Acer Chromebook 11 with USB Type-C launched, priced from $249

Acer launches a new Chromebook 11 with USB-C

While you can't bend the screens all the way back, the 11 and 14-incher are "adjustable" at up to 180 degrees, supporting easy "collaboration" for group projects and presentations. And while the 11.6-inch display doesn't have the best resolution, coming in at 1366 x 768 HD, you can choose between a cheap model for $249, or a more expensive one with a touchscreen. Like all newly released Chromebooks, the Acer CB311 will come with Android Apps out of the box so you can get your Candy Crush on with no delay.

Acer has refreshed one of their popular Chromebooks with the new CB311 line. But USB-C has remained rare in entry-level machines like the Chromebook 11.

Rain and snow in the forecast
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and frigid temperatures continue, with a low temperature of 10 degrees. Day: Cloudy with a 70 percent chance for rain with around one-quarter inch possible.

Acer has announced a slew of new PC's as well as a new Chromebook here at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. It is actually pretty spacious considering this is an 11.6-inch Chromebook, but the bigger bezels around the display help make it larger for the keyboard (even though many would prefer the smaller bezels and a larger display, this does help make the Chromebook 11 a bit more rugged). It comes in two models CB311-8H and CB311-8HT.

The new Acer Chromebook is a fanless design running "the latest Intel Celeron processors" though Acer hasn't specified which ones. There will be a few variants on sale of the device with 2GB or 4GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage and touch or non-touch screen option. This year, with Android app support and especially USB-C, it's a sign that the average computing experience is moving forward-but gently, so you're not shut out of your precious USB-A peripherals just yet. An included microSD card slot can be used as extra storage space or transfer files and content. The Chromebooks will be available in black and dark grey color options.

Fire at Trump Tower in New York, US President safe in Washington
At least one firefighter suffered minor injuries after being hit by debris before being transported to the hospital. Starting around 7 a.m., smoke billowed from one corner of the building for a while before most of it dissipated.

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.

Exact specifications and available will vary depending on your region, as will prices. For our first stop here at CES, we dropped by Acer to take a look at this laptop.
