Acer launched its first Chromebook powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 7c compute platform – the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 (CP513-1H) in early 2021. The device pairs an ultraportable design with fast and efficient performance, long battery life and optional 4G LTE cellular connectivity and has fast become a product featured in top notebook and Chromebook lists but the device has now been recognised as one of the most economical and energy efficient notebooks on the market.
84% more energy efficient then a legacy desktop.
End user computing is recognised as a high contributor to environmental pollution and climate change causing 1% of global emissions  with up to 50% of this due to “use” rather than manufacture & disposal.
PX3, an IT consulting company specialising in sustainability in IT, benchmarked the ACER Chromebook Spin 513 LTEto see how it would compare against other market leading notebooks. It was notable, as the device, reduced emissions from a typical mixed device (desktops & laptops) estate by around 70%, with savings of 84% possible compared with legacy Windows desktop PCs.
For a typical 500 user organisation this annual saving is equivalent to reducing travel by 9,460UK car miles or having an additional 3.2 acres of mature forest.
Even bench-marking the Chromebook Spin 513 LTE against comparable market-leading notebooks, energy (and therefore emissions) savings of up to 50% were recorded.
The Acer Spin 513 LTE is designed around performance and mobility, with an excellent battery life, enabling it to easily support the new “hybrid” workstyles and matching the highest priority selection criteria for devices identified by decision makers.
