Acer unveils new cheap Chromebook computer

The Taiwanese company Acer has announced a new Chrome OS-based notebook called Chromebook 11. The device is designed for people who travel often, do not need that much processing power and want to save some money.

The new Chromebook 11 comes with an 11.6-inch display, as its name suggests, that works at 1366 x 768 pixels. Inside the notebook is powered by an Intel Celeron processor but there’s no information on the exact chip model. The Chromebook 11 is available in two versions – the first one comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, while the second one sports 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage memory. In addition to this the notebook has USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI connector, a SD card reader and a battery that promises enough power for nine hours of work. All this is housed in an aluminum chassis that is 18.6 mm thick and that weighs just 1.1 kilograms (2.4 pounds).

The Chromebook 11 is now available for just USD 180 but we assume this is the price for the model with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory.
