HP Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5 launched ahead of CES 2018

As one of the first Acer models to launch with Android app support, rather than have it added in with an update, the Chromebook 11 could have done with a bit more power: although we didn't get the chance to download any games, there's every chance it may struggle with more demanding apps - especially if you go for the 2GB RAM, 16GB storage model.

HP has come up with its latest range of Chromebook laptops while the CES 2018 tech show is all set to commence in a few days.

Late-Night Hosts Are Campaigning for Trump's 'Most Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards'
Trump has continued to attack mainstream outlets like the "failing" New York Times , even while he gives them interviews. But President Trump isn't one to be overshadowed, so he's getting in on the awards show action himself.

Unfortunately, the Chromebook 11 has a bad resolution for a modern laptop - its 11.6-inch display only has a 1366 x 768 resolution, like its predecessor, the Chromebook 11 C771, which was launched last August and aimed at students. They are all driven by Intel Celeron processors. Meanwhile, its CB311-8H counterpart will use the same LCD panel, but rely on the trackpad for control instead of touch. Both the laptops flaunt a similar design with USB Type-C ports and sport the 7th generation Intel Celeron chipsets. To make up for it, there are ports galore with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two USB 3.1 Type-C ports so you can plug in all the things. Customers can stay connected to their network with fast and reliable 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity. A built-in microphone and stereo speakers are ob board too.

The Acer Chromebook 11 provides access to the Google ecosystem including Google Drive, Gmail, and a variety of useful Chrome apps and extensions.
