Wirelessly connectivity options on the Chromebox CX include, 132×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2.

It is rated for IP41 protection against object and water intrusion, and according to Acer, is compliant with the US MIL-STD-810G military standard for ruggedness and capable of surviving drops from a height of 122cm (48 inches).

Acer has students and educators in its sights with the introduction of two new Chromebook models, including the Chromebook 11 and Chromebook 11 Spin, and a Chromebox mini PC. The Chromebook has dual USB Type-C ports for charging and connecting to peripherals, along with two USB 3.0 ports and a microSD card slot for memory expansion. Acer hasn't revealed pricing for the new Chromebox.

Acer's new "headless" Chromebox CX13 will run on an 8th generation "Coffee Lake" Intel Core desktop processor. The IPS display itself, meanwhile, has a resolution of just 1366 x 768.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 continues in the tradition of the Chromebook R 11, which won many awards for design, performance and strong feature set, and now includes the latest ports, all-day battery life and solid performance in a stylish, convertible design.

The Chromebook 11 C732 is coming to the United States in March.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 follows its predecessors with an inexpensive price starting at $349 (versions with more than the standard 32GB cost a bit more, although the company did not say how much more).

Acer also introduced a new Chromebook Spin 11 hybrid model with a multi-position 360-degree hinge.

Display-wise, the Chromebook 11 is offered in an 11.6-inch IPS touchscreen display (C732T) and a non-touch IPS or TN display (C732).

Will be sold via our retail channels, available in North America starting in March priced starting at $349USD. RAM goes up to 8GB and on-board storage can hit 64GB of eMMC SSD. The Spin 11 launches in the United States in March, with an EMEA launch to follow in April. Alternate Spin 11 models will ship with an optional Wacom stylus and an outward-facing camera. Pricing and availability for the CX13 has yet to be announced. 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2x2 MIMO) is also present on the wireless side of the equation, along with Bluetooth 4.2 LE.

The new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 includes two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data quickly up to 5Gbps, and connect to an HD display to share visuals.
