Acer was the first company to launch a Chromebook with fifth-generation Intel chip and there’s no signs of the company slowing down. It released two more Chrome OS laptops on Wednesday aimed squarely at the classroom: The C740 and larger C920 Chromebooks, which start at $259.99 and $299.99 respectively.

We cover all the details of these new devices, plus give updates on some of the latest [company]Google[/company] Chrome OS and Chrome for [company]Apple[/company] iOS features in this week’s podcast. And after our last show where we suggested you might want to wait on a new Chromebook, we received a listener question on that topic that we answer in today’s episode.
