1080p display option is only $20 more than the 1366x768 base system

Google’s Chrome OS has proven to be a popular choice for low-cost notebooks in the U.S. market. For consumers that simply want to surf the internet, write emails, and do light word processing, Chromebooks make a credible alternative to machines running Windows 8.1.
 
Acer already has a lineup of Chromebooks that it offers to U.S. customers, but the company is furthering its efforts with the release of the new Chromebook 13 series. Acer has upped the ante, making a 13.3” 1080p display available on the Chromebook 13 (a lower resolution, 1366x768 comes standard).
 
Regardless of screen resolution, the Chromebook 13 packs in a potent NVIDIA Tegra K1 to handle processing duties. The fanless, 3.31-pound machine also includes two USB 3.0 ports and HDMI support. Models that come equipped with the lesser display are rated for up to 13 hours of battery life, while those that opt for the 1080p display will be greeted with a still respectable 11 hours of runtime.

 
The base machine with a 1366x768 display, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage runs $279.99. However, stepping up to the 1080p display with the same amount of RAM and storage space costs just $20 more at $299.99, which makes us think that only the most fervent cheapskates would go for the lesser model.
 
The range-topping model comes with a 1080p display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage — it will come with a price tag of $379.99.
 
The base machine is comparable in price to the HP Chromebook 14 ($279) that features a 1366x768 display, Intel Celeron 2955U processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. The 1080p model undercuts the price of the Samsung Chromebook 2 ($379), which offers a 1080p display, Exynos 5 Octa 5800 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
 
Acer is taking pre-orders right now for the Chromebook 13, and it will ship next month.
