The device is just 0.71 inches thin and weighs 2.43 pounds.

As part of its CES announcements, HP has announced a pair of new Chromebooks: the Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition and Chromebook 14 G5.

Also, both Chromebook models include the 7th gen Intel Celeron N processors.

Compared to the previous Chromebook 11 series from the house of Acer, the new Chromebook will be more portable and compact. But USB-C has remained rare in entry-level machines like the Chromebook 11. Notably, the Chromebook 11 boasts a fanless design, making it a quiet option for students.

Triple talaq bill likely to be tabled in Rajya Sabha tomorrow
It would be tough for the government in the Upper House to pass the bill in its present form as BJP is in minority here. The government wants the bill to be discussed in the Upper House tomorrow, so that parties opposing it are exposed.

Above the display there's a high-dynamic range (HDR) camera, while the Chromebook 11 also has dual stereo speakers and a microphone.

The HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE is quite similar to the Acer Chromebook 11 in terms of the specifications - It will feature a 11.6-inch screen with 1366x768p resolution with both touch and non-touch version on sale. The Chomebox G2 has a microSD card slot, a single HDMI port, a USB-C port, 3 USB 3.0 ports, and an Ethernet hookup. Customers can stay connected to their network with fast and reliable 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity. Hence, all most all Android apps are supported by this compact form of laptop.

Several models in the Acer Chromebook 11 line (CB311-8HT/CB311-8H) will be available in North America in April with prices starting at $249USD, and in EMEA in March with prices starting at €249. One is a touch display version and other is non-touch display version.

"The new Acer Chromebook 11 continues Acer's tradition of delivering strong performance with all the benefits of Chrome OS at an excellent value". It provides an internal storage of 32GB that can be expanded up to 64GB.
