Acer Chromebook 15 Video Spot Avoids Mentioning IPS

Acer has updated its Canadian website with a landing page for the Acer Chromebook 15, the world’s first 15.6-inch Chromebook.

While (as of writing) no exact models, configurations or price are listed, the page does retread everything else we already know about it: Broadwell processor, option of a Full HD screen, fabric texture casing, etc.

The landing page also links to a short video extolling the ‘features and highlights’ of the device that I, somehow, had missed when it went live on YouTube last month.

So, belated, here it is. All 1 minute and 3 seconds of it, complete with a less than subtle educational pitch.

IPS Question

Display purists among you may notice that the video, much like the official Acer press release last month, avoids using the term “IPS” to describe the screen quality, instead billing it as “a Full HD optimised screen with wide viewing angles (specifications vary depending on model)”.

The education version of this Chromebook, the C910, is being sold in a number of options, including a FHD IPS screen and a standard HD LCD. It’s entirely possible that these will be carried over to the consumer model, availability of which will vary by region hence the lack of explicit mention in this video.

    Perhaps it’s better if students don’t have those wide viewing angles during exams. :)

    Now if they’d just start selling them I’d gladly buy one to replace the two Chromebooks I have now. (Original Samsung ARM based Chromebook and a Chromebook Pixel. Yes, I do deal in extremes there.)

    I like that the processor is more powerful but IPS or bust. If it’s IPS, I’d gladly get one to replace my Toshiba Chromebook 2, which has a nice display but is hampered by a low-grade processor.

    not bad, i like the trend of chromebooks caring for audio (toshiba skull candy collaboration) and now this. I like this kind of innovation keep it coming. Lol no just standardize 32,64 gb hard drives and no more 16 please. Oh and those speaker grills add them to the 13 model… maybe

    way to big for me, but Im glad there are more options for people

    I hope they will release a 13″ version with the same specs ;)

  • Looking forward to it. I’ve got the Acer13 at the moment, using as a stop-gap between the HP11 and the Acer15 :)

    I have the hp 14″ chromebook, and I love it. I have always been a mac user, and I do have two macs at home, but my chromebook is my fun computer. I wouldn’t change it. Just grab it and go.
