Acer Chromebook R11 convertible now available for 300 Euros
Acer announced its convertible Chromebook plans back in September at IFA 2015. Today, the Taiwanese manufacturer will be making available the Chromebook R11 starting immediately in certain European countries for 300 Euros.
The Chromebook R11 (CB5-132T) will be available in 2 GB or 4 GB RAM options with the latter costing an additional 50 Euros for a total of 350 Euros. Otherwise, both versions will feature Intel dual-core Celeron Braswell cores with integrated HD Graphics. In particular, the 2 GB model will carry the dual-core Celeron N3050 while the 4 GB model will have the quad-core Celeron N3150. Internal eMMC storage is also doubled for the 4 GB SKU from 16 GB to 32 GB.
Thanks to the 360-degree hinge, users can quickly switch between different modes on the Chromebook R11 including Notebook, Tablet, and Tent modes. WLAN 802.11ac, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI, Microphone, line-in/headphones, and an SD reader are all standard. The internal 3-cell battery is rated for a capacity of 3220 mAh.
The manufacturer recently unveiled a handful of new smartphones at this year's Mobile World Congress and refreshed its Windows-based Aspire R13 convertible with Skylake and even RAID 0 options. The Chromebook R11 will compete directly against Lenovo's existing Yoga Chromebook series.
