HP announces new Chromebooks designed for education

HP Chromebook 14 G5

To cater to the same segment, Acer and HP has unveiled new Chromebook models recently, which will be showcased at the CES trade fair.

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.

Just looking at the image gallery below, you will be impressed with the simple yet stylish design of the new Acer Chromebook 11. There are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports as well, for legacy connections, together with a microSD card reader.

A fanless design on the Intel Celeron CPU ensures that the Chromebook 11 chugs along quietly.

The device is powered by seventh-generation Intel Celeron N3350 and N3450 chips, and comes with up to 8GB RAM and 64GB of storage. You can choose from either the touch or non-touch variant also know as the CB311-8HT or CB311-8H model.


Either way, you get two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, either of which can be used to charge the Chromebook, or to connect data devices or an external display. Hence, all most all Android apps are supported by this compact form of laptop. Customers can stay connected to their network with fast and reliable 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity.

The brand new Chromebox packs a 7th-gen Kaby Lake chipset, as well as an 8th-gen Kaby Lake refresh, together providing amazingly advanced performance 'over the original processor.' It runs the Chrome OS and has 2 memory slots, along with 16GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM.

It comes with an HDR webcam for video calling and has dual stereo speakers with an integrated microphone.

Several models in the Acer Chromebook 11 line (CB311-8HT/CB311-8H) will be available in North America in April with prices starting at $249USD, and in EMEA in March with prices starting at €249.
