It has been awhile and that is because the Chrome OS News Cycle as it pertains to Real Estate Professionals has slowed down some. Well, I got some good news, there are 2 new options coming from Acer worth talking about.
First, this is probably going to pertain to larger property management firms than anyone else, but there is a new enterprise edition of the Acer Chromebook 314 on the way. I was completely surprised when I saw it on Acer's website and I hope we see a consumer version of it for the rest of us. It has an Intel Pentium Silver processor, 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB eMMC, all the appropriate slots including a MicroSD, and a 14" Full HD screen to boot. This machine will be able to handle anything a real estate professional will need to do. It's nicely priced at $499 and it's military grade, so great for construction sites!
Acer also finally showed the higher end Chromebook 712 on it's website. It has quite a bit in common with the new 314 (8 GB of RAM, 64 GB eMMC, all the appropriate slots including MicroSD, and it being military grade) but also has some additional goodies, like a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processor and Wi-Fi 6 capability. On the other hand, the display is not as good as the one on the new 314 (12" regular plain old HD, not 14" Full HD). This machine should be able to handle anything a real estate professional throws at it without a problem. It is nicely priced at $479 as well.
This is very exciting stuff from Acer. In other news, the HP Elite 1030c is finally available and there is a new Dell Enterprise Chromebook which is well over what anyone should spend on a Chrome OS Device at this point.
Glad I was finally able to share some good news!
Until Next Time,
