The Acer Chromebook 516 GE will be the company’s first laptop that has been designed specifically to handle cloud gaming when it is released later this month. If you’ve thought about Chromebooks in the past but decided against purchasing one because of the limited gaming options they provide, the soon-to-be-released Chromebook 516 GE from Acer might be worth your consideration.
Despite the fact that it is still a Chromebook and so has a restricted library of games that can be installed on it (until Chrome OS is replaced), it has been designed specifically with cloud gaming in mind. Your options are ultimately restricted solely by the game streaming providers to which you subscribe.
Your games will look excellent and respond nicely thanks to the 516 GE’s high-quality In-Plane Switching display, which is 16 inches and has a resolution of 2560 by 1600. This provides for fluid images and a high refresh rate.
You will also have the option of selecting either an Intel Core i5-1240P or an Intel Core i7-1260P processor, as well as either 8GB or 16GB Dual-channel SDRAM, as well as either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage space.
In Light of The Fact That The 516 Ge Is Designed to Stream Video Games, It Offers Rj-45 2.5 G Ethernet Lan in Addition to Wi-Fi 6 E. This Results in Connections that Are Significantly Quicker and More Reliable, Provided that Your Internet Connection Is Adequate.

You should also be able to play pretty much anything you want for as long as you want, regardless of where you are, thanks to the up to 9 hours of battery life that the device offers.
Naturally, the content that you have access to play will change depending on the streaming service that you utilize. However, if you purchase a 516 GE, you will also be eligible for a free three-month trial of Amazon Luna for a limited time. This benefit is available regardless of whether or not you have yet subscribed to any cloud gaming plans.
