Powerful AMD A-Series Processors with Radeon Graphics for Multitasking
The Acer Chromebook 315 is powered by 7th Gen AMD A-Series processors with Radeon graphics to provide fast and efficient computing in two configurations; either featuring the AMD A6-9220C APU or A4-9120C APU in a system-on-chip design. The new AMD A-Series processors for Chromebooks enable customers to stream video, run the latest apps, play web games and browse the Internet effortlessly for up to 10 hours. Plus, the Acer Chromebook 315 supports millions of Android apps on Google Play™ for entertainment, productivity, connectivity and more.
Display and Audio for Entertainment, Productivity
The clear and vibrant 15.6-inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 display is large enough for opening browsers side-by-side, viewing streaming video in sharp detail, and playing web games. Customers can be productive with more viewing real estate and the power to run multiple tabs and apps. The IPS display lets users easily present slide shows and share content thanks to its wide 178-degree viewing angles. Even video chats can be shared. The HD webcam has a wide 88-degree field-of-view to accommodate groups. In addition, audio and video are crystal clear thanks to high dynamic range imaging and the built-in microphone.
Clear and crisp audio is the result of the Acer Chromebook 315’s two full-sized upward-facing speakers that flank the keyboard. The speakers support high-definition audio and deliver enhanced volume and audio range.
The Acer Chromebook 315’s large size means there’s also room for a full-sized, backlit keyboard on touch-screen models, and a large touchpad.
