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.

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.

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.
