Acer and HP unveil new Chromebooks ahead of CES

The world leader in PC sales has two new Chromebooks to showcase at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, and the education-focused Chrome OS laptops are... nothing special.

While the Chromebook 14 G5 ports placed on the sides of the palm rest, the 11.6-inch variant has them on the upper corners, 9to5Google reports.

As the CES 2018 is knocking on the door, HP has come up with an announcement that includes a next-gen Chromebox and two new Chromebooks.

We're only talking Celeron processing power, with integrated Intel HD Graphics 500, so although mum's the word on retail pricing at the moment, it's pretty obvious students and teachers will be able to easily afford these two. The Chromebook R11 features fan-less design that makes it quiet and ideal to be used at shared spaces like a library or a coffee shop.

The Acer Chromebook 11 is powered by an unknown Intel Celeron processor which is paired with 4 GB RAM.

Above the display there's a high-dynamic range (HDR) camera, while the Chromebook 11 also has dual stereo speakers and a microphone. Of course with Android apps now standard on new Chromebooks (including this one), the touch version may be better for some applications.

Still, given most people look to Chrome OS for its balance of capabilities and affordability, we suspect more will pick the new Acer than cough up around four times the amount for the Pixelbook.

It comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, depending on your specifications choice, and models can have up to 4GB of RAM.

The Acer Chromebook 11 sports a plastic build, and, the company says that it will be available in several models in North America in April with a starting price of $249 (around ₹15,800).

It is expected to go on sale in March for $249.
