Students of all levels who wanted to get into the world of Chrome OS will soon be able to get their hands on a new Chromebook by Acer that has been specifically designed for educational purposes.
Just a couple of days back, the new Chromebook 712 was announced by Acer. Although it comes with high-end specs and a large display, the thing that struck us about this product was the fact that it has been made keeping in mind the needs of those who are concerned with education. So, let’s see how exactly the students are going to benefit by opting for this product.
First of all, these machines come with Intel i3 processors (up to 10th Generation). It is debatable whether these processors can overpower i7 processors in terms of performance. Still, one thing is for sure: the Acer Chromebook 712 will be able to perform most heavy-duty tasks, such as video editing and coding. Not only that, but the machine will also be able to handle multi-tasking, collaboration, and streaming videos quite easily.
Another feature that makes this product ideal for students is that its battery life can go up to 12 hours, so you need not worry about your laptop dying in the middle of your assignment. It’s not reckless behavior to pick up your laptop by its display, but doing so can potentially damage the product. However, this is not the case with Acer Chromebook 712 as it’s been built in such a way that these actions won’t do it any harm.
Students would also find the screen of this device to be suitable for their needs. Instead of a 3:2 ratio, the makers have decided to go for a 12″ IPS screen that has a 16:9 ratio that minimizes the need for scrolling for users.
Delving deeper into its hardware, the device sports Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) AX201, Bluetooth 5.0, dual USB 3.2 Type-C ports, and a USB 3.0 port. Other than that, the product will come in two variants: one with 4GB of RAM and 32GB eMMC storage and the other with 8GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC storage. Both options will have different pricings so that users can choose the product according to their budget.
If you’re interested in buying this product, it should be noted that the Acer Chromebook 712 won’t be available in the market until March (for North American customers) and May (for African, European, and Middle Eastern customers), so you might have to wait for a bit.
It’s not every day when a big tech company announces a product that has been specially geared towards education. By announcing a Chromebook for Education, Acer will not only assist students all over the globe with performing their educational tasks but also target the student demographics at the same time.
