Called HP Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5, the new models are said to cater to the education and enterprise markets.

Furthermore, the Acer Chromebook 11 is 18.15 mm thin and weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1 kg) which makes it lightweight and portable enough to carry around easily. The base model lands with a Celeron 3865U, and there are upgrades available with the Intel Core i5-7300U, and the brand new Intel Core i7 8650U. It is a budget-friendly Chromebook and comes with USB Type-C charging. The company has promised more durability in the Chromebook 14 G5 and Chromebook 11 G6. "The model numbers for these new devices are CB311-8HT and CB311-8H and they both offer up an 11.6" display.

Either way, you get two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, either of which can be used to charge the Chromebook, or to connect data devices or an external display.

The Chromebook 11 is outfitted with an 11.6-inch display that features a surprisingly low 1366×768 resolution, as well as options for touch and non-touch displays.

The Chromebooks come with an HDR camera and there are dual-stereo speakers included as well with an integrated microphone.

Chromebooks have seemingly hit their stride this past year thanks to new hardware and the arrival of Android apps, but other Chrome OS form factors have seemingly gone silent. It also has a microSD card reader. Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO are also onboard as standard. 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.

Alongside that processing power, the Chromebox G2 packs up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and either a 32GB or 64GB SSD for storage.
