[Specs and Info] Acer Chromebook Spin 315 (CB315-4H/CB315-4HT) – the ultimate beginner device

If you have a family member that really isn’t that tech-savvy, but wants to explore that new world, you really can’t go wrong with a Chromebook. You really can’t mess anything up with it, as the UI is very simple and most of the work is done inside the Chrome browser.

Of course, Google is expanding the capabilities of ChromeOS, but so far, it is way more simplified than a Windows machine. Another bonus of Chromebooks is that they are really affordable, with the most basic offerings starting at $200-300. Today we have a better-dressed device, which on the inside is very similar to all other Chromebooks, featuring three low-powered Intel CPUs, along with integrated graphics.

Today we are giving you a quick overview of the Acer Chromebook Spin 315 (CB315-4H/CB315-4HT).

In terms of weight and height, this is a decently portable 15.6-inch laptop, stopping the scales at 1.60 kg, and has a profile of 20 mm.


The laptop has a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display with a side bezel of only 10.5 mm. The panel also has touch support. Acer doesn’t give any further information about to panel, so we’ll just have to wait and see if we ever get to review it.

Specifications and features

The laptop is powered by three CPUs, with the base model getting the dual-core Celeron N4500 and the Intel UHD Graphics with 16 Jasper Lake Execution Units. Then we have the Celeron N5100, which has two more cores and a more powerful iGPU with 24 Execution Units. Lastly, there is the Pentium Silver N6000, which also has 4 cores, but also a boost clock speed of 3.10 GHz. It gets the most powerful iGPU of the bunch, with 32 Execution Units.

All of these CPUs will do fine under Chrome OS, which doesn’t require a lot of power to run properly while presenting a smooth experience.
