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.
