If that sounds familiar, it's probably because Acer and Google launched essentially the same thing a year ago for the education market.

Acer may already be the champion of Chromebook diversity, selling more models through both consumer and education channels than we're willing to count right now, and unveiling another 11-inch version at CES earlier this month ahead of United States commercial availability in April.

Beyond the ruggedness, the Chromebook 11 features a fanless design three display options-11.6-inch IPS with touch support, 11.6-inch without touch support, and 11.6-inch TN without touch support-and either an Intel Celeron N3350 or N3450 processor.

The new Acer Chromebook Spin 11's 360° convertible design ensures users can enjoy an optimized touch experience on the 11.6-inch HD IPS display with 1366x768 resolution.

This line will also offer optional 4G LTE provides connectivity on-the-go - but we are not announcing any configurations with LTE for N. America at this time.

The Acer Chromebox CXI3 comes equipped with an Apollo Lake 8th generation Intel processor.

Turkey urged to show restraint against Kurds
South of Raqaa, ISIS still controls enclaves and is using the area to try to regroup, the official said. Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Tuesday reaffirmed Turkey's continuous support to those in need.

Spec-wise the latest 11-series Chromebook is similar to the Spin 11, although it has been designed with an IP41 durability rating so it can take a few bumps and bruises from younger users. From the early days of Google's desktop OS, Acer has produced quality computers running the Linux-based Chrome OS. As Acer looks into the future, it is focused on enabling a world where hardware, software and services will fuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike. Other specs include a 180-degree hinge with both touch and non-touch 1366×768 displays. It also features two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C ports which offer data transfer, power delivery, and display output, and two USB 3.0 Type-A ports.

A laptop/tablet hybrid with flexible joints, Spin 11 is one of the several devices that can run Android applications. Exact pricing will vary by market, says Acer.

Chromebook Spin has a 360-degree rear hinge, which allows you to position it according to your needs. Price starts at $349.

The Spin will cost $399 CAD and will also be available in March.

Available with either quad-core Pentium or Celeron processors, the Spin 11 incorporates either a 32GB or 64GB onboard eMMC storage, and 4GB or 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Many Chromebook customers store their files on Google Drive (3) which protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version of the file or document is always available and safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen.
