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.

Easy to Share and Manage, Especially for Parents
The new Acer Chromebook 315 is not only easy to use, but also easy to share with multiple users. Users simply log into their Google account to access Gmail, Google Docs, apps, extensions, bookmarks, and more. Chromebooks run on Google’s Chrome OS platform that updates automatically and uses multiple levels of security to guard against ever-changing online threats.

With the new Family Link app on Chromebooks, it’s easy for parents to set digital ground rules as their kids are exploring the Internet. Parents can set daily screen time limits, customize the list of websites and apps their children can use, and even manage their child’s Google account and remotely lock supervised accounts on the Acer Chromebook 315.

Price and Availability
The Acer Chromebook 315 will be available with either a touch screen display (CB315-2HT) or non-touch display (CB315-2H) with up to 8GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage. The new line will be available in North America in February, starting at $279.99, and in EMEA in April, starting at €349.
