Acer has announced the Acer Chromebook R 11, the company's first convertible Chromebook laptop unit.




The Chromebook R 11 features an 11.6-inch (1366x768) display, HD webcam, powered by Intel Celeron processors. The device features a dual-torque hinge design able to support the following modes: laptop, pad, display and tent. It is just 19.2mm thin and weighs less than three pounds, so it'll be easy to transport out and about.


The Acer Chromebook R 11 will launch in North America next month with a $299 MSRP. Global rollout will begin in November.




"By launching the Acer Chromebook R 11, we are providing our customers with a greater choice of Chrome OS notebooks," said Jerry Kao, president of Notebook Business Group at Acer. "We already offer a variety of Chromebooks from 11 to 15 inches. The addition of the convertible series is another illustration of our commitment to our customers and the category."
