Even though the opening keynote of CES 2015 is yet to be delivered, some manufacturers have gone ahead and started making their products official. This includes Acer that has just announced a 15-inch Chromebook — making it the largest ever Chromebook in terms of screen size out there.¬†

The 15.6-inch display on Acer’s Chromebook comes with a 1080p resolution — which again is among the highest in Chromebooks. Other specs of the laptop remain pretty standard and include either an Intel Celeron or Core i3 processor, 2/4GB RAM, and 16 or 32GB of internal storage space. At 2.2kg and with a thickness of 0.95-inch, this 15.6-inch Chromebook from Acer is not exactly meant to be lugged around much.


Other key specs of the laptop¬†includes 8 hours of battery life, Bluetooth 4.0, 1x USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 port, HDMI port, SD card reader and Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac. While the base model of the Chromebook 15 starts from $249, it only comes with 2GB RAM and a 1366×768 resolution display.

Acer did not reveal the full specifications and pricing of the other variants of the laptop. Even the availability of the biggest Chromebook yet remains a mystery for now.
