"Acer announces their latest 11" Chromebook ahead of CES 2018

Both the Chromebooks feature 1366 x 768 resolution displays that may not sit well with the ones who opt for the larger screen Chromebook, we think that HP should have thrown in an option for 1080p resolution display.

The biggest change is the addition of two USB-C ports, which will allow it to use USB-C displays, be charged with a standardized USB-C charger, and also quick-charge the latest Android phones. There is even an optional touch-screen variant, which will come in handy for its Google Play Android app support. The Acer Chromebook 11 also includes two USB 3.0 ports and Bluetooth 4.2.

Google Unites Payment Offerings As Google Pay
All said and done, digital payment efforts by either Google or Apple in India didn't seem to have taken off as expected. Ars Technica highlights this baffling tendency in its report, "By our count, this is Google's fifth payment brand".

Acer's hiding a quiet revolution in its mainstream Chromebook 11: two USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps) Type-C ports, which work for connectivity and for charging. Built on lightweight design in focus, the new Chromebook 11 is of 2.43 pounds in weight and the thickness of mere 0.71 inches. Meanwhile, its CB311-8H counterpart will use the same LCD panel, but rely on the trackpad for control instead of touch.

A fanless design on the Intel Celeron CPU ensures that the Chromebook 11 chugs along quietly. There is a microSD card reader to expand the onboard 16 GB or 32 GB storage. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use. It will feature three different processor options (Intel Core i5-7300U, Core i7-8650U, or Celeron 3865U), up to 16GB of RAM and a maximum of 64GB of internal storage. Google's still working on making these apps more Chromebook-friendly, but their simple availability has increased the usefulness of Chromebooks beyond education and basic web browsing.

Kanye West fulfills fan dying of cancer's final wish
Last May a young man named Tyler Wesley marked the five-year anniversary of his spinal cord injury that left him in a wheelchair. A family friend later tweeted about Kanye West's sweet gesture that made the girl so happy in her final moments.

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.

HP has not revealed pricing for either device, but that may be available next week at CES 2018 where the devices will be on display. For our first stop here at CES, we dropped by Acer to take a look at this laptop.
