Acer Unveils New Android App-Ready Chromebook 11 - CES 2018

"Acer has made a bevy of pre-CES 2018 announcements today including their latest 11" Chromebook line.

The Acer Chromebook 11 provides access to the Google ecosystem including Google Drive, Gmail, and a variety of useful Chrome apps and extensions. "Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline".

Chromebooks have seemingly hit their stride this past year thanks to new hardware and the arrival of Android apps, but other Chrome OS form factors have seemingly gone silent.

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. "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". It features a 1.6gHz Intel Celeron N3060 processor, which HP claims is powerful enough to support video calls and video playback, and it should last 11 hours before needing a recharge. 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. It also has a microSD slot and comes standard with 802.11 ac 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi. Still, the device is a slim 0.71 inches thin and only weighs 2.43 pounds, which makes it decent for lugging around to the library and coffee shop like Acer intends you to. It also has an HDR webcam and dual stereo speakers with an integrated microphone.

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 USA in April for US$249.

Battery life may vary depending on usage. Based on Google power_LoadTest.
