extreme temperatures, or dropping it from four feet, it’s designed to take a licking.
Powered by a sixth-generation Intel Core processor, the Chromebook 14 for Work will be offered in a variety of models. Customers can choose from a 32GB or 16GB eMMC storage and either 8GB, 4GB, or 2GB of LPDDR3 SDRAM. Display size is pegged at 14-inches with resolutions of full HD (1920 x 1080) or HD (1366 x 768) pixels.
Other specifications include a wide-angle (170 degree) screen with Gorilla Glass, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2×2 MIMO technology, and dual stereo speakers, and Bluetooth 4.2. Acer will offer an optional USB 3.0 Type-C dock which includes DisplayPort, HDMI, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and three USB 3.1 Type-A posts.
