Acer is now the proud owner of the largest Chromebook on the market Acer has decided that the Chromebook market has devices that are just too small.
The company will soon be releasing its new Chromebook 15, the first Chrome OS notebook with a 15-inch display (15.6 to be exact).

Design-wise, the notebook looks exactly like the company's smaller Chromebook 13, except that it will be easily the heaviest Chromebook on the market, at 4.85 pounds.

For your money, you get to choose between 1080p or 366 x 768 display resolution (non-Touchscreen unlike the Chromebook 13), and either a new Intel Core i3 or a Celeron processor. The notebook has USB 3.0, USB 2.0, an SD reader and an HDMI port. Other options are 32GB or 64GB internal storage (SSD) and 2GB or 4GB RAM.

The base price is $250, but it remains unclear how much a 1080p, Core i3, 4GB, 64GB model will set you back.
