Acer 11.6” Chromebook with Intel Celeron Processor (Scratch & Dent)
Featuring a 1.5 GHz Intel dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM, this Chromebook can balance performance and mobility. A solid body design with reinforced corners, thick cover, and rib panels makes it more likely to survive potential bumps and shocks. An HDR webcam that provides clear images is great for video chats as well as photos. 11.6” antiglare HD display delivers clear viewing experiences.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Cloud-Based Chrome OS
This Chromebook can forego the components that make most laptops bulky and heavy, thanks to its web-based Chrome OS. Rather than store applications and files on a built-in hard drive, Chrome syncs with your pre-existing Google account to store everything, from documents and spreadsheets to MP3 files and video, entirely online. This system not only saves space on your computer; it makes your files accessible from anywhere you can log into your Google account, such as your smartphone.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
