A new Acer Chromebook 11 has showed up at Computex Taipei 2017. This one is a beast when it comes to specs, 8 GB RAM, Core i5 or Core i3 processor and a touchscreen. This however is not a convertible model.
Why you ask? Because this is a Chromebook for the education market. Now, don’t ask me who will buy 8 GB RAM and i5 Chromebooks for students, and I have no answer for that question. It is hard to beleieve that Acer will make such a device without any information about the market.
Here is the pecs sheet, at least what is available for now:
- 7th Gn Intel Coe i3/i5 Celeron Processors
- Military Grade Impact Resistence
- Unique Liquid Drainage Design
- Up to 13-hour Battery Life.
RAM options are available from 2GB to 8GB. That sounds more like an Education Chromebook.
USB Type C Included
The design looks neat and solid. For ports, you get USB Type C, HDMI, USB-A 3.0, and headphone jack on the left. On the right, you get a MicroSD card slot, another USB-A and Kensington lock.
The device does not have Play Store support yet, but that’s not surprising given the way things are going these days.
We should wait for more details in coming days, from Acer or from an Amazon listing. Stay tuned for more!
