The Chromebook Duet runs on a MediaTek Helio P60T chipset paired with 4GB of RAM.

A slim shell and a big battery help the Spin 311 make a big impression. 2020 has been the year of the best Chromebooks in more ways than I would have ever imagined back in January: the surge in distance learning and work from home have combined with supply shortages to create an unprecedented demand. As popular models sell out left and right, new models can fill the void and help buyers get a great Chromebook with a much better long-term value. Take the Acer Chromebook Spin 311. Previous generations of the Spin 311 like the CP311-2H are still regularly going for $370 or more on Amazon, so the new CP311-3H launching at $300 with eight years of support ahead of it

You'll have to pay $4.99 for the GeForce NOW Founders membership to get these additional three months for free.

Offering users a second chance to restore their deleted files The unthinkable happened: you just deleted the wrong file by accident, and it happened to be a school essay that you spent days working on. If you didn't save a backup of the document on your Chromebook, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to get that file back. With Windows, the Recycle Bin gives us a second chance to restore a file or folder you deleted from the file manager, but with a Chromebook, the files are permanently erased from your device.

Say goodbye to watermarks, limited recordings, and low-resolution captures Let's be honest: searching for a decent screen recorder for your Chromebook sucks.

The developers at Google seem to have realized that people don't want to pay a subscription to get decent screen recordings, so they finally decided to add a native solution to Chrome OS.
