While Acer didn't release exact specs for the models - we only know they'll sport the 'latest Intel Celeron processors, ' for example - but did note they'll come with 4GB of memory and either 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage.
The new Chromebook 11 device includes two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data quickly and connect to an HD display. The new models in the lineup are the Chromebook 14 GS and Chromebook 11 G6 and these are aimed at the business and education sectors.
The display of both the laptops can be rotated up to 180-degrees. These laptops that run Chrome OS can also run Android apps available in the Google Play Store.
Concerning the build and durability aspect, the Chromebook 11 G6 comes with MIL-STD 810G military proofing, which should leave it unimpacted from drops and harsh conditions.
The Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5 will be hitting the sale shelves sometime in February, though we can expect the company to give a proper demo at the CES 2018.
The Chromebook 14 G5, as the name suggests, has a 14-inch screen size that is configurable with up to HD Touch feature. The Chromebook 14 G5 have the ports at the sides of the palm rest while the 11 G6 appears to have the ports at the upper corners, claims a report by 9to5Google citing a CNET report.
HP Chromebook 14 GS and Chromebook 11 G6 are touted to be durable. Buyers will also be offered to opt for higher storage of up to 64GB on both the Chromebooks, but there should also be a microSD card slot on the devices for bumping up the external storage. The device is said to have a detachable keyboard and look similar to the Galaxy Book.
Acer has carved a niche for itself with its affordable but capable Chromebooks, and the new Chromebook 11 range updated at CES 2018 looks set to be no different. They had 360-degree rotating touch screen and supported a built-in digitized pen for increased productivity.
