Acer Unveils New Android App-Ready Chromebook 11 - CES 2018

"The model numbers for these new devices are CB311-8HT and CB311-8H and they both offer up an 11.6" display. Two of which consist of the newer USB Type- C (3.1) standard while the other two are USB Type-A (3.0) ports.

The Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5 are aimed at enterprise and education segments of the market. "Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline".

Acer has refreshed one of their popular Chromebooks with the new CB311 line. Making this an Android app-ready Chromebook from launch.

Besides the 10-hour battery life, the company touted the quietness of the fanless laptop. The Acer Chromebook 11 comes with 4GB of memory and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage.

Unfortunately, the Chromebook 11 has a bad resolution for a modern laptop - its 11.6-inch display only has a 1366 x 768 resolution, like its predecessor, the Chromebook 11 C771, which was launched last August and aimed at students. Plus, customers can use the MicroSD card reader to access and transfer content.

Apart from the Chromebook 11, Acer also revealed other notebooks this week, the Swift 7, the Acer Spin 3 and the Nitro 5 gaming laptop. When it comes to the design, the Chromebook 11 G6 is seen to sport a change in terms of positioning of the USB Type-C and USB Type-A ports. It also has an HDR webcam and dual stereo speakers with an integrated microphone.

The slim and portable form factor makes the Acer Chromebook 11 ideal for use anywhere; it measures only 0.71 inches (18.15mm) thin and weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1kg). 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.

We do know that those lower-performance options have dropped the Chromebook 11's starting price to $250, which is slightly cheaper than the rugged Chromebook C771 that Acer introduced for students last August. Acer has yet to confirm whether all options and variants will be available in all regions.
