Acer announces Convertible Spin 11 Chromebook & Chromebook 11 C732

"The new Acer Chromebook 11 C732 delivers durability features typically found in much more expensive and specialized products". It is available with a touch display option that folds open to 180 degrees and offers the same ports and connectivity as the $349 Chromebook Spin 11.

At last, we got the Acer Chromebox CXI3, which is a sort of mini-PC powered by an Intel 8th gen processor (Apollo Lake). The Chromebook Spin 11 will also be available in March starting at $349USD. It also includes a microSD port and two USB-C ports, and supports Android apps through Google Play. Designed for families, students and individuals who want to embrace the ease and security of Chrome, the new convertible Acer Chromebook Spin 11 features a stylish design that can be used in four versatile usage modes.

But apparently, there's still room for two more in the Taiwanese company's extensive Chrome OS laptop portfolio, especially after Microsoft's announcement of new classroom-friendly Windows 10 and Windows 10 S devices. "It's 11.6" HD (1366×768) resolution screen is only available in touch screen but given its potential use in tablet mode it's understandable.

Acer may already be the champion of Chromebook diversity, selling more models through both consumer and education channels than we're willing to count right now, and unveiling another 11-inch version at CES earlier this month ahead of United States commercial availability in April. James Lin, general manager of commercial and detachable notebooks at Acer, said in the press release that the device could enable schools and educators to reach new environments for learning. They'll be available in the U.S. from March and Europe from April. It will go on sale in March. It also comes with 4 or 8GB LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB or 64GB eMMC storage. There are three processor options too, which are listed below. I absolutely adore a tiny desktop hooked up to a big monitor. It has the plastic construction you'd expect from a $350 laptop, and the Intel Pentium or Celeron processor inside isn't quite as fast as the Core i5 that comes with the MacBook Air. It connects to the Web via 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It comes with a stand for vertical orientation and an optional VESA mounting kit.

Australian pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed. There's no RAM or storage specs announced for the Chromebox CX13, but we know it will come with a USB Type-C port as well as five USB-A ports (there's a mix of USB 2.0 and 3.1), as well as a microSD card slot, ethernet jack and HDMI port. We should hopefully have more details about this little computer soon, so stay tuned.
