Acer Chromebook 11 packs USB-C and 10 hour battery

HP Chromebook 14 G5

The laptop will be showcased at CES 2018 and are low-mid range Chromebooks. With all of that, it still comes in at under 19mm thin, and weighs in at 2.8 pounds.

As one of the first Acer models to launch with Android app support, rather than have it added in with an update, the Chromebook 11 could have done with a bit more power: although we didn't get the chance to download any games, there's every chance it may struggle with more demanding apps - especially if you go for the 2GB RAM, 16GB storage model.

Battery life is claimed to be up to 10 hours on a single charge and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity ensures you can make the most of Chrome OS and the many online Google software apps, such as Google Docs and Gmail.

The Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition is "classroom-ready", as it's been ruggedized with co-molded rubber contact points. "The model numbers for these new devices are CB311-8HT and CB311-8H and they both offer up an 11.6" display.

The new Chromebook 11 device includes two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data quickly and connect to an HD display. The Chromebook 11 has a touch display option and a non-touch display one as well.

Moreover, a dual-speaker, HDR support, Four USB (2 each of Type C & Type A (3.0)) ports, and an expandable storage support are featured by the Chromebook.

The Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 will be available in North America in April with prices starting at US$249, and in EMEA in March with prices starting at €249.

What do you think of this new Chromebook line from Acer?

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.
