IFA 2015 | Acer unveils Chromebook R 11 convertible
Acer announced earlier today the Chromebook R 11, the company's first Chrome OS-powered portable that features a 360-degree rotating hinge similar to the one that made the Lenovo Yoga famous. Feature-wise, the R 11 does not come with any surprises but has all it takes to get the job done considering its position on the market.
Acer Chromebook R 11 features a low-end Intel Celeron processor and 4 GB of memory, as well as 32 GB of internal storage. Its 11.6-inch LED backlit 10-point multitouch has a resolution of only 1,366X768 pixels, but the R 11 has a premium aluminum top cover "imprinted for a uniquely textured metallic finish using Acer nano-imprint technology." The connectivity options include 2X2 MIMO WiFi 802.11 ac and a fast USB 3.0 port.
According to the official press release that you can check below, the Acer Chromebook R 11 will hit the North American market next month starting at $299 USD. Details about available configurations should come out prior to release.
