  • Acer launches a new Chromebook 11 with USB-C

To cater to the same segment, Acer and HP has unveiled new Chromebook models recently, which will be showcased at the CES trade fair.

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.

The biggest change is the addition of two USB-C ports, which will allow it to use USB-C displays, be charged with a standardized USB-C charger, and also quick-charge the latest Android phones.

Powered by an Intel Celeron processor, the Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 will be available in both 2GB and 4GB RAM variants. Road warriors will appreciate the impressive 10-hour battery life. It's great to see that Acer has given us a USB-C port on each side, so no matter where the outlet is, you can charge from either port.

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. With any luck, the Acer Chromebook 11 will deliver a bright, crisp viewing experience for its users. It comes in two models CB311-8H and CB311-8HT. The Chromebook is pretty slim at 0.71 inches and weighs 2.43 pounds. An included microSD card slot can be used as extra storage space or transfer files and content. Google's still working on making these apps more Chromebook-friendly, but their simple availability has increased the usefulness of Chromebooks beyond education and basic web browsing.

The HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be available in February, but there is no word on the pricing at this point. The Chromebook 11 will also be available in EMEA countries with a starting price of €249 (around ₹18,930) in March, however, exact specifications, price and date of availability will be announced later. As Acer looks into the future, it is focused on enabling a world where hardware, software and services will fuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike.
