Acer has launched four new Chromebooks to meet the needs of students, teachers and administrators, including its first Acer Chromebook Vero model designed specifically for the education market. These new models are said to provide the latest in durability, performance and features, making them a powerful tool for helping educators deliver better learning outcomes.

All the new Chromebooks are available with Chrome Education Upgrade, which enables IT staff and administrators to manage, deploy and plan for student learning, all while ensuring students are getting the most from the Chromebooks. IT departments can easily conduct admin support, manage devices, and have the Chromebooks automatically enrolled to their school sites as soon as the end user connects to the internet through Zero-touch enrollment.

“As a leading provider of Chromebooks for the K12 education market, Acer knows what students and teachers need to keep the focus on learning – and these new Acer Chromebooks deliver what’s needed and more,” said James Lin, general manager – Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer. “Our new Chromebooks provide advances in all the areas that have helped establish them as an essential tool for learning: student-focused durability features, reliable performance and advanced connectivity options to support school technology initiatives.”

The Acer Chromebook Vero 712 for schools features a 3:2 aspect ratio and 12th Gen Intel Core processor that enables students to do faster coding on their Chromebooks. The productivity-boosting 12-inch HD+ IPS display has a taller 3:2 aspect ratio that provides 18 per cent more vertical space compared to an equally wide display, so more schoolwork, text, maps and photos can be seen before students need to scroll. The Chromebook’s TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe certified display also reduces harmful blue light while ensuring that users can still enjoy vivid colors when viewing from their devices. Plus, the powerful 12th Gen Intel Core processors let students tackle more advanced schoolwork such as coding and video editing, while also running multiple programs and apps without delays.

Both models deliver multi-day 12-hour battery life.
