At the CES 2019, Acer took out the packaging of a new Chromebook and was one of the first to use an AMD processor. Like many of the company's other Chromebooks, it's an entry-level model.
At first glance, the Chromebook 315 is not really remarkable, but a look under the hood reveals the AMD A-Series processor. While this chip by itself is nothing special, inclusion in a Chromebook is because most Chromebooks use either Intel or ARM based silicon.
Acer makes the second company announcing an AMD -Powered Chromebook at CES (also announced by HP) proves that AMD is seeking to enter the Chromebook market. While the two current AMD books are very many entry-level machines, further options will never be a bad thing.
As for the rest of the under-the-hood hardware on the Chromebook 315, this is the case for standard Chromebook giblets: 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB of memory the standard 802.11a / b / g / n / ac and bluetooth 4.2 wireless connections. Although the 315 has a rather large 15.6-inch display, it is suitable for anyone who wants a comparatively large screen for a Chromebook. It appears that the 315 is positioned to replace the existing 15.6-inch model in the Acer Chromebook range.
The 15.6-inch panel comes with three different configuration options: a 1366 × 768 non-touch panel, which is only possible on a screen of this size to be described as horrible, along with a pair much more reasonable 1902 × 1080 FHD option – one touch and one without (it's worth noting that this is not a convertible Chromebook). In addition, all versions of the 315 have a pair of USB-C ports for data and charging (one on each side), a full-size keyboard, and a pair of up-facing speakers flanking the keyboard.  The Chromebook 315 is offered at a low price of $ 280 for the 1366 × 768 version, but pricing for the FHD versions of the computer is not yet available.
