Acer has recently debuted two new convertible Chromebooks to meet the needs of students and education customers: the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 (R853TA) and Acer Chromebook Spin 511 (R753T). The new Chromebooks feature the latest Intel Pentium Silver or Celeron processors and durable designs that make them ideal for the school environment, including such features as a MIL-STD 810H4,5 rating, a tamper-resistant keyboard, and Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass1, 2 display. The Acer Chromebook 512 further includes an antimicrobial coating that protects its keyboard, touchpad and palm area.
Antimicrobial Displays in Two Different Sizes
The new Chromebooks both feature an Antimicrobial1, 2 Corning® Gorilla® Glass touch display, which is a tougher cover glass made possible by an antimicrobial compound that resists the growth of odor and stain causing microorganisms. It is scratch-resistant and ideal for students who share it in different environments throughout the day. The Acer Chromebook Spin 511 has a compact form factor and an 11.6-inch HD IPS5 display in a 16:9 format.
Durability Features Designed for Busy Students
Both the new Acer Chromebook Spin 512 and Acer Chromebook Spin 511 have been made to be durable. The military standard (MIL-STD 810H4)-tested, impact-resistant body stands up to daily wear and tear. The shock absorbent bumper and reinforced design protects the device from drops as high as 122 cm (48 in) and up to 60 kg (132 lbs) of downward force. Widened brackets provide additional support to help protect the panel, while the I/O ports have been reinforced with additional metallic plates to ensure they stay in place, even with frequent rough use.
Additionally, the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 includes a BPR & EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the coating on the keyboard and surrounding surface that is proven to show a consistently high microbial reduction rate against a broad range of bacteria under the JIS Z 2801 & ISO 22196 test protocol.
Performance-Minded and Convertible
Powered by the latest generation Intel® N4500 and N5100 Processors, both of the new Acer Chromebooks empower students with the capability to handle multiple tabs and demanding apps at once. The Acer Chromebook Spin 512 and Chromebook Spin 511 provide long battery life of up to 10 hours7, providing all-day support for students.
Quick and Convenient Connectivity
Students will have a fast and reliable Internet connection on the new Acer Chromebooks, each outfitted with Intel® Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax MU-MIMO connectivity. Both Chromebooks also have two full-function reinforced USB 3.2 Type-C ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data at speeds up to 5Gbps and connect to an HD display. Two reinforced USB 3.2 Type A ports and Bluetooth 5.1 are also included.
