Acer Chromebook Spin 514 – Convertible 14-inch Models for Video Conferencing On-The-Go
As the name suggests it is a 14-inch 2-in-1 laptop with an FHD display, the new Acer Chromebook Spin 514 (CP514-2H) and Acer Chromebook Spin Enterprise 514 were designed to provide maximum performance for productive multitasking and video conferencing.
If you are someone who always wanted a powerful notebook with the latest Intel processors, the Chromebook Spin 514 will sport up to 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors. The new Chromebooks are performance-minded yet run silently, utilizing a fan-less design that is ideal for shared workspaces.
The Chromebook’s 14-inch FHD IPS display has narrow borders on all four sides, allowing for an 84% screen-to-body ratio, making it look modern. When video conferencing, an FHD MIPI webcam leverages a blue glass filter and noise-reduction technology to provide clearer images and reduced light flares.
The device’s dual upward-facing speakers flank the keyboard and combine with dual microphones to deliver a clear video conferencing experience, DTS® Audio provides high-quality surround sound, and a built-in smart amplifier enhances the Chromebook’s speakers for louder and clearer audio.
The new Chromebook Spin 514 and Chromebook Spin Enterprise 514 sport a convertible design, empowering hybrid employees with the ability to choose the right form factor for each job, whether laptop, tablet, tent, or display mode.
The device is also durable: it has a reinforced design with aluminium top and bottom covers and carries a MIL-STD 810H certification. This makes the Chromebook look premium and also gives you the confidence to carry it anywhere being drop-proof.
Additionally, the Chromebook comes with an array of additional features, including dual USB Type-C ports, a Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchpad, a backlit-keyboard and reliable Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+). So, in terms of connectivity and all the necessities, Acer has got you covered.
