One of the biggest low points of just about every “affordable” laptop is the display. It’s usually low-resolution with poor viewing angles and disappointing colors. Some have fixed this issue, but now Acer has decided to make a change for the better. With their 2016 refresh to their popular Acer Chromebook 11, Acer has replaced the older TFT display with an all new IPS panel.
The resolution still lands at 1366×768, which is a tad low for many users, but the massive improvements in viewing angles, brightness, and colors should more than make up for it.
The new Acer Chromebook 11 also gets an update in terms of durability with a new nano-imprinted aluminum cover on the outside of the machine and also a strong internal chassis. This laptop still boasts a fanless design with the Intel Bay Trail Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Acer did also note that a variant with 4GB of RAM would be available at a later date.
If you’re looking to pick up this new model, it’s available right now from Amazon for just $179!
