Acer launches a new Chromebook 11 with USB-C

But both the Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition and Chromebook 14 G5 have modest improvements over older models, with the choice of an Intel Celeron N3350 or N3450 processor, 8GB of memory and 64GB of storage.

Chrome OS is moving ahead nicely this CES with this time Acer announcing a brand new Chromebook coming to market this year.

HP is adding two Chromebooks to its lineup, which are essentially refreshed versions of its Chromebook 11 G5 that debuted in June 2016. This is not only evident in its smaller size with its 11.6-inch display (along with a 1366 x 768 resolution) but also with its lightweight design, as the new Chromebook 11 weighs in at just 2.43 pounds and measures only 0.71-inches in thickness. Additional hardware aspects worth noting include a microSD card slot and no less than four USB ports. To make up for it, there are ports galore with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two USB 3.1 Type-C ports so you can plug in all the things. It can also run Android apps.

Acer is releasing a new version of the Chromebook 11, which is a pretty standard low- to mid-range addition to its array of Chromebooks.

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 U.S. in April for US$249. Acer has yet to confirm whether all options and variants will be available in all regions.
