The Chromebook range is really starting to differ depending on the manufacturer, even with Google’s restrictions on the Chrome OS platform. The Acer Chromebook 13 looks to be one of the best available, and the first to run on the Tegra K1 processor.

Nvidia has been looking for partners with their most ambitious mobile processor to date, the Tegra K1. The upgrades on power usage and graphical performance beat anything on the market right now, even Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805.

Early tests show the Acer Chromebook 13 has a whole 13 hours of battery life, much higher than most of the other Chromebooks on offer. Compared to Intel Atom processors, the Tegra K1 appears to be an extra step up on the performance end.

Multi-tasking is another area where the Tegra K1 shines, comparing it to other single and dual-core chips, the Tegra K1 offers a quad-core processor, capable of handling a lot more tasks at the same time, without slowing down speeds.

The Acer Chromebook 13 does have its downsides, like the poor plastic white build, which looks more like a toy than a machine. Still, this does replicate what Samsung and other Chromebook manufacturers have been doing for the past few months.

Chromebook’s might still be a questionable choice for some consumers, but the United States and parts of Europe are starting to really enjoy the new web-based platform, especially in schools.

Available at Amazon.co.uk or Best Buy, the Acer Chromebook 13 is available for $279. This is a little pricer than normal Chromebooks, but might be a better choice when it comes to battery life and web based gaming performance.
