Acer’s Chromebook 515 is made for business on the go

Like most laptop manufacturers, Acer has been courting remote workers and students with many of its new releases. Ive spent some time with an early sample of the Chromebook 515, a new line targeting remote business users. Perhaps most importantly for many work-from-home customers, the 515 looks to be a solid video-conferencing tool. The speakers, with the help of a built-in smart amplifier, deliver audio thats surprisingly loud and easily fills a room — its louder than the audio of many much more expensive Windows laptops Ive reviewed recently. The webcam has a physical shutter thats easy to slide back and forth and did a good job keeping me visible in dim light (though it delivered a somewhat grainy picture). There are two built-in microphones as well. The laptop also has the specs to accommodate a wide range of workloads. My unit has a respectable Core i3-1115G4 — models can also come with a Pentium Gold 7505, a Core i5, or a Core i7 (which will be overkill for most consumers). It performed speedily throughout my daily workload of around a dozen Chrome tabs and had no trouble playing YouTube videos over top. Acer hasnt provided the battery size but claims youll get up to 10 hours. And while the 15.6-inch display isnt the brightest, its quite roomy for multitasking and matte enough not to kick back any intrusive glare. The main downside of the Chromebook 515 seems to be that its a bit ugly. I wouldnt call it an eyesore, but its got the look of something you might pull off a school laptop cart — the bezels around the panel are chunky, and theres significant flex in both the lid and the keyboard deck. It does have a nice finish, though, which is comfortable to hold, and its fairly portable at 3.75 pounds. There are technically two Chromebook 515 models: the regular Chromebook 515 and the Chromebook 515 Enterprise. The only difference, as far as I can tell, is that the latter ships with Chrome Enterprise, which includes extra security and management tools for IT departments. Thats also the only model that currently has a US release date — its coming to North America in January 2022, starting at $649.99, and to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in October with a starting price of €799. The regular model is coming to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in October and will start at €499. If youd prefer something a bit smaller, the new 14-inch Chromebook 514 is powered by a MediaTek Kompanio 828 processor. Acer claims that one will get up to 15 hours of battery life. Youll be able to buy it in North America in December, starting at $399, and in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in November, starting at €399. The companys Chromebook Spin 514 and Chromebook Spin 314 have also been updated with 11th-Gen Intel processors.
