2 new, rugged HP Chromebooks announced for CES 2018

Acer launches a new Chromebook 11 with USB-C

Add to that the small 11.6-inch display, and it can be packed in your bag easily.

There are two USB Type-C ports as well present in the device. It will be powered by Intel's Celeron processor. Plus, customers won't have to take their power adapter on the go, as the new Acer Chromebook 11 provides up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. HP also unveiled several new deices last night (6), including two Chromebooks and a Chromebox, a desktop computer equipped with Google's online operating system. It's great to see that Acer has given us a USB-C port on each side, so no matter where the outlet is, you can charge from either port.

As the CES 2018 is knocking on the door, HP has come up with an announcement that includes a next-gen Chromebox and two new Chromebooks.

As reported by CNET, the HP Chromebook 14 G5 is aimed for corporate sector while the Chromebook 11 G6 is targeted at students.

Chromebooks are easy to use and ideal for sharing by multiple users. Google's still working on making these apps more Chromebook-friendly, but their simple availability has increased the usefulness of Chromebooks beyond education and basic web browsing. The Acer Chromebook 11 will be available in North America in April with prices starting from US$249 and in the EMEA in March at prices starting from Euro 249.

After already unveiling a pair of Chromebooks, HP isn't quite done with Google's Chrome OS, as the company announced the sequel to 2014's Chromebox, the Chromebox G2. HP Chromebook 14 G5 will go on sale in February as well and the pricing remains a mystery.

Airtel updates Rs 448, Rs 509 plans to go against Jio
All these data packs come with their similar offer of unlimited calls, SMS bundle, and access to Jio's bundle of applications. Vodafone's recharge for Rs 509 comes with unlimited local and STD calls, free SMS, and free subscription of Vodafone Play .

Still, given most people look to Chrome OS for its balance of capabilities and affordability, we suspect more will pick the new Acer than cough up around four times the amount for the Pixelbook.
