However, ahead of CES 2018, HP is launching a brand new Chromebox with updated specs, ports, and more.

The Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 is equipped with dual USB 3.0 ports including dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports.

The Chromebook 11 is outfitted with an 11.6-inch display that features a surprisingly low 1366×768 resolution, as well as options for touch and non-touch displays. It will be powered by Intel's Celeron processor. The Acer Chromebook 11 also comes with support for Android apps, which opens up the notebook to the plethora of games, productivity, and multimedia apps in the Play Store. Dubbed as Chromebook 11 CB311, the new laptop ships with USB-C port with the ability to deliver up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge of 100 percent. It comes in two models CB311-8H and CB311-8HT. The design also comes without fans, which should keep things nice and quiet.

Chromebooks have seemingly hit their stride this past year thanks to new hardware and the arrival of Android apps, but other Chrome OS form factors have seemingly gone silent. An included microSD card slot can be used as extra storage space or transfer files and content.

Internal storage options are limited - you can only pick between 32 GB and 64 GB of storage - though both options arrive in speedy M.2 SSDs. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use.

HP has not revealed pricing for either device, but that may be available next week at CES 2018 where the devices will be on display.

Availability wise, Acer has said that the Chromebook will appear in the European, Middle Eastern, and African markets in March where the base model will start at €249, before launching in the United States in April for US$249.

We haven't any details yet on what, if any other colors will be available but we'll be catching up with our friends at Acer in Las Vegas this week and we will let you know more details as they unfold.

The new HP Chromebook will be released in April, with a price yet to be disclosed.
