Acer launches budget-friendly Chromebook 11

The Chromebook 14 G5, as the name suggests, has a 14-inch screen size that is configurable with up to HD Touch feature. Other connectivity options include 2 USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.2, and 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity. The Celeron processor is passively cooled, meaning there are no fans to bother you with noise. There is a fanless design to keep the laptop quieter and on a single charge, it is said to be giving about 10 hours of battery life, following the good battery life offered by its predecessors as well. One is a touch display version and other is non-touch display version. 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.

The Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition has exactly the same hardware, but is much smaller (11 inches) and has a more robust body, capable of withstanding falls of up to 0.7 meters in pure concrete without suffering damage.

The laptop is powered by Intel's Celeron processor with 2 or 4GB of RAM, along with 16 or 32GB of internal storage.

I ran a few browser benchmarks since I like numbers, but the gist is that, in real world usage, the Chromebook 11 loads webpages pretty quickly. Also, the Acer Chromebook 11 will fully support Google Play at launch, so customers will have access to millions of Android apps on Google Play to let them have more fun, be entertained, stay connected and remain productive.

HP Chromebook 14 G5 sports a 14-inch screen and will be released in two resolution options - 1366x768p or 1920x1080p with both touch or non-touch screen variants on sale. An included microSD card slot can be used as extra storage space or transfer files and content. "Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline".

The HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be available in February, but there is no word on the pricing at this point.
