  • Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition

Yesterday, Acer introduced some exciting additions to their product line, including the Acer Swift 7, the Acer Spin 3 and their new Chromebook 11 line. Connectivity is another big aspect here, as you'll enjoy two USB 3.0 ports, and for the first time, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports.

The Chromebook 11 features an 11.6 inch IPS display which is going to be available either as touch or non-touch with 1366×768 resolution.

That's particularly the case for high-end VR systems like the Vive or rival Oculus Rift , a headset from Facebook's Oculus unit. It runs in the 60GHz band to cut down on potential interference and uses Intel's WiGig specifications.

The real story is what's under the hood - while the base configuration features Intel's dual-core Celeron 3865U, you can step up to either the seventh-generation Core i5-7300U or the eighth-generation Core i7-8650U.

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. It is a budget-friendly Chromebook and comes with USB Type-C charging. While other companies are holding off launches of their latest products for the CES 2018, HP went ahead and unveiled its newest pair of Chromebooks named Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5.

Furthermore, the Acer Chromebook 11 is 18.15 mm thin and weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1 kg) which makes it lightweight and portable enough to carry around easily. It has a fanless design that makes it quieter. The device already supports Android apps but there may still be limits on what apps can run. The Acer Chromebook 11 comes with 4GB of memory and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use. Buyers will also be offered to opt for higher storage of up to 64GB on both the Chromebooks, but there should also be a microSD card slot on the devices for bumping up the external storage.

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. HP Chromebook 14 G5 will go on sale in February as well and the pricing remains a mystery.

"Nvidia announces 65" 120Hz displays with 4k resolution, HDR and g-sync
Even though a remote and Shield controller are included, you don't actually need them to interact with the display. With support for the Google Assistant , the entire experience can be controlled simply by using your voice.

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.
