Acer's latest Chromebook offers 10 hours of battery for $250

Acer's latest Chromebook offers 10 hours of battery for $250

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. The base model lands with a Celeron 3865U, and there are upgrades available with the Intel Core i5-7300U, and the brand new Intel Core i7 8650U. While other companies are holding off launches of their latest products for the CES 2018, HP went ahead and unveiled its newest pair of Chromebooks named Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5.

Out of the box you'll have support for Android apps, along with the regular Chrome apps and extensions. The Chomebox G2 has a microSD card slot, a single HDMI port, a USB-C port, 3 USB 3.0 ports, and an Ethernet hookup. Both models come with two USB 3.1 Type-C ports which can be used for a variety of things.

Acer will be offering both touch and non-touch versions of the Chromebook 11. The Chromebook will include Bluetooth 4.2, as well as 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and an HDR video conferencing camera. This is not only evident in its smaller size with its 11.6-inch display (along with a 1366 x 768 resolution) but also with its lightweight design, as the new Chromebook 11 weighs in at just 2.43 pounds and measures only 0.71-inches in thickness. "Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline". 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. Acer's previous Chromebooks have been some of the most popular laptops in recent sales events like Black Friday and Amazon's Prime Day, invariably selling out more quickly than their Windows 10 counterparts. If you're looking for an affordable solution with a decent battery life, Acer's Chromebook 11 will hit Europe, the Middle East and Africa in March and reach North America in April. Acer has yet to confirm whether all options and variants will be available in all regions.
