Acer is expanding its Chromebook family with a new model featuring an Intel Celeron Bay Trail processor.
The Acer Chromebook 11 showed up in a product brochure in July and now Acer has posted a promotional video for the laptop which describes it as having the “best value,” although the company hasn’t yet unveiled the price.
According to Acer the new Chromebook gets up to 8.5 hours of battery life and features 802.11ac WiFi.
The new 11.6 inch laptop joins Acer’s existing 720 Chromebook series models which feature Celeron 2955U or Core i3 Haswell chips and a $199 starting price and the recently launched Chromebook 13 which features an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, a 13 inch screen, and a starting price of $299.
The new model is expected to be one of the most affordable of the bunch, and according to specs we’d previously seen it will likely feature 2GB to 4GB of RAM, 16GB to 32GB of storage, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, a 36Whr battery, and either an Intel Celeron N2830 or Celeron N2930 processor.
The Acer Chromebook 11 is expected to measure 11.9″ x 8.1″ x 0.86″ and weigh about 3.1 pounds.
