Acer Chromebook Spin 511 & 512 Launched

Convertible Chromebooks for the Education Market

Acer debuted two new convertible Chromebooks to meet the needs of students and education customers: the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 (R853TA) and Acer Chromebook Spin 511 (R753T). The new Chromebooks feature the latest Intel Pentium Silver or Celeron processors and durable designs that make them ideal for the school environment, including such features as a MIL-STD 810H rating, a tamper-resistant keyboard, and Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass display. The Acer Chromebook 512 further includes an antimicrobial coating that protects its keyboard, touchpad and palm area.

Antimicrobial Displays in Two Different Sizes

The new Chromebooks both feature an Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass touch display, which is a tougher cover glass made possible by an antimicrobial compound that resists the growth of odour and stain-causing microorganisms. It is scratch-resistant and ideal for students who share it in different environments throughout the day. The Acer Chromebook Spin 511 has a compact form factor and an 11.6-inch HD IPS display in a 16:9 format. The Acer Chromebook Spin 512 has a productivity-boosting 3:2 aspect ratio HD+ IPS display that provides 18 percent more vertical space compared to an equally wide display. As a result, students can view more text, maps, photos and schoolwork before needing to scroll.

Durability Features Designed for Busy Students

Both the new Acer Chromebook Spin 512 and Acer Chromebook Spin 511 have been made to be durable. The military standard (MIL-STD 810H) -tested, the impact-resistant body stands up to daily wear and tear. The shock absorbent bumper and reinforced design protect the device from drops as high as 122 cm (48 in) and up to 60 kg (132 lbs) of downward force. Widened brackets provide additional support to help protect the panel, while the I/O ports have been reinforced with additional metallic plates to ensure they stay in place, even with frequent rough use.

Additionally, the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 includes a BPR & EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the coating on the keyboard and surrounding surface that is proven to show a consistently high microbial reduction rate against a broad range of bacteria under the JIS Z 2801 & ISO 22196 test protocol.

Both Chromebooks feature mechanically anchored keys that are difficult to remove and easy to replace, ideal for education settings. The quickly serviceable keyboards are spill-resistant with a gutter system that routes up to 330 ml of water away from internal components to be drained out the bottom of the chassis. The touchpads are also moisture-resistant, maintaining high standards of quality control.

Finally, the new Acer Chromebooks have been certified to meet two leading toy safety standards, the ASTM F963-16 and UL/IED 60950-1, meaning they’re also safe to share with younger children.

Performance-Minded and Convertible

Powered by the latest generation Intel N4500 and N5100 Processors, both of the new Acer Chromebooks empower students with the capability to handle multiple tabs and demanding apps at once. The Acer Chromebook Spin 512 and Chromebook Spin 511 provide a long battery life of up to 10 hours, providing all-day support for students.

The new Acer Chromebooks both have 360-degree hinges that make four different usage modes possible, enabling students to do more with their devices. Plus, they have up to an 8MP MIPI world-facing camera to capture images and also an 88-degree wide-field-of-view HDR webcam for online classes and chats. For privacy, the device includes a physical shutter that can be closed at any time.

The new Acer Chromebooks will be available with up to 64GB eMMC storage and up to 8GB RAM.

Quick and Convenient Connectivity

Students will have a fast and reliable Internet connection on the new Acer Chromebooks, each outfitted with Intel Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax MU-MIMO connectivity. Both Chromebooks also have two full-function reinforced USB 3.2 Type-C ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data at speeds up to 5Gbps and connect to an HD display. Two reinforced USB 3.2 Type-A ports and Bluetooth 5.1 are also included.

Easy to Deploy, Manage, and Keep Safe; Google Play Support

IT administrators will find it easy to make updates, configure apps, utilize extensions and policies and more with the web-based management that makes the new Chromebooks easy to deploy and manage. A Kensington lock slot allows them to be secured to wireless carts or in labs.

Students stay safer, as Chrome OS is automatically updated and guards against ever-changing online threats such as viruses and malware. Parents can install the Family Link app on Chromebooks, making it easy to set digital ground rules as their kids explore the internet. Family Link allows parents to simply set daily screen time limits, customize the list of websites and apps their children can use, and even manage their children’s Google accounts or remotely lock supervised accounts on the Chromebook, if necessary.

The Acer Chrome OS devices support multi-user sign-in, so each student can simply log onto their unique account where their projects, Gmail and other information are kept safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen. Storage on Google Drive protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version is always available. Additionally, Zero-touch enrollment enables IT departments to drop ship the Chromebooks, automatically enrolling them into school administration as soon as a student connects to the internet.

Accessibility settings sync across any Chrome OS device, so as students switch between shared devices or log in at home with their G Suite for Education account, their accessibility settings automatically update. The new Acer Chromebooks will fully support Google Play at launch, so students will have access to Android and Chrome web apps for learning, research, fun and more.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 512 (R853TA) will be available in EMEA in Q4 2021, starting at EUR 399.
