Acer Malaysia has revealed its next generation of devices targeted at business and education segments – headlined by the powerful Veriton series, flanked by TravelMate notebooks and expansive Chromebook line.

Acer Chromebook Spin 11
The Chromebook takes a new spin with the convertible Acer Chromebook Spin 11, featuring Acer’s patented 360-degree dual-torque hinge design. The 11.6-inch HD IPS display (1366×768) offers an optimised touch experience that also supports a Wacom EMR stylus (bundled with the device).
The cool thing about the Chromebook Spin 11 is the “world camera” that’s located above the keyboard. The secondary camera has a 88-degree Wide Field of View (FOV) that’s great for video conferences and Google Hangouts no matter how you spin the device.
Running Chrome OS, the notebook supports Google Play and gives users access to over 2 million Android apps.

Acer Chromebook 11
In education environments, durability and ruggedness is essential. This is where the Chromebook 11 comes in. Boasting MIL-STD 81F for sand and dust intrusion protection, it can tolerate drops from heights of up to 1.22m, thanks to a durable corner-shield structure and rubber bumper surrounding the keyboard.
It has a unique internal honeycomb structure that reinforces the body. It can handle up to 60kg of downforce on the top cover.
Weighing just 1.26kg, the notebook has a 180-degree hinge that enables the 11.6-inch IPS screen display to lay down flat for sharing purposes.
The device includes two USB 3.1 Type-C port and is powered by the Intel Celeron quad-core N3450 chip. It delivers up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge.

Acer’s again first out of the gate with this one. The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is the world’s first education tablet running Chrome OS. Built for classrooms, the Chromebook Tab 10 packs an OP1 processor (dual-core Cortex-A72) coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
It comes with a 9.7-inch QXGA IPS touch display (2048×1536) and has an onboard battery that delivers up to 9 hours of use. The cool thing is that the tablet can be charged using a powerbank via its USB Type-C port.
The tablet comes with a Wacom EMR stylus that’s neatly stored in a silo on the underside of the device. The stylus does not require a battery and is highly durable.
The Chromebook Tab 10 supports AR for immersive learning experiences with Google’s Expedition AR.
It’s available in cobalt blue.
Acer Chromebox CXI3
The Acer Chromebox CXI3 is a deceivingly small box that houses up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i processor and up to 16GB DDR4 RAM. It features a plethora of ports including USB Type-C and HDMI ports.
The compact design enables it to fit neatly into any workplace. The cool thing is that there are three ways it can fit into an environment – laid flat on the tablet, stand or even on a VESA mount.
