Two new Acer C7 Chromebook models will be introduced to cater to the needs of commercial customers.
The new C7 models will feature 16GB SSD for quick 8-second boot times and the battery life will extend up to 6-hours.
“Our new Acer C7 Chromebooks deliver exactly what the K-12 education market and so many businesses require — solid performance at an affordable price with up to 6-hours of battery life,” said Gregg Prendergast, vice president, U.S. Commercial Sales, Acer America.
He adds: “Acer C7 Chromebooks will help our customers at schools — students, teachers and administrators — as well as our business customers, get to work and be productive right away for longer.”
Weighing only 3.05 pounds, and measuring only an inch thin, the new Acer Chromebooks are powered by an x86 architecture Intel Celeron 847 dual-core processors (2MB L3 cache, 1.10GHz, DDR3 1333 MHz) for solid all-around productivity. Also, customers will enjoy the fast and reliable online connection with dual band a/b/g/n WIFI as well as more flexibility with a range of ports including HDMI, three USB ports, VGA and Ethernet, as well as an SD card slot for accessing data and media files.
As you know, the Chrome O/S is automatically updated and guards against changing and new online threats, such as viruses and malware plus a Kensington lock is included so they can be secured to a wireless cart or lab.
Students and administrators in the K-12 education market should be aware of the US-based Acer Premier Care and the Acer Educare Warranty Program, which can further protect their investment with solutions such as battery replacement, paid two-way shipping, and accidental damage protection.
