Acer continues to expand its Chromebooks for education line with newly unveiled 11.6-inch and 15.6-inch machines, both built to take tough punishment from students in school and home situations and to provide good value to school districts. The new Acer Chromebook C910, with a 15.6-inch display, and Acer Chromebook C740, with an 11.6-inch display, will be available starting in February in multiple configurations around the world, but all will include extra-sturdy construction to hold up under rough treatment of students who are getting their schoolwork completed at home or at school. In the United States, the Acer C910 will be sold with either a 16GB or 32GB solid-state drive (SSD) and 4GB of RAM starting at $299.99, while the Acer C740 will be available with a 16GB SSD and either 2GB or 4GB of RAM, starting at $259.99. Chromebooks and their desktop brethren Chromeboxes run Google's Chrome operating system and feature a wide range of preinstalled, cloud-based Google services and products, including Google Docs and Google Calendar.
