Acer has announced its new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (CP311-1H/CP311-1HN). The new convertible Acer Chromebook Spin 11 features a stylish design that can be used in four versatile usage modes. It also features all-day battery life and two USB 3.1 Type C ports for charging and connectivity to external displays.
In addition, the new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 supports Google Play and maximizes the functionality of the device’s 11.6-inch touchscreen display with stylus input. The optional stylus powered by Wacom EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology can be used with the Chromebook to provide digital writing experience that mimics actual pen and paper, said Acer.
“We are continually innovating to improve every product in our extensive Chromebook line,” said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer. “The new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 continues in the tradition of the Chromebook R 11, which won many awards for its design, performance and strong feature set, and now includes even more features that make life better for our customers, including the latest ports, all-day battery life and solid performance in a stylish, convertible design.”
The new design of the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 features a sleek silver cross-hairline pattern on the top cover. The new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 has 11.6-inch HD IPSii display with 1366×768 resolution. After using the keyboard for input in traditional notebook mode, users can open the touchscreen to a full 360° until it becomes a tablet. Plus, users can stand it up in display mode to get closer to the screen, or use it in tent-mode for small spaces, said Acer.
Acer Chromebook Spin 11 Features
The Acer HD webcam located above the keyboard has a wide field of view – so it’s good for including groups in video conferences and Google Hangouts. The optional second webcam is placed on the cover, so users can capture images and videos of their surroundings when in tablet mode.
The new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 includes two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data quickly up to 5Gbps, and connect to an HD display to share visuals. The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 also includes two USB 3.0 ports and a MicroSD card reader to access and transfer content.
Processor options on the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 include the Intel Pentium quad-core processor N4200, Intel Celeron quad-core processor N3450, or an Intel Celeron dual-core processor N3350. It also comes with 4GB or 8GB LPDDR4 memory and either 32GB or 64GB on–board eMMC storage.
