Acer launches new Chromebook 11 series

Share

It boasts up to 10 hours of battery life.

On the decidedly bright side, the refreshed 11-inch Spin has a 360-degree convertible design, standard touch functionality and stylus input going for it, while the less versatile C732 can be configured with a touch display, also resisting drops, spills and other indoor and outdoor accidents. There are quite a few configuration options available to customers so they can pick and choose based on their requirements.

As the model name suggests, the Chromebook Spin 11 is an 11.6-inch laptop.

The Spin 11 is by no means a Pixelbook challenging device, but when it goes on sale in April it will be a fraction of the price at €379, or about £330.

Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region. This new Chromebook model is designed and developed for business and classroom, including the new Chromebook 11 C732 laptop and the brand new CX13 Chromebook. However, the new device will be available to general consumers. The new Spin 11 offers an 11.6-inch touchscreen display at a 1,366x768 resolution that supports an optionally available Wacom stylus.

The Spin 11 comes with options for quad-core Intel Pentium (N4200), quad-core Celeron (N3450), or dual-core Celeron (N3350) processors, backed by between 4 GB to 8 GB of RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB of storage.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 follows its predecessors with an inexpensive price starting at $349 (versions with more than the standard 32GB cost a bit more, although the company did not say how much more). They'll be available in the U.S. from March and Europe from April.

This morning, Acer is announcing a couple of new devices at the Bett show in London, which is an industry show focusing on education technology. There are three processor options too, which are listed below.

"With solid performance powered by up to 8th Gen Intel Core processors, the Acer Chromebox CXI3 is a great choice for desktop scenarios in computer labs and libraries". There's no RAM or storage specs announced for the Chromebox CX13, but we know it will come with a USB Type-C port as well as five USB-A ports (there's a mix of USB 2.0 and 3.1), as well as a microSD card slot, ethernet jack and HDMI port.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 are included, with a 4G model tipped to be available later. It comes with a stand for vertical orientation and an optional VESA mounting kit. Many Chromebook customers store their files on Google Drive (3) 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.
