Then there's the Acer Chromebook Spin 11, which takes the same fundamentals but throws in a 360-degree hinge.

Today in London, Acer announced three new Chrome OS devices, including two laptops and a Chromebox.

The two models of the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 can be configured to come with an Intel Pentium quad-core N4200, a quad-core Celeron N3450 or an Intel dual-core Celeron N3350. Some regions will also offer models with integrated 4G LTE. Also, the IP41 rating ensures that the Chromebook 11 C732 is safeguarded from dripping water, so it can be used in a wider range of weather conditions.

Acer has announced a trio of new Chrome OS devices: the Chromebook Spin 11, the Chromebook 11 C732 and the Chromebox CX13 - and they're all capable of running native Android applications, available to download and install from the Play Store. It weighs 1.25kg and measures 296x206x19.95mm and 11.65x8.11x0.78inches. That has up to an 8th generation Intel Core processor, and packs a single USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 port, five USB 3.1 ports and USB 2.0, an HDMI output, gigabit ethernet, and a microSD card reader. It too has two USB 3.1 Type C ports, the option of touch or non-touch on its regular 11.6-inch display, and two USB 3.0 ports. Additionally, there is an optional Wacom EMR stylus allowing users to sketch, write, or interact with programs and apps.

Acer is positioning the Chromebox CXI3 as the ideal computer to hide behind your monitor, indeed. The IPS display itself, meanwhile, has a resolution of just 1366 x 768. On the other side of the device is a microSD card reader, another pair of USB ports and an audio jack.

The Acer Chromebook 11 can be purchased with either an 11.6-inch IPS touch screen display (C732T) or a non-touch IPS or TN display (C732). The new Acer Chromebook 11 C732 line will be available to education and commercial customers in North America in March with prices starting at US$299.99 for touch models and US$279.99 for non- touch models, and in EMEA in April with prices starting at €329. There's an HD webcam, and both WiFi 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2.

Along with the Chromebox CXI3, the Chromebook 11 C732 is aimed at the educational and commercial markets.

Acer is not announcing pricing or availability for this device yet, so stay tuned. The C732T will be available with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage coupled with 8GB RAM.

But apparently, there's still room for two more in the Taiwanese company's extensive Chrome OS laptop portfolio, especially after Microsoft's announcement of new classroom-friendly Windows 10 and Windows 10 S devices. The two models, the CP311-1H and the CP311-1HN, will be priced at $349 (Rs 22,200 approximately) and will go on sale in the U.S. starting March.
