The new Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor the Braswell-powered Acer C731 and offers numerous familiar features while bringing some much-needed updates to the table.
Furthermore, the Acer Chromebook 11 is 18.15 mm thin and weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1 kg) which makes it lightweight and portable enough to carry around easily. Each has an Intel Celeron processor, paired with 4GB of RAM. That said, other specifications and features of the Chromebook 11 includes two USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.2, 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, up to 32 GB of storage, and, up to 10 hours of battery life. In terms of design, the Chromebook 11 G6 has witnessed a change in position of ports (USB Type-C and USB Type-A). The design also comes without fans, which should keep things nice and quiet. You can choose from either the touch or non-touch variant also know as the CB311-8HT or CB311-8H model. It has two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 3.1 Type-C ports.
