Both will be out in February 2018. The Acer Chromebook 11 will shipping April, the company says, priced from $249.

After Lenovo, HP has announced that it will be showcasing new affordable Chromebooks at CES 2018 next week. Plus, connecting peripherals, charging phones and other devices, and even sharing content on a large display can be done thanks to the Acer Chromebook 11's two USB 3.1 Type C ports. In addition, the new Chromebook 11 looks to offer a competitive audio and social experience due to its inclusion of dual stereo speakers as well as a high-dynamic range (HDR) camera.
The slim and portable form factor makes the Acer Chromebook 11 ideal for use anywhere; it measures only 0.71 inches (18.15mm) thin and weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1kg). Customers simply log into their own Google account to access their Gmail, Google Docs, apps, extensions, bookmarks, and other information. Acer's previous Chromebooks have been some of the most popular laptops in recent sales events like Black Friday and Amazon's Prime Day, invariably selling out more quickly than their Windows 10 counterparts.
After its CES debut, the Chromebook 11 line will be available in stores in March and prices start at $249 for the most basic options. Acer has yet to confirm whether all options and variants will be available in all regions. All batteries' maximum capacity diminishes with time and use.
