Hands On With Acer's New Chromebook 11 - CES 2018

Acer refreshes the Chromebook 11 with USB C ports and a $249 price tag

While you can't bend the screens all the way back, the 11 and 14-incher are "adjustable" at up to 180 degrees, supporting easy "collaboration" for group projects and presentations. There are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports as well, for legacy connections, together with a microSD card reader. It will be powered by Intel's Celeron processor. Packing 11.6-inch displays, they're completely fanless and offer up to ten hours of battery life, Acer says.

Acer will be offering both touch and non-touch versions of the Chromebook 11. It's great to see that Acer has given us a USB-C port on each side, so no matter where the outlet is, you can charge from either port. Just two days before the annual Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in Las Vegas, Acer Inc. has announced the release of a new generation of their popular Chromebook 11. The official announcement states it comes in at 0.71 inches thin and only 2.43 pounds.

Alongside that processing power, the Chromebox G2 packs up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and either a 32GB or 64GB SSD for storage. Having the model number CB311, this new Chromebook is said to come with no compromises to the battery life. This year, with Android app support and especially USB-C, it's a sign that the average computing experience is moving forward-but gently, so you're not shut out of your precious USB-A peripherals just yet. Many Chromebook customers store their files on Google Drive which protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version of the file or document is always available and safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen. As far as its availability is on quest, the new Chromebook 11 is set to be launched initially in EMEA, most probably in coming March.

Exact specifications and available will vary depending on your region, as will prices.

Still, given most people look to Chrome OS for its balance of capabilities and affordability, we suspect more will pick the new Acer than cough up around four times the amount for the Pixelbook.
