Looking for a Chromebook? Acer has got you covered. Their new Chromebook 11 line offers strong everyday performance and a portable design with all-day battery life of up to 10 hours. The new Acer Chromebook 11 (CB311-8HT / CB311-8H) has an 11.6-inch display powered by the latest Intel Celeron processor. Also under its hood are 16/32GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and a MicroSD card slot to store more apps and content. Why the low storage? For those who are not familiar with Chromebooks, the files used for apps like Google Docs and Gmail are stored in the cloud. This also means you need to be connected to WiFi whenever you need to use it.
The Acer Chromebook 11 has a portable and fanless design, which is great for consumers and families who will use the notebook around. 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). With the two USB 3.1 Type C ports, users can connect peripherals, charge smartphones or other devices or even connect it with a monitor.
“The new Acer Chromebook 11 continues Acer’s tradition of delivering strong performance with all the benefits of Chrome OS at an excellent value,” said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline. Customers can play games, stay productive, enjoy content and do even more with the new Acer Chromebook 11 thanks to its support of Google Play.”
If you are planning to buy a Chromebook but worried about its protection, you’ll be glad to know that the Chrome OS provides additional security since it’s automatically updated to guard against ever-changing online threats. 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. Chromebooks are easy to use and ideal for sharing by multiple users. Customers simply log into their own Google account to access their Gmail, Google Docs, apps, extensions, bookmarks, and other information.
Several models in the Acer Chromebook 11 line (CB311-8HT/ CB311-8H) will be available in North America in April with prices starting at $249, and in EMEA in March with prices starting at €249.
