While Acer has a new 2-in-1 notebook, that’s not it. Acer’s two new Chrome OS devices are coming soon and they offer some decent perks. First off, Acer has a Chromebase all-in-one desktop.
The Chromebase 24, is, from what Acer has said, the first with an Intel Core processor. It features a 23.8-inch display with IPS technology. It offers up to 8 GB of DDR3L RAM and 802.11ac wireless and Gigabit Ethernet connections.
Another perk is that it’s optimized for video-conferencing. It does this by incorporating four digital microphones that boast noise canceling. As of right now, we’re not sure what the price is, though it should be available in the United States when to does become available.
But that’s not the only Chrome OS device Acer is announcing — we’re also seeing a Chromebook from the company. The new Chromebook 11 refreshes the line with the new CB3-131 model. It boasts a new, more durable design that comes with a premium nano-imprinted cover. It also offers solid performance.
In the 2.42-pound notebook, you’ll get a 1,366×768 display. It features an HDR camera for video chats and comes with stereo speakers and an integrated microphone for top-notch audio and video capabilities. It offers all day (9-hour) battery life with a quad-core processor, 2-4GB of RAM and 16-32GB of eMMC storage.
We do have a price for the Chromebook 11 refresh. It’ll come at $179.99USD and will be available starting in February. The new Chromebook is geared toward commercial and educational customers who work in extra-stressful environments, but if you’re in the market for a laptop with all day performance that can also take a beating, the new CB3-131 might be right up your alley.
That’s about it for Acer’s two new Chrome OS devices. We’ll let you know when the Chromebase 24 is available and for how much, but like we said before, Acer isn’t telling. Here’s hoping we know sooner rather than later. Also, be sure to check out Techaeris throughout the week for all your CES 2016 news.
