The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 follows its predecessors with an inexpensive price starting at $349 (versions with more than the standard 32GB cost a bit more, although the company did not say how much more).

The new convertible Acer Chromebook Spin 11 provides all-day battery life, two USB 3.1 Type C ports, Google Play support, the latest Intel processors and can be used in four versatile usage modes. Spin is 11.65 inches wide and 8.11 inches deep and has a 12 hours battery life on a single charge.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (CP311-1H/CP311-1HN) and Chromebook 11 C732 Series make as few compromises as humanly possible at starting prices of $349 and $300 respectively, although they obviously can't escape the HD screen and low-power sacrifices.

Acer's new "headless" Chromebox CX13 will run on an 8th generation "Coffee Lake" Intel Core desktop processor.

The Spin 11 has a hinge, so it's effectively a hybrid, meaning it can be used in laptop, tablet, tent and stand modes, compared to the regular Chromebook 11 which is strictly a laptop.

Acer has yet to release any pricing or availability information for the Acer Chromebox. It also comes with an HDMI and ethernet port as well as a microSD slot. In addition, the Chromebook 11 C732 is compliant with the stringent U.S. MIL-STD 810G military standard, which validates the ruggedness to ensure the durability, reliability and quality of this new device. The IPS display itself, meanwhile, has a resolution of just 1366 x 768.

The Chromebook can be configured with various Intel processors, including a quad-core Intel Pentium N4200, quad-core Celeron N3450, and dual-core Celeron N3350.
