Acer has just announced Chromebook Spin 11, Chromebook 11 C732, and Chromebox CXI3: three PCs which will be sold at affordable prices based on Chrome OS. Each of the models supports Google Play, so you will be able to install Android apps on them. The first one is a simple laptop and it has IP41 rating which makes it dust-resistant. It packs a quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 processor, up to 8 GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage depending on the variant chosen. It also comes with (optional) touch-screen.
Acer Chromebook Spin 11 is a convertible laptop whose screen can be rotated, and it supports touch and stylus input for handwriting and drawing. The stylus is based on the Wacom EMR technology (Electro-Magnetic Resonance). Under the hood, there is an Intel Celeron N3450 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage. At last, we got the Acer Chromebox CXI3, which is a sort of mini-PC powered by an Intel 8th gen processor (Apollo Lake). You can connect a mouse and a keyboard to it thanks to its USB-C port (you will need an external hub). It has 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 LE.
The prices for each model will be $299.99, $279.99 and $349.99: they will launch in the U.S. in March. The Spin 11 will also come in Europe, Middle East, and Africa in April, and it will cost €379.
