Physical Overview




A small cardboard box houses the unit. The Chromebook R11 is safely housed inside along with a few accessories.





Accessories include an AC/DC power adapter and some manuals. The AC/DC power adapter can supply 19v at 2.37A for a total of 45W.




The entire unit features a sleek white aesthetic, with Acer and Chrome labeling on the topside. The bottom of the unit features two speakers on either side of the device and 11 screws that can be removed if you want to open the device.




The front of the device features a few status LEDs while the rear features two large hinges. On the right side of the device, there is a power button, headphone jack, USB 2.0 port, and Kensington lock port. On the left side of the device, there is a DC power jack, HDMI port, USB 3.0 port, and an SD card slot.




The screen can be turned 360 degrees, and the unit goes into tablet mode. The hinges used are Acer's patented 360-degrees dual-torque custom design and feel very strong and secure.




The Chromebook R11 has a full QWERTY keyboard. The keys are not backlit. Key size is quite decent, even if you have bigger fingers you won't have issues. The top row of keys are dedicated special function keys, and since this computer doesn't use Windows, you don't need regular function keys. The touchpad is smooth, and since this is a Chrome OS, you don't have a right-click.
