We already knew Acer was working on the first two Chrome OS devices powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c chips. And today, the company released two product listings for its Chromebook Spin 513, but you can’t buy this laptop just yet.
As spotted by About ChromebooksThe Chromebook Spin 513 with the Snapdragon 7c processor has two configuration lists that have appeared on Acer’s website, starting at $ 479.99. Acer announced in October that the Chromebook Spin would start at $ 399.99. Additionally, both laptops also don’t show 4G LTE for connectivity, something that was noted to be a configuration option.
The main difference between the two is the RAM configuration, which is only a $ 20 price difference. Although the product listing includes a ‘Buy Now’ button for both Chromebooks, it is still not available for purchase.
The Snapdragon 7c is an entry-level mobile processor built on an 8nm process. Although it is one of the weaker laptop CPUs, the company claims that the biggest benefit to devices powered by this processor is longer battery life; Acer claims its Chromebook devices powered by the Snapdragon 7c offer 14 hours of battery life.
