[CES 2017] While Windows-based laptops are the more popular choice, Chromebooks are steadily gaining in popularity. This is because not only are Chromebooks on the cheaper end of laptops, but Chrome OS recently gained the ability to run Android apps, thus opening itself up to more functionality.
If you are in the market for a new Chromebook, Acer might have something for you in the form of the Chromebook 11 N7. This is the company’s latest Chromebook offering and one of the features that sets it apart from the competition is its ruggedness. Acer claims that the laptop meets the US MIL-STD 810G standards, meaning that it can no doubt without the abuse from daily usage and travel, but it can also withstand up to 132 pounds of downward force.
There are also corner-shields and a rubber keyboard bumper that helps protect it against drops from heights as high as 48-inches. There is also anti-slip pattern on the back of the laptop, and it also sports a spill-resistant keyboard. Basically this is a laptop that is ideal if you’re taking it out into the wild and you don’t want to have to worry about it getting damaged by drops or water.
For those who might be interested in such a laptop, the Acer Chromebook 11 N7 will be available this month with a price starting at $229.99.
