A couple of months ago, tech company Acer let us know that they will be launching what seemed to be an upgrade to their well-known Acer Chromebook 11 series. Nevertheless, the lineup was not exactly an ordinary set of devices.

The newest Chromebook 11 is rather powerful as it’s underpinned by the Skylake range of SoCs developed by Intel. Later reports suggested that the new model will be powered by a Celeron 3855U, Core i3 or i5 processors.

Yesterday, the company has officially unveiled the device. The rumors turned out to be accurate because the manufacturer confirmed that their new Chromebook will come packing the 6th generation of processors produced by Intel and it’s available with either a touch or non-touch panel.

Anyway, the new Acer Chromebook 11 will come running Chrome OS and will be based on the aforementioned processors. Further, the Celeron unit will feature 4 GB of RAM, while the Core i5 one will boast 8 GB of RAM. The internal storage will be 32 GB, but we hope that the Core versions will offer double that amount. The display will meaure 11.6 inches and will have a resolution of 1366 x 768. Moreover, it will have a battery that promises 13 hours of usage, and in terms of connectivity it will sport a USB-C 3.1, two USB 3.0, HDMI, MicroSD and combo headphone jack.

While the technical specifications might not be that impressive, we really appreciate the Intel Core processors in particular. What does impress us is the price tag, since the new Acer Chromebook 11 will be available at a price beginning at $279.99.
