Acer introduces price-breaking 15-inch Chromebook

Acer Chromebook 15 CB3-531

A 15-inch laptop for $199. The Acer Chromebook 15 (CB3-531) was announced yesterday and we’ve already put it into our database. It’s a basic specification (we expect that it’s re-using a mainboard from another Acer Chromebook) but the price is very, very interesting.

The CB3-531 uses the existing N2840 processor and not the Broadwell-generation Celeron 3205U you’ll find in the CB5-571 model. The rest is the same – 1366 x 768 screen, large touchpad, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, AC WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and an SD card slot. The total weight is 4.4 pounds which is slightly lighter than the 4.9 pounds of the higher-end model.

Acer is saying that there’s enough battery on board to power the CB3-531 for 11.5 hours but that is really going to depend on how much backlight you use and what you’re doing.  If the battery capacity is 33 Wh as on the higher-end model then expect to get about 6 hours of work out of it.
