Looking for a new Chromebook for yourself or a student you might know heading back to school. Consider the brand spankin’ new Chromebook 13 from Acer and all of its Tegra K1 prowess. Indeed, the fan-less and super-cool chipset is among the best you’ll find in any portable device and somehow it’s completely silent.

Announced today, the latest Chromebook features NVIDIA’s strongest mobile processor to date (192 cores!) and promises an unprecedented 13 hours of battery. With a 1080p 13-inch display and super-thin form (18mm) factor, we’re thinking this thing will fly off the shelf. Pricing is listed at only $279 with pre-orders available immediately.

Specifications include:

  • NVIDIA Tegra K1 Quad Core 2.1 GHz Processor
  • 2 GB DDR3L SDRAM
  • 16 GB Internal Storage
  • 13.3-Inch Screen, NVIDIA Kepler GPU with 192 NVIDIA CUDA cores
  • Chrome, 13-hour battery life
