Acer and HP unveil new Chromebooks ahead of CES

In terms of difference, the 11.6-inch Chromebook sees the biggest change with a change in position of ports.

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 are all driven by Intel Celeron processors.

Compared to the previous Chromebook 11 series from the house of Acer, the new Chromebook will be more portable and compact. The Chromebook 11 G6 and 14 G5 are said to be an upgrade to the company's last-generation Chromebook. It comes in two models CB311-8H and CB311-8HT.

Astronaut John Young, who walked on moon twice, dies
He was part of the Apollo 10 crew that orbited the moon in May 1969 in preparation for the first landing later that year. Spaceflight just lost one of its better-known icons: NASA astronaut John Young has died at the age of 87.

The Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 comes with the 11.6-inch display with still the HD resolution, i.e. 1366 x 768 pixels, just like its predecessor, i.e. the Chromebook C771.

There are actually two USB-C ports, so you can use one to top up the battery and a second for copying files from a phone or memory stick. For connectivity, it includes the support for 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2.

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

Mariota leads Titans to 22-21 comeback win over Chiefs
They haven't won a home playoff game since January 1994, when Joe Montana was under center, and only two in their entire history. Ryan Succop hit a 49-yard field goal to cut the Chiefs' lead to 14-3 with 1:55 remaining in the first half.

Chromebooks have seemingly hit their stride this past year thanks to new hardware and the arrival of Android apps, but other Chrome OS form factors have seemingly gone silent.

What do you think of this new Chromebook line from Acer? It provides an internal storage of 32GB that can be expanded up to 64GB. Hence, you can easily carry the Chromebook to any place on the go.

Availability wise, Acer has said that the Chromebook will appear in the European, Middle Eastern, and African markets in March where the base model will start at €249, before launching in the USA in April for US$249.
