This Intel Celeron-powered is the company's first Chromebook to feature a 360-degree rotating hinge.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
