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. The Acer Chromebook 11 also includes two USB 3.0 ports and Bluetooth 4.2. At CES 2018, Acer is releasing two new versions of the laptop, the Chromebook 11 C311-8H and C311-8HT, a non-touch and touch version respectively.
