CES 2018 wrap-up: More Android TVs than you can shake a remote at

Friday, January 12th, 2018

CES is wrapping up (I left Thursday afternoon), so we figured it would be a good time to sit down and give all of you an easy place to find a bunch of the stuff announced that are related to Android. This post will focus on all of the television sets that will come with Android TV installed. I got see a few of them on the show floor, but they weren't all that exciting from a brief glance standpoint — we've all seen TVs and most of us know what Android TV looks like by now.

Acer Chromebook 11 (2018) hands-on: USB-C and a blue finish keep things fresh

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

The Chromebook product segment continues to gather steam as time goes on. Acer recently announced a 2018 refresh for its Chromebook 11, adding USB-C ports and Android app support (versus mixed support on older models). For our first stop here at CES, we dropped by Acer to take a look at this laptop. Best of all, we got to see the nice-looking blue model, which immediately caught my eye.

The 1366x768 11.6" screen is passable, with muted colors, but stellar viewing angles.

Acer’s new Chromebook 11 has USB-C and Android app support, starts at $249

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

Acer has just announced its new Chromebook 11 (CB311-8H/T). Although this new Chromebook has USB-C support for power and peripherals, as well as an alleged 10-hour battery, its specs are balanced by a low-resolution display and an uncertain Celeron-badged processor. Starting at $249 and available in touch and non-touch versions, this new model doesn't actually go on sale until later this year—April in the US and March for the rest of the world. 

Specs

Screen 11.6" 1366x768, touch and non-touch
CPU Untitled Intel Celeron
Storage 16/32GB
RAM 4GB
Peripherals 2x USB-C 3.1 Gen 1, 2x USB 3.0, MicroSD,
Wireless Bluetooth 4.2, 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi
Camera "HDR"
Audio Dual stereo speakers, mic
Dimensions 0.71" (18.15 mm) thin, 2.43 lbs (1.1 kg)

Acer didn't provide the exact model number for the CPU in the Chromebook 11, but based on the price and fanless design, it's likely to be one of the lower-end versions (read: basically an Atom).

[Deal Alert] Acer’s Chromebook 14 for Work drops to $390 ($210 off)

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Acer has made a name for itself designing and selling good bang-for-your-buck Chromebooks. I came away rather impressed with the Chromebook 15 (2017) not too long ago, despite some shortcuts made to keep the price low. Moving on, though, we're seeing yet another sale on one of Acer's other models; the Chromebook 14 for Work (CP5-471-312N) has dropped to $389.99 on Acer's U.S. store, a savings of $210.

This is $40 less than the last time we saw this laptop go on sale.

Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook, Acer Chromebook 11, and three others receive Android app support

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

It has been a slow journey, but Google has been hard at work giving more Chromebooks access to Android app support. The Play Store arrived on 17 more Chromebooks last month, and now Google has added a few more to the growing list.

First off, the Acer Chromebook 11 (C740) and Dell Chromebook 11 (7310) now have Android app support in the Chrome OS Beta channel. If you have either of those Chromebooks, and you can't wait for the feature to be finished, switching to the Beta channel is pretty easy.

The configuration sold at Best Buy (CB515-1HT-P39B) has 4GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. As mentioned above, the main selling point is the 15.6" 1080p display, since there aren't many Chromebooks with screens larger than 13 inches across.
