Acer Chromebook 11 with USB-C Launched

Acer Chromebook 11 with USB-C Launched

A few different versions of the Chromebook are making their debut in Las Vegas this week. The Chromebook offers quick access to Google Drive so you can store and backup files in the cloud since there is only a maximum of 32GB memory.

The new Acer Chromebook is a fanless design running "the latest Intel Celeron processors" though Acer hasn't specified which ones.

There are two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, with either able to be used to charge the device. Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO are also onboard as standard. Moreover, the Chromebook also includes a web camera with support for HDR coupled with dual stereo speakers and an integrated microphone.

While the Chromebook 14 G5 ports placed on the sides of the palm rest, the 11.6-inch variant has them on the upper corners, 9to5Google reports. Hence, all most all Android apps are supported by this compact form of laptop. That's something we've seen particularly boost the everyday usability of Chromebooks like Google's Pixelbook, though Acer undercuts Google's own model significantly. You can use it as either a touch tablet or a laptop when you need to do more serious work.

"The new Acer Chromebook 11 continues Acer's tradition of delivering strong performance with all the benefits of Chrome OS at an excellent value". Acer's previous Chromebooks have been some of the most popular laptops in recent sales events like Black Friday and Amazon's Prime Day, invariably selling out more quickly than their Windows 10 counterparts.

Availability wise, Acer has said that the Chromebook will appear in the European, Middle Eastern, and African markets in March where the base model will start at €249, before launching in the United States in April for US$249.
