Acer Unveil Chromebook 11 With Fanless Design

Several models in the Acer Chromebook 11 line will be available in North America in April with prices starting at $249USD

The Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5 will be hitting the sale shelves sometime in February, though we can expect the company to give a proper demo at the CES 2018. Add to that the small 11.6-inch display, and it can be packed in your bag easily.

There are two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, with either able to be used to charge the device.

The Acer Chromebook 11 is powered by an unknown Intel Celeron processor which is paired with 4 GB RAM. It also offers up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge, so should be good for a whole day's work.

Acer has refreshed one of their popular Chromebooks with the new CB311 line.

Acer has also updated the port selection on the Chromebook 11. Built on lightweight design in focus, the new Chromebook 11 is of 2.43 pounds in weight and the thickness of mere 0.71 inches.

4GB RAM and 16GB/32GB storage configurations will be available

Along with that, you get 4GB RAM (no upgrade option), a MicroSD card reader and it all comes in at just under 2.5 lbs and roughly 18mm thick. This new Chromebook, which carries model number CB311-8HT/CB311-8H, is called the Acer Chromebook 11, and, going by its specifications, it falls right into the low to mid-range category. This year, with Android app support and especially USB-C, it's a sign that the average computing experience is moving forward-but gently, so you're not shut out of your precious USB-A peripherals just yet. Which makes it easier for using Android apps and games.

Google Assistant is noticeably missing, despite the Pixelbook being out for a few months now, meaning that we should, in theory, see it on other Chromebooks - then again, it's possible that Google didn't make Assistant available to partners soon enough for CES and the various product launches.

The new HP Chromebook will be released in April, with a price yet to be disclosed. But it has not announced pricing for the different configuration options (touch screen versus non touch, 16GB versus 32GB of storage, etc).

The Acer Chromebook 11 starts at £249 and features an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 IPS 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.
