A cheap price is what you get when you choose a Chromebook. In many cases, decent performance is sadly not part of the experience. But with the new Acer Chromebook 13, you can finally have both in one device.

First, the price: the Acer Chromebook 13 starts at $279, which puts it squarely with the Lenovo N20. One of the cheapest Chromebooks available is still one of Acer’s, but (as I’ve said above) it trades off performance for price.

On the other hand, the most basic Acer Chromebook 13 already gives you a handful of great features, with Nvidia Tegra K1 processor being the most notable. This chip is quite capable of competing against the Intel Celeron and Samsung Exynos chips found in other Chromebooks. It’s also because of the Tegra K1 that the Acer Chromebook 13 has 1366-by-768 HD resolution for its 13.3-inch display, an average of 13 hours of battery life, and a graphics chip that’s quite efficient for the latest graphics-intensive apps in the Chrome Web Store.

A $299 Acer Chromebook 13 is also available that ups the screen resolution to 1080p or 1920×1080. Both models come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB SSD storage. Finally, a $379 variant sports 1080p, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB SSD storage.

All models will ship next month.
