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. 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.

Acer has carved a niche for itself with its affordable but capable Chromebooks, and the new Chromebook 11 range updated at CES 2018 looks set to be no different.

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. It will also be powered by Intel Celeron processor and pack USB Type-C ports. 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. Meanwhile, its CB311-8H counterpart will use the same LCD panel, but rely on the trackpad for control instead of touch. The Chromebook 11 G6 will come with a USB Type-C port. Plus, customers can use the MicroSD card reader to access and transfer content. Other specs include Bluetooth 4.2 and 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
