Our roaming German tech reporter, Johannes Knapp, is on the ground for us in Cologne, Germany at Gamescom 2014. He managed to get some hands-on time with one of Acer's newest toys, the Chromebook 13, Google and Acer's take on an affordable laptop.

 

 

Many probably think of the Chromebook as a underpowered device for simple computing tasks such as email and Facebooking, but it looks like Acer and NVIDIA is upping the stakes a bit this time around. The new Chromebook 13 features NVIDIA's Tegra K1 mobile processor, which should deliver quite a bit of punch.

Along with that, the device also has a 13.3-inch screen with a Full HD display, the keyboard looks solid with its Chrome OS key shortcuts, and it features a non-glossy display and surface.

 

What are your thoughts? Are you looking at buying one?
