Acer Debuts Two 12-Inch Chromebooks & TravelMate B114-21 for Classroom Use

Acer today debuted its first 12-inch Chromebooks, the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 and Acer Chromebook 512, for students and education customers. The new Chromebooks feature a 3:2 aspect ratio display — a ratio that falls between the ratio used in books and mobile media, and similar to using pen and paper.

The convertible Acer Chromebook Spin 512’s (R851TN) 360-degree hinge lets students use the Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla®Glass2,3 display in four modes: clamshell, tablet, display and tent. An included dockable Wacom electro-magnetic resonance (EMR) stylus allows note-taking and sketching. The Acer Chromebook 512 (C851/C851T) features a traditional notebook design with touch and non-touch options.  Other features include:

  • 3:2 aspect ratio screens for more vertical viewing
