HP takes wraps off its newest Chromebooks ahead of CES 2018

Acer refreshes the Chromebook 11 with USB C ports and a $249 price tag

While only a few days are left for the CES 2018 to kick-off, it seems Acer has booked an exclusive event for introducing an upgraded Chromebook 11.

While you can't bend the screens all the way back, the 11 and 14-incher are "adjustable" at up to 180 degrees, supporting easy "collaboration" for group projects and presentations. Other specs on the devices include two USB Type-C ports and headphone jack. The first gadget (christened the Chromebook 14 G5 ) has powerful specifications: 14-inch screen, Intel Celeron N3450 or N3350, up to 8 GB of RAM and a maximum of 64 GB of internal storage.

10 hours of battery life and Google Play support make this a great budget laptop. Of course with Android apps now standard on new Chromebooks (including this one), the touch version may be better for some applications.

Acer has announced a new Chromebook line that will sport USB-C connections and support Google Play, so can play and run millions of Android apps on the device itself.

Concerning the build and durability aspect, the Chromebook 11 G6 comes with MIL-STD 810G military proofing, which should leave it non-impacted from drops and harsh conditions. "The slim and portable form factor makes the Acer Chromebook 11 ideal for use anywhere; it measures only 0.71 inches (18.15mm) thin and weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1kg)", says Acer. It also has a microSD card reader. Many Chromebook customers store their files on Google Drive which protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version of the file or document is always available and safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen.

The Chromebook 11 will launch in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East in March, and in North America in April, for a base price of $249.

We haven't any details yet on what, if any other colors will be available but we'll be catching up with our friends at Acer in Las Vegas this week and we will let you know more details as they unfold. The pricing will start at $249.
