Acer unveils two refreshed Chromebook lines for schools and everyday laptop users

Acer's Chromebook 11 C732 is aimed at the education market and thus made to take some knocks in the classroom. Due out in March for a starting price of $279, Acer's new Chromebook 11 C732 is created to survive 4-foot drops, spills, bumps and even sand. It comes with what Acer describes as "all-day battery life" and two USB Type-C ports that can be used for charging, transferring files, and plugging in other accessories like a monitor. Asus Chromebook C732 and C732T will be available in the United States from March at starting at $279.99 (Rs 17,823 approx) and $299.99 (Rs 19,095 approx) respectively. There are also plans for a 4G LTE model, but these won't be made available in the United States market, Acer says.

"The Acer Chromebook 11 C732 includes all the durability features of its predecessor and builds on them with an IP41 rating to further protect the school's investment".

There are three variants of the Acer Chromebook Spin 11, in terms of processor. Acer, however, not revealed pricing details for the new desktop yet. It includes a myriad of connectivity options including a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 port, five USB Type-A ports supporting USB 3.1 and USB 2.0 depending on model, one HDMI port, one Gigabit Ethernet port, and a MicroSD card reader. In addition, the Chromebook 11 C732 is compliant with the stringent U.S. MIL-STD 810G military standard, which validates the ruggedness to ensure the durability, reliability and quality of this new device. You have many processor options: Intel Pentium quad-core N4200, Celeron dual-core N3350, or Celeron quad-core N3450 processor.

From service-oriented technologies to the Internet of Things to gaming and virtual reality, Acer's 7,000+ employees are dedicated to the research, design, marketing, sale, and support of products and solutions that break barriers between people and technology.
