Acer expanded its line of Chromebooks for the education market with two new models, the Acer Chromebook C910 and Acer Chromebook C740, both introduced at BETT 2015 in London.

Both new models have a durable design and provide an affordable, easy-to-manage and proven platform for student learning.

The Acer C910 has a large 15.6-inch display and is ideal for labs and classrooms where it may be shared by multiple students. The Acer C740 is a compact Chromebook with an 11.6-inch display that neatly fits in a backpack for students who take them home for 1:1 programs as well as in classroom and lab settings.

“Acer Chromebooks are already seen as a proven platform for successful student learning, as they are being used by students to collaborate, conduct research and work on projects in exciting new ways,” said Eric Ackerson, senior product marketing, Acer America. “The two new Acer Chromebooks feature newly enhanced durable designs that can handle even more of the rigors so common to the education environment. Also, schools can deploy and manage these new platforms cost-effectively, quickly and securely, so the emphasis stays on student success.”
