Acer’s new Chromebook 11 has USB-C and Android app support, starts at $249

Acer has just announced its new Chromebook 11 (CB311-8H/T). Although this new Chromebook has USB-C support for power and peripherals, as well as an alleged 10-hour battery, its specs are balanced by a low-resolution display and an uncertain Celeron-badged processor. Starting at $ 249 and available in touch and non-touch versions, this new model doesn’t actually go on sale until later this year—April in the US and March for the rest of the world. 

Specs

Screen 11.6″ 1366×768, touch and non-touch
CPU Untitled Intel Celeron
Storage 16/32GB
RAM 4GB
Peripherals 2x USB-C 3.1 Gen 1, 2x USB 3.0, MicroSD,
Wireless Bluetooth 4.2, 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi
Camera “HDR”
Audio Dual stereo speakers, mic
Dimensions 0.71″ (18.15 mm) thin, 2.43 lbs (1.1 kg)

Acer didn’t provide the exact model number for the CPU in the Chromebook 11, but based on the price and fanless design, it’s likely to be one of the lower-end versions (read: basically an Atom).
