Expanding on its growing list of products that make up its entire portfolio, Acer is releasing a new Chromebook product with an interesting twist—it uses a Snapdragon 7c SoC.

Called the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, the product is the company’s first to adopt a mobile processor—specifically, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c—which is a stray from the usual Intel CPU. 

Publicly announced late last year, the SoC consists of octa-core Kyro 468 CPU and an Adreno 618 GPU. It’s also capable of LTE connectivity, too. Complementing the said components are 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

While the core components hardly make for heavy-duty tasks, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 compensates for having a long-running time at 14 hours, displaying an energy-efficient design when running off of its battery.

Essentially a device with portability in mind, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 weighs less than 1.2Kg (2.6 pounds). The device’s flexible, 360-degree hinge also enables the use of the Chromebook on four different modes. At 13.3 inches, the portable computer is capable of 1920×1080 resolution display or 1080p.

Other nice inclusions with the design involves I/O such as two USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 1 ports, which can either be used for charging or connecting the device to an external display, and a USB Type-A 3.2 port.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 will become available in both the US and Canada beginning February 2021 for USD399.99 and CAD599.99, respectively.
