There are no breaking news at the moment


If you are in the market for a new laptop, here is good news: the Acer Chromebook 11 and Chromebook 14 are now up for grabs via the Google Store.

Acer Chromebook 11

The 2016 refreshed version of the Chromebook 11 is powered by a 2.16 GHz Intel Celeron dual-core processor. In addition to featuring a 16 GB SSD, it also houses 2 GB of RAM.

With regard to its display, it rocks an 11.6-inch screen with a 1,366 by 768 pixel resolution. The laptop features nine-hour battery life. This Chromebook, though, is said to be a mid- or low-tier laptop.

Acer Chromebook 14

In contrast, the Acer Chromebook 14 packs better specs under its hood in comparison to the Chromebook 11.



It is crammed with a 1.6 GHz Intel Celeron quad-core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB SSD.

This 14-inch Chromebook touts a 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution. Its larger screen size is a boon to those who are using the laptop for carrying out certain tasks and in streaming movies.

What makes this machine even sweeter is its 12-hour battery life.

In terms of design, the Chromebook 14 seems sleeker and more elegant than the Chromebook 11, rocking an all-aluminum chassis.

Price

You can snag the Acer Chromebook 11 and Chromebook 14 at the Google Store both in the United States and Canada for $179.99 and $299.99, respectively.

Android Apps On Chrome OS

During last month’s Google I/O 2016, the Mountain View-based firm announced that Android apps will soon be heading to Chrome OS through the Google Play Store.

Perhaps this news might entice consumers to buy their own Chromebooks. This also means that the unveiling of the two new Acer Chromebooks is no doubt very timely.

Even though these two devices are equipped with not-so-impressive specs, what makes them worth twice their value is the forthcoming new feature.

It will surely be a welcome treat for Chromebook users to run Android apps directly on their laptops without having to rely on third-party solutions available on the market today.

Now that you know that Android apps will soon arrive on Chromebooks later this year, do you have plans to purchase one of these Acer Chromebooks? Let us know what’s on your mind.
