Acer Chromebook Spin 514


Acer’s new Spin 514 has a solid aluminum chassis and high-end specs, but we’re most excited about its new chip. This is Acer’s first Chromebook using AMD’S Ryzen 3000-C series mobile processor, and it’s among the first models containing the chip to hit the market. Designed with Google, the 3000 series is optimized for Chromebook­s and is part of a larger trend that sees Chromebook­s transformi­ng from cheap, low-end laptops to powerful machines capable of handling big workloads. We’ll see if Chromeos can deliver the software users need for more ambitious tasks, but at least the hardware won’t be holding Chromebook­s back. $ TBD
