Acer this week announced a whole new range of laptops and notebooks. Among them was the new Chromebook 11, which offers an 11.6-inch IPS display in a portable and fanless design along with a 10 hour battery life.
Weighing in at 1.1 kg, the 18.15 mm thick Chromebook is available in both touch and non-touch models with a screen resolution of 1366×768. Connectivity to peripherals is done via two USB 3.1 Type C ports, two USB 3.0 ports and Bluetooth 4.2.
James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. stated that:
The new Acer Chromebook 11 continues Acer’s tradition of delivering strong performance with all the benefits of Chrome OS at an excellent value. Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline. Customers can play games, stay productive, enjoy content and do even more with the new Acer Chromebook 11 thanks to its support of Google Play.
As can be expected from a Chromebook, the 11 easily integrates into the Google ecosystem and users will have full access to the entire Google software suite and browser extensions. Performance comes courtesy of the latest Intel Celeron processor, and the Chromebook 11 comes equipped with 4GB of memory and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage – more than enough oomph for most productivity apps. The device’s fanless design ensures quiet operation, which makes using it in shared spaces an absolute dream.
Here is what it looks like:
