The Chromebook R 11, Acer’s first of its kind, is a portable notebook designed to modify and transition based on what is most comfortable to the user and setting. There are four modes of usage: display, laptop, pad, and tent. Although Acer already provides Chromebooks ranging from 11 to 15 inches, the convertible series provides an addition of comfort to the user as customers can manipulate the notebook through its 360-degree dual-torque hinge design. The Convertible Chromebook not only is capable of evolving through different modes but is also portable, weighing less the 1.25 kg and as thin as 19.2mm. The computer comes equipped with an Intel Celeron processor, 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac wireless connection, and a USB 3.0 port. The LED-backlit LCD screen uses a 10-point touch which supports Tap, Swipe, and Pinch to Zoom actions. Additionally, the notebook includes an 11.6-inch HD screen complete with an HD webcam with HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging.
The new and dynamic Acer Chromebook R 11 will be available in the US in October with costs starting at $299.
