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

Share

To cater to the same segment, Acer and HP has unveiled new Chromebook models recently, which will be showcased at the CES trade fair. The 11.6-inch IPS display has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and comes in touch and non-touch variants. It runs Intel Celeron N3350 or N3450 7th-gen processors and support RAM up to 8GB.

Just looking at the image gallery below, you will be impressed with the simple yet stylish design of the new Acer Chromebook 11. The company is continuing its support with the launch of the new Chromebook 11, a budget-friendly device that features USB Type-C ports. It is actually pretty spacious considering this is an 11.6-inch Chromebook, but the bigger bezels around the display help make it larger for the keyboard (even though many would prefer the smaller bezels and a larger display, this does help make the Chromebook 11 a bit more rugged).

The outside of the Acer Chromebook 11 is definitely a looker.

The laptop is powered by Intel's Celeron processor with 2 or 4GB of RAM, along with 16 or 32GB of internal storage. Also, the Acer Chromebook 11 will fully support Google Play at launch, so customers will have access to millions of Android apps on Google Play to let them have more fun, be entertained, stay connected and remain productive. It comes in two models CB311-8H and CB311-8HT. "Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline". Buyers will also be offered to opt for higher storage of up to 64GB on both the Chromebooks, but there should also be a microSD card slot on the devices for bumping up the external storage. There are several models of the Chromebook 11 line which will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in March with prices starting from £249.

HP has not revealed pricing for either device, but that may be available next week at CES 2018 where the devices will be on display.

The new HP Chromebook will be released in April, with a price yet to be disclosed.
