"The new Chromebook 11 continues Acer's tradition of delivering strong performance with all the benefits of Chrome OS at an excellent value", said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc.

In terms of difference, the 11.6-inch Chromebook sees the biggest change with a change in position of ports. It will be powered by Intel's Celeron processor. Like all newly released Chromebooks, the Acer CB311 will come with Android Apps out of the box so you can get your Candy Crush on with no delay.

A fanless design on the Intel Celeron CPU ensures that the Chromebook 11 chugs along quietly.
