  • HP Chromebook 11 G6

The new Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor the Braswell-powered Acer C731 and offers numerous familiar features while bringing some much-needed updates to the table.

While the Chromebook 14 G5 ports placed on the sides of the palm rest, the 11.6-inch variant has them on the upper corners, 9to5Google reports. The Acer Chromebook 11 announced at CES this year weighs just 1.1 kg and aims to bring good performance in a portable design (18.15 mm thick) with a 10 hour battery life. Acer says these new Chromebooks are flawless for everyday use with their super portable design and up to 10-hours of battery life. It will also be powered by Intel Celeron processor and pack USB Type-C ports. With any luck, the Acer Chromebook 11 will deliver a bright, crisp viewing experience for its users. The Chromebook 11 G6 will come with a USB Type-C port. HP claims that the dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 is more power efficient and the quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 comes with RAM configurable up to 8GB.

There are two versions of this new Chromebook 11, one with a touchscreen display and other without a touchscreen display. There is a microSD card reader to expand the onboard 16 GB or 32 GB storage.


Still, given most people look to Chrome OS for its balance of capabilities and affordability, we suspect more will pick the new Acer than cough up around four times the amount for the Pixelbook. It will be available either in 2GB or 4GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage.

The new HP Chromebook will be released in April, with a price yet to be disclosed. Acer Chromebook will be available in retail stores in March 2018 at a starting price of $249 for the basic model. The Chromebook will include Bluetooth 4.2, as well as 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and an HDR video conferencing camera.
