HP anticipates CES 2018 announcing two Chromebooks and a Chromebox

Acer launches a new Chromebook 11 with USB-C

HP is readying two new Chromebooks to be shown at CES 2018 next before hitting markets in February 2018. Plus, connecting peripherals, charging phones and other devices, and even sharing content on a large display can be done thanks to the Acer Chromebook 11's two USB 3.1 Type C ports.

The Chromebook 11 features an 11.6 inch IPS display which is going to be available either as touch or non-touch with 1366×768 resolution.

Customers can also enjoy multiple apps and tabs at the same time on the Acer Chromebook 11, since it delivers strong performance with the latest Intel Celeron processors. Road warriors will appreciate the impressive 10-hour battery life. And yes, the Google Play Store is available on the Chromebook 11 here. It is a budget-friendly Chromebook and comes with USB Type-C charging. With a weight of 2.43 pounds, the laptop measures 0.71-inch thickness and looks slim.

Internal storage options are limited - you can only pick between 32 GB and 64 GB of storage - though both options arrive in speedy M.2 SSDs. To be precise, a touch supporting display bearing CB311-8HT model, and another non-touch version which carries the model number CB311-8.

Prosecutors in pot-friendly states will decide on crackdown
Coos County Sherriff Craig Zanni said, "This is now a federal issue related to a change of federal prosecutor's directives". Walker said he's committed to upholding the will of Alaska voters, who legalized recreational pot use in 2014.

The Acer Chromebook 11 will be available in the United Kingdom and Europe from March. Just like any other Chromebook it runs on ChromeOS and is now also compatible with Android apps. It also has a microSD card reader. "Chromebooks are widely known as a fast, easy and secure way to work and play both online and offline". Certain intensive Android apps, like Asphalt 8, bogged the machine down at points, but I can't say that I was too surprised - funnily enough, the game actually failed to render when I loaded into a race. But it has not announced pricing for the different configuration options (touch screen versus non touch, 16GB versus 32GB of storage, etc).

We haven't any details yet on what, if any other colors will be available but we'll be catching up with our friends at Acer in Las Vegas this week and we will let you know more details as they unfold.

The Chromebook 11 will launch in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East in March, and in North America in April, for a base price of $249.
