The world leader in PC sales has two new Chromebooks to showcase at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, and the education-focused Chrome OS laptops are... nothing special.

The sizes of the screens will be 14-inches for the Chromebook 14 G5 and 11.6-inches for the Chromebook 11 G6. The Chomebox G2 has a microSD card slot, a single HDMI port, a USB-C port, 3 USB 3.0 ports, and an Ethernet hookup.

The Acer Chromebook 11 comes with an 11.6-inch 1366×768 resolution display and is powered by the Intel Celeron processor, just like other Acer Chromebook. Then, Acer is bragging about the impressive 10-hour battery life, which is pretty decent considering the price point. The new Chromebook 11 supports Android apps and the Google Play Store. It's great to see that Acer has given us a USB-C port on each side, so no matter where the outlet is, you can charge from either port.

The new Acer Chromebook 11 device includes two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data quickly and connect to an HD display.


HP Chromebook 14 G5 sports a 14-inch screen and will be released in two resolution options - 1366x768p or 1920x1080p with both touch or non-touch screen variants on sale. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use.

In terms of the RAM and storage, the HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be offered with upto 8GB of RAM and upto 64GB of storage. The other advantage of Chromebooks is that these can run Android apps.

The Acer Chromebook 11 sports a plastic build, and, the company says that it will be available in several models in North America in April with a starting price of $249 (around ₹15,800).

The HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be available in February, but there is no word on the pricing at this point. As Acer looks into the future, it is focused on enabling a world where hardware, software and services will fuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike.
