Acer to unwrap Google Play Store featuring Chromebook 11 at CES 2018

HP has announced its latest range of Chromebook laptops ahead of CES 2018.

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. Just two days before the annual Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in Las Vegas, Acer Inc. has announced the release of a new generation of their popular Chromebook 11.

Just looking at the image gallery below, you will be impressed with the simple yet stylish design of the new Acer Chromebook 11. It will also be powered by Intel Celeron processor and pack USB Type-C ports.

Acer's Chromebook 11 is so mainstream you might overlook it.

"The Acer Chromebook comes with an 11.6" IPS HD (1366 x 768) resolution display in both touch (CB311-8HT) and non-touch (CB311-8H). Meanwhile, its CB311-8H counterpart will use the same LCD panel, but rely on the trackpad for control instead of touch. Don't run in a panic to the dongle store-you still get two USB 3.0 Type-A ports (whew!). The Chromebook will include Bluetooth 4.2, as well as 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and an HDR video conferencing camera.

She says that El Salvador has received significant global aid and that much of the country's infrastructure is rebuilt. The "temporary protected status", as it is known, lasts for about two years before needing to be renewed.

Out of the box you'll have support for Android apps, along with the regular Chrome apps and extensions.

There are two versions of this new Chromebook 11, one with a touchscreen display and other without a touchscreen display.

As one of the early backers of Chrome OS, Acer has a lot invested into the platform. The Acer Chromebook 11 will be available in North America in April with prices starting from US$249 and in the EMEA in March at prices starting from Euro 249.

It comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, depending on your specifications choice, and models can have up to 4GB of RAM.
