You can open this stylish touchscreen Chromebook all the way, until it becomes a tablet. On the way to 360 degrees of tablet fun, you can also stop to configure it as a stand-up display, or a tent-shaped display that lets you place it on a window sill so you can watch videos on the wide-viewing-angle screen while doing the dishes.
The 360° hinge features dual-torque technology, so the panel is very easy to open, but locks in place when you tap, swipe and pinch on the touchscreen – for wobble-free touch control. The panel senses when you place it upside down for “tent mode”, prompting the image and audio channels to flip over automatically.
The Chromebook R 11 sports a premium aluminum top panel that is made even more attractive with a unique engraving-like pattern. Acer uses special nano-imprint technology to create this sophisticated texturing that helps you to grip the notebook firmly – and which looks as good as it feels.
With the latest MIMO 802.11ac wireless technology under the hood, this Chromebook boasts very fast wireless connection speeds and longer signal ranges. It also outperforms most other Chromebooks with its impressive Intel processor that’s based on Braswell micro-architecture, giving it the power to support another rarity for a Chromebook, a super-fast USB 3.0 port.
At just 19.2mm thin and weighing less than a mere 1.6kg, this stylish notebook floats like a butterfly and slips into your bag with ease. The Chromebook R 11’s built-in webcam supports High Dynamic Range imaging, for clearer photos and brighter video chats.
