By Alan Ng - Nov 20, 2014

If you are looking for a new laptop, with the most important thing to you being portability, we think you may be interested in what Acer has to offer. Their 11-inch Chromebook is proving to be a hit this month with consumers and if you are thinking of buying one too, you’ll first need to check out some Acer 11.6-inch Chromebook CB3-111-C8UB reviews beforehand.

This bitesized Chromebook is the closest thing you are going to get to a Mac-like experience and the same kind of great portability that you would see with a MacBook Air.

The Acer 11.6-inch Chromebook specs include Chrome OS as the name suggests, while there is a Intel N2830 Dual-core 2.16 GHz processor under the hood.


2GB of RAM is offered, while graphics inside this little laptop are Intel’s own HD graphics setup. The 11.6-inch display offers a 1366 x 768 LED backlit resolution, plus there is 16GB of storage memory with room to expand via MicroSD should you need it.

Despite the ultra portability with dimensions such as 2.4 lbs and a 0.7-inch thinness, we can see that there’s still a HDMI port on board, with 1 USB 3.0 port and 1 USB 2.0 port.

Like the MacBook Air, it’s important to note that the Acer 11.6-inch Chromebook does not have a CD drive. However, battery life is one of the highlights for us as you should be able to squeeze out an impressive 8.5 hours on a full charge.


Are you looking for this kind of portability, but don’t want to pay the costs involved for a MacBook Air? You will do well to find better than this Moonstone White Acer 11.6″ Chromebook with Intel Celeron, 2GB Memory and 16GB eMMC Flash Memory for the low asking price of $199.
