[CES 2018] While Chromebook laptops might not necessarily offer up the same kind of functionality that you would from a normal Windows or Mac laptop, it does benefit from generally being more affordable, and is great if you’re a light-weight user who might not demand much from their laptops.


Last year we saw Acer launch several new Chromebooks, and this year they are back with a new Chromebook 11 model. As the name implies, this Chromebook will sport an 11.6-inch display and will actually be available in both touch and non-touchscreen options. It will be powered by Intel’s Celeron processors and will come with 4GB of RAM, and 16-32GB of eMMC storage.

The laptop will also feature two USB-C ports, a microSD card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.2, and 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity. It also boasts up to 10 hours of battery life, but as always, your mileage may vary depending on how you use your laptop. The Acer Chromebook 11 will also be relatively thin at 0.71-inches and will weigh 2.43 pounds.

As expected it will run on Chrome OS and will give users access to the different services and tools from Google. As for pricing, the Acer Chromebook 11 will be priced starting at $249 for the non-touchscreen model and will be available in North America starting in April. It will launch in the EMEA region in March with prices starting at €249.
