"Acer announces their latest 11" Chromebook ahead of CES 2018

Either way, you get two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, either of which can be used to charge the Chromebook, or to connect data devices or an external display. Plus, customers can use the MicroSD card reader to access and transfer content. With that said, that striking blue color, combined with the black touchpad, palm rest, and keyboard areas, does give the Chromebook 11 some character. Customers can stay connected to their network with fast and reliable 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity.

Unfortunately, the Chromebook 11 has a bad resolution for a modern laptop - its 11.6-inch display only has a 1366 x 768 resolution, like its predecessor, the Chromebook 11 C771, which was launched last August and aimed at students.

Still, given most people look to Chrome OS for its balance of capabilities and affordability, we suspect more will pick the new Acer than cough up around four times the amount for the Pixelbook.

Finally, the Chromebook 11 comes with Google Play Store support out of the box.

The laptop is powered by Intel's Celeron processor with 2 or 4GB of RAM, along with 16 or 32GB of internal storage. The high-dynamic range (HDR) camera produces clear and brighter photos as well as video for Google Hangouts and webchats. The whole thing is 0.71-inches thick and weighs 2.43 pounds.

If you couldn't already tell, the Chromebook 11 is meant for those not looking for hardcore productivity. Chrome OS provides additional security since it's automatically updated to guard against ever-changing online threats. That being said, it will be available this April starting at $250 for the most basic options.

These models will first arrive in European, Middle Eastern, and African markets in March starting at €249, while North American retailers will see the Chromebooks a month later for $249. Actual battery life varies depending on product specifications, computer settings and applications or features launched.
