Acer launches premium Chromebook line

Acer Africa has introduced two new premium Acer Chromebook lines, the Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714, designed to help employees work in the cloud more securely. Both new Acer Chromebooks have a premium all-aluminium chassis that delivers military-grade (U.S. MIL-STD 810G1) durability, as well as an integrated fingerprint reader, and Citrix Ready Certification.

Click below to read more about the computer.

The new Chromebooks have Full HD displays and up to 8th Gen Intel Core processors, and up to 12 hours of battery life from typical work operations.

“The addition of a premium durable chassis and integrated fingerprint reader onto the latest Acer Chromebooks enhances the security and reliability of these devices,” said James Lin, general manager for notebooks, IT Product Business, Acer Inc. “Employees of all types — whether in a corporate office, small business, or an educational setting — need reliable, powerful PCs that help protect their data, perform well, and look great. These new Acer Chromebooks fit that bill.”

Premium Protection

The Acer Chromebook 715 and 714 both feature a durable, all-aluminium, impact-resistant chassis that looks great on a front desk for customer-facing settings, as well as on the road with employees making client visits or sales calls. The reinforced design delivers military-grade protection (U.S. MIL-STD 810G compliant), so it can handle drops from up to 48 inches (122 cm) and can withstand up to 132 pounds (60 kg) of downward force. The anodised aluminium chassis stands up to daily wear and tear, resists dents and bending, and wards off dings, chips and corrosion to maintain the high-end look and feel.

The Corning Gorilla Glass touchpad features click-anywhere functionality and is also scratch- and moisture-resistant.

For further protection, the machines feature an integrated fingerprint reader conveniently placed next to the keyboard. Ideal for shared environments, the fingerprint reader gives employees a quick and secure way to unlock the device and share with co-workers.

Citrix Ready certified, the new Acer Chromebooks are fully compatible with Citrix solutions that enhance business mobility, networking, and cloud platforms.

First Acer Chromebook with a numeric keypad

The 715 is the first Acer Chromebook to include a dedicated numeric keypad. The large display provides ample room for the keypad, which gives cloud workers in retail, finance, and service fields — as well as in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) — an efficient way to input data. In addition, it has a backlit keyboard so productivity can continue in low-light conditions.

The 15.6-inch IPS display allows viewing of multiple apps and tabs in Full HD 1920×1080 resolution. It comes in both touch-screen and standard display options.

Narrow-Bezel Display 

Employees working remotely will appreciate the Acer Chromebook 714’s compact design and 14-inch Full HD display. The slim bezels measure as little as 6.18 mm (0.24 inches) to reduce the overall footprint and keep the focus on the visuals. Like the 715, the 714 has IPS3 technology and comes in touch-screen and standard non-touch options.

All-Day Battery Life and Enhanced Performance 

Both machines deliver industry-leading battery life of up to 12 hours, so they can be used for a full day of productivity on the road or in customer-facing environments. Both can be powered by a range of processors, including the 8th Gen Intel Core i5 and Core i3 processors as well as Intel Celeron and Intel Pentium Gold options.

Staying Connected

The laptops have a USB 3.1 Type-C port on each side so they can be connected to devices and charged from the side that’s most convenient. The ports can be used for quick data transfers, connecting to an external display, and for charging other devices. Both Chromebooks also have a USB 3.0 port and a MicroSD card reader.

The optional Acer USB-Type-C Dock can be connected via a single cable, transforming the machines into powerful workstations that can connect to external displays, printers, and more. This convenient and compact dock enables high-speed video, audio, and data transfers, and keeps the front desk or work area clutter-free.

Chrome OS Security 

The new units work well with Google’s Chrome Enterprise solution that helps businesses manage devices at scale. Ideal for a range of business environments, including those where employees share devices and are mobile, such as in health care and retail, Chrome Enterprise helps create a secure and productive environment for cloud-based workers.

Customers will have access to the latest Chrome apps and millions of Android apps for productivity, connectivity, and services, via Google Play.
Availability 

The Acer Chromebook 715 is available with 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 SDRAM and either 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of eMMC storage. 

The Acer Chromebook 714 is available with 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 SDRAM and either 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of eMMC storage.

Making its official Nintendo Switch debut during this year’s Nintendo Direct at E3 in Los Angeles, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will mark the first time all three original Spyro games will be available on a Nintendo console. The trilogy will also mark the first Spyro appearance on a Nintendo console since Skylanders Imaginators in 2016, and the first Spyro-led game on a Nintendo console in more than 11 years. With Nintendo Switch, players can jump, glide, charge and flame their foes as they take on the challenges and adventures from the remaster, both on the go in handheld mode and from the comfort of their homes in TV mode.

The trilogy, which includes Spyro the DragonSpyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, will be available to pre-order starting today via major retailers.

Spyro will also take his first ever flight on PC via Steam, showcasing the dynamic gaming collection in fiery 4K and an uncapped framerate to delight both veteran and new franchise fans.

Immaculately remade from the ground up, Spyro Reignited Trilogy features the nostalgic gameplay that fans enjoyed years ago with over 100 levels, enhanced reward sequences, as well as the beautiful redesigns of Spyro’s hoard of zany dragons and other goofballs (including Sparx the Dragonfly, Hunter, Sheila, Agent 9, and Sgt. Byrd). The trilogy includes enhanced environments, a remastered soundtrack, updated controls, brand-new lighting, and recreated cinematics for added pizzazz in this beloved adventure. Lead developer Toys For Bob is back at it again to bring the Spyro Reignited Trilogy to Nintendo Switch, while the PC version will have the talented developers at Iron Galaxy leading the charge.

Michelle Fonseca, vice president of product management and marketing at Activision, said: “Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a love letter to the fans. Bringing this nostalgic experience to the Nintendo Switch and Steam means that no matter what gaming platform they choose, players will have the opportunity to experience this incredibly fun and iconic game. Our goal is to transport players back to their precious memories from the ‘90s, while also inviting new fans to dive into Spyro’s world on whatever platform they desire.”

The games will be available on the Nintendo Switch and PC on 3 September 2019. The remastered trilogy is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
