After yesterday’s debut of fresh Lenovo educational laptops and convertibles, Acer has a few newcomers of its own, in the form of fresh Chromebook lines. Those are meant both for schools and the everyday laptop user. The newcomers are Chromebook Spin 11 and Chromebook 11 C732 Series.
The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (CP311-1H/CP311-1HN) starts at $349 and the Chromebook 11 C732 Series at $300. They’re obviously lower powered devices, with HD screens. The brand new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 comes with a 360 degree convertible design, with rotating hinge in the mix. There’s also stylus input support, while the C732 can be configured with a touch display.
It’ll resist drops, spills and other sorts of accidents. The Chromebook Spin 11 is a bit better looking, thanks to a cross hairline pattern of the top cover. Inside we find a modest choice of Intel Pentium or Celeron chipset, 4 and 8 GB RAM options and 32 or 64 GB of storage (eMMC). There’s also the promise of “all day battery life”, two USB type-C 3.1 ports, two USB 3.0 ports too and a microSD card slot.
Chromebook Spin 11 arrives in North America this March, then it reaches EMEA in April.
Acer Chromebook 11 C732 Series is meant for both educational and commercial users. It’ll arrive in March, with a 12 hour battery life, the same ports as the other model and up to 8 GB of RAM. There’s also a choice between 16, 32 and 64 GB of storage and powering it up is an Intel Celeron CPU. 4G LTE in optional fashion is also available here.
