Acer launching first Core i3-powered Chromebook C720

To date most Chromebooks have been powered by the smaller mobile processors – including Intel’s Atom and Celeron processors, and Samsung’s Exynos. With the exception of Google’s Pixel – which is powered by an Intel i5 chip –the Chromebook market has been the territory of smaller processors. Acer is looking to change that by putting out two Chromebook variations under the C720 model powered by 4th gen Intel i3 processors.

First NVIDIA-powered Chromebook seen online

It is not widely known that there is not a single Chromebook out there with an NVIDIA chip powering it.

This is why Acer’s CB5 Chromebook, whose pictures leaked online, is a bit strange – it is rumored to have an NVIDIA chip powering it.
