Acer's Chromebook 11 brings USB-C charging to entry-level laptops

HP said that the new Chromebox will not be officially exhibited in the CES next week.

The sizes of the screens will be 14-inches for the Chromebook 14 G5 and 11.6-inches for the Chromebook 11 G6. There's also a MicroSD card reader for accessing and transferring content, two USB 3.0 ports and for wireless connectivity there are 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity and Bluetooth.

It comes with an 11.6-inch IPS display with 1,366×768-pixel resolution.

We're only talking Celeron processing power, with integrated Intel HD Graphics 500, so although mum's the word on retail pricing at the moment, it's pretty obvious students and teachers will be able to easily afford these two. The highlight of the Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 is the addition of a fanless design, which helps the device to work silently in any environment.

There are two versions of this new Chromebook 11, one with a touchscreen display and other without a touchscreen display. It will also be powered by Intel Celeron processor and pack USB Type-C ports.

Acer has launched a new version of its new Chromebook 11.

In terms of the RAM and storage, the HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be offered with upto 8GB of RAM and upto 64GB of storage. Just like any other Chromebook it runs on ChromeOS and is now also compatible with Android apps.

Concerning the build and durability aspect, the Chromebook 11 G6 comes with MIL-STD 810G military proofing, which should leave it non-impacted from drops and harsh conditions. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use. The official announcement states it comes in at 0.71 inches thin and only 2.43 pounds.

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

Acer's new Chromebook 11 starts at $249 with the basic features, hitting stores in the United States starting in March.
