Users will be blown away by the new level of responsiveness and performance provided by the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 with AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc.
Powered to Perform with AMD Processors
The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 is Acer’s first to utilise the latest generation of new high- performance AMD Ryzen™ Mobile Processors. The AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors ensure consistent responsiveness, fast boot times and long battery life.
As a result, everything is fast on the new Chromebook. The new Chromebook can even help customers tackle more challenging projects for work and school such as video editing and coding.
The Chromebook Spin 514 also includes state-of-the-art AMD Radeon™ Graphics for enhanced gameplay, streaming and content creation. Models with AMD Ryzen 7 3700C or Ryzen 5 3500C quad-core processors will come with powerful AMD Radeon™ Vega Mobile Graphics built in.
The power-efficient AMD processor technology contributes to the Chromebook Spin 514’s thin- and-light design that delivers up to 10 hours of battery life and can be easily taken anywhere, just 1.55 kg light and a mere 17.35 mm thin. In addition, the Chromebook Spin 514 comes with up to 16 GB DDR4 DRAM and up to 256 GB storage.
Convertible Design with Military-Grade Durability
The Acer Chromebook Spin 514’s sleek chassis is made of anodised, sandblasted aluminum and features a stylish diamond-cut pattern on the top cover and touchpad. It not only looks great, it’s also incredibly durable.
You won’t have to worry about the Chromebook breaking if you accidentally dropped it as its chassis is designed to survive drops from heights of up to 122 cm and withstand up to 60 kg of downward force.
Its 14-inch Full HD touch IPS6 display is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass, so it resists scratches while providing smooth navigation. The vibrant visuals are rendered even more striking thanks to slim 6.1 mm side bezels that give the device a 78% screen-to-body ratio.
The device features a convertible design that can be opened a full 360-degrees, enabling its touchscreen display to be used for collaboration, sharing, presenting or typing in a variety of spaces and environments. It is available in 3 colours: Pure Silver, Steel Grey and Mist Green.
Latest Ports and Wi-Fi to Stay Connected
The new Chromebook has 2 USB Type-C ports, both supporting USB 3.2 Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps), DisplayPort over USB-C, and USB charging. It also features two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one featuring power-off charging, and a MicroSD card reader.
Select models of the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 also feature an HDMI port for conveniently connecting to projectors during meetings and classes.
Dual-band Wi-Fi 5 with 2×2 MU-MIMO technology provides a fast and reliable wireless connection for more consistent streaming during video chats using the HD webcam. Also, Bluetooth 5.0 delivers a convenient means to connect to peripherals.
