  • Acer Unveil Chromebook 11 With Fanless Design

The first Chromebooks of 2018 are finally out in the form of HP Chromebook 14 G5 and the Chromebook 11 G6. Other specs on the devices include two USB Type-C ports and headphone jack.

Like the C731 before it, the latest Acer Chromebook 11 comes with an optional touch display and 16GB or 32GB storage options. Each has an Intel Celeron processor, paired with 4GB of RAM.

Just looking at the image gallery below, you will be impressed with the simple yet stylish design of the new Acer Chromebook 11. "Customers can play games, stay productive, enjoy content and do even more with the new Acer Chromebook 11 thanks to its support of Google Play".

Well, speaking about the display, the Acer Chromebook 11 is offered in two types of displays - touch (CB311-8HT) and non-touch (CB311-8H) - you can choose whichever best suits your needs. Acer recently announced a 2018 refresh for its Chromebook 11, adding USB-C ports and Android app support (versus mixed support on older models). The whole thing is 0.71-inches thick and weighs 2.43 pounds.




HP Chromebook 14 G5 sports a 14-inch screen and will be released in two resolution options - 1366x768p or 1920x1080p with both touch or non-touch screen variants on sale. With any luck, the Acer Chromebook 11 will deliver a bright, crisp viewing experience for its users. There is a microSD card reader to expand the onboard 16 GB or 32 GB storage. Google's still working on making these apps more Chromebook-friendly, but their simple availability has increased the usefulness of Chromebooks beyond education and basic web browsing. The pricing will start at $249.

The Acer Chromebook 11 sports a plastic build, and, the company says that it will be available in several models in North America in April with a starting price of $249 (around ₹15,800). The company has yet to announce the pricing for United Kingdom and Australia market.

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.
