Acer Chromebook Spin 513
The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 features a 13.3-inch full HD IPS touchscreen display with 78% screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by the Snapdragon 7c compute platform with an 8nm octa-core Qualcomm Kryo 468 CPU. In addition, there is the integrated Qualcomm Adreno 618 graphics card. The Chromebook Spin 513 comes with up to 8 GB LPDDR4X SDRAM and up to 128 GB of storage. Acer claims that the device can go on for up to 14 hours on battery.
The Chromebook also has an optional backlit keyboard. A pair of 360-degree hinges allows up to four usage modes: clamshell mode for traditional keyboard input, tablet, display and tent modes for presenting or when space-constrained.
Acer Halo smart speaker
The Halo smart speaker is claimed to be one of the first Google Assistant-compatible smart speakers with DTS sound. The company claims that it will give high-quality audio that is projected in 360 degrees to fill any room.
An optional LED display lets users check the time or see what the weather is like outside and an app is currently under development that will allow users to personalise their device with a message or simple image. Google Assistant is built into the device, providing hands-free help around the home: with a simple “Hey Google,” the Halo will play music, podcasts, news, answer questions and more.
The smart speaker comes equipped with two far-field omnidirectional mics to distinguish between ambient noise and voice commands to react quickly, and a physical switch is available to mute the microphone for those concerned with privacy.
