Looking for a Chromebook for your business? If its typically small screen size steers you away from the Chromebook line, the new Acer Chromebook 15 could change your mind.
The Acer Chromebook 15 sports a 15-inch (38 centimeters) display, making it the largest Chromebook yet. Starting at $249 and equipped with the Intel Celeron processor, it is also an affordable, high-performance Chromebook for all types of business users.

Most Chromebooks are tiny. For business users, an 11.6-inch screen just won't work. Equipped with a large, 15.6-inch display, the Acer Chromebook 15 offers plenty of screen real estate to get things done. You can easily work on spreadsheets, presentations and documents; multitask; and do more without sacrificing productivity on a tiny screen.
Users also have a choice between the standard 1366 x 768-resolution panel and the Full HD, wide-angle, 1920 x 1080-pixel display. Both come with anti-glare screens for improved usability.
Powered by Intel's 5th Generation Core technology and up to 4GB of RAM, the Acer Chromebook 15's Celeron CPU delivers fast, powerful performance, even for the most demanding business users. As our sister site Laptop Mag points out, an even more powerful Core i3 processor may also be available in the future.
The Acer Chromebook 15 also comes with several hardware options and ports. Users can choose between a 16GB or 32GB solid state drive (SSD) and either 2GB or 4GB of RAM. Each device also comes with a USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 port, HDMI connectivity, an SD card slot, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Acer Chromebook 15 costs under $300. At this price point, it's easy to think that this device is cheaply made. But don't be mistaken — Acer says the device can survive bumps, drops, twisting and up to 143 lbs. (65 kilograms) of force. That makes this device one of the most durable Chromebooks available to business users, and especially beneficial to those who constantly travel or are always on the go.
