Acer’s Chromebook 15 which is not only the largest option in its series, but also one of the most powerful, is getting another speed bump. A new model of the notebook has been officially launched and it comes with a fifth generation Core i5 processor from the Broadwell lineup.

The other benefit is that you get a large 15.6-inch display with upgraded visuals of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The notebook is designed to be durable as it can withstands up to 60kg of force and also 45cm drops without having you worry about damages.
