Acer Unveil Chromebook 11 With Fanless Design

Acer Unveil Chromebook 11 With Fanless Design

The Chromebook 11 CB311-8HT and CB311-8H, announced Saturday at CES and due to ship in April, otherwise represent a simple refresh of the company's longstanding and popular product line.

When it comes to the display, it's an 11.6-inch 1366×768 resolution display, so suffice to say it is not the best screen out there.

Under the hood is 7th generation Intel Celeron N processors paired with 8GB of RAM. Inside, Acer has equipped the Chromebook 11 with an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB/4GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of storage, and a battery that should provide 10 hours of power.

As with other recent Chromebooks, the Chromebook 11 supports the Google Play Store, so you get access to all the Android apps you could possibly want.

The Acer Chromebook 11 comes with two USB 3.0 ports, and this time, two USB Type-C ports are included as well.

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal can't compete with Man City on Jonny Evans
Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans is a wanted man and any potential move away from West Brom may have moved a step closer. I don't know what their policy is. "If the decision comes to finances against Manchester City , we know we will be second best".

The Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition has exactly the same hardware, but is much smaller (11 inches) and has a more robust body, capable of withstanding falls of up to 0.7 meters in pure concrete without suffering damage. To recall, the previously launched Chromebook 11 C771 was also shipped with the same resolution. Having the model number CB311, this new Chromebook is said to come with no compromises to the battery life. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use. Perhaps like Android app support, we'll see Assistant roll to other Chromebooks in the coming months. There is a microSD card reader to expand the onboard 16 GB or 32 GB storage. The Chromebook 11 starts at just $249, but features fairly low-end specs to match.

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.

We haven't any details yet on what, if any other colors will be available but we'll be catching up with our friends at Acer in Las Vegas this week and we will let you know more details as they unfold.

It will go on sale in March in the United States with base version starting $249.
