Acer and HP unveil new Chromebooks ahead of CES

Posted January 09, 2018

Acer is doing a head start at the CES 2018 by announcing a new Chromebook. Not too thin, and not too thick, at under 19 mm, the HP Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5 start at 2.27 and 3.39 pounds respectively, which are fairly decent numbers for (semi) rugged machines created to survive kids as young as six.

Taiwanese technology conglomerate Acer has announced a new Chromebook at the ongoing CES 2018 tech show in Las Vegas, US. Acer has gone with a passively cooled Intel Celeron CPU, which is completely silent and fine for loading a handful of browser tabs, but push it much harder and things will inevitably slow to a crawl. But USB-C has remained rare in entry-level machines like the Chromebook 11.

In terms of the RAM and storage, the HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be offered with upto 8GB of RAM and upto 64GB of storage. The 11.6-inch IPS display has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and comes in touch and non-touch variants. To be precise, a touch supporting display bearing CB311-8HT model, and another non-touch version which carries the model number CB311-8. Customers can stay connected to their network with fast and reliable 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity. The notebook is equipped well enough for its price in the multimedia aspect as well with an HDR camera for Google Hangouts, dual stereo speakers, and an integrated microphone.
