The disadvantage of Acer Chromebook 11 is the low resolution of 1366×768 for the 11.6-inch display. Here's what you need to know. It will also be powered by Intel Celeron processor and pack USB Type-C ports. The Acer Chromebook 11 also comes with support for Android apps, which opens up the notebook to the plethora of games, productivity, and multimedia apps in the Play Store.

Like the C731 before it, the latest Acer Chromebook 11 comes with an optional touch display and 16GB or 32GB storage options. On the base Celeron model, you get Intel HD Graphics, and on the Core i-series models, the G2 can hook up with a UHD display thanks to Intel UHD Graphics 620. To recall, the previously launched Chromebook 11 C771 was also shipped with the same resolution. The device's fanless design allows it to run quietly, making it great for shared spaces such as in a family room, library or coffee shop.

Battery life is claimed to be up to 10 hours on a single charge and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity ensures you can make the most of Chrome OS and the many online Google software apps, such as Google Docs and Gmail.

In terms of difference, the 11.6-inch Chromebook sees the biggest change with a change in position of ports.

As for the size, it is quite easy to carry around with the thickness of 0.71-inch and the laptop weighs only 2.43 pounds.

So, it's quiet enough to not bother people around you, it lasts long enough for long study sessions, and you'll have plenty of ports for accessories. There are several models of the Chromebook 11 line which will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in March with prices starting from £249. Storage is either 16 GB or 32 GB of eMMC, though of course the expectation is that you'll keep most of your content in Google Drive in the cloud.

Durability has to be a key area of focus for any classroom-friendly computer, and HP's refreshed Chromebooks are no exception, withstanding (some) bumps and drops and shipping with spill-resistant keyboards in tow.
