Full-body aluminium for cheap as Acer Chromebook 14 pre-orders go up

Don’t let the word “Chromebook” scare you. If you’re looking to switch off to a more spartan and streamable digital lifestyle, you’ll get everything you need in one of those puppies. Google is lousy with demand from the education sector and those kids can get work done on that thing.

That’s why Acer has released Chromebook after Chromebook to match persnickety people to the right computer. Now, with the new Acer Chromebook 14, it’s upped the feel and focus of the product.

While we see a dual-core Intel Celeron processor here along with standard Intel HD graphics integration, you do get a 1080p screen at 14 inches, 4GB of RAM, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and up to 12 hours of battery life. The fully aluminium body comes in “Sparkly Silver” and runs under three-and-a-half pounds.

It’s on pre-order right now for $299.99 on Amazon.
