As one of only 3 devices to receive official access to the Google Play Store to date, the Acer Chromebook R11 has proven itself a worthy vessel for Android apps running on a versatile Chrome OS device. Our hands-on time with the Intel Braswell N3050 version proved to be a very welcome preview of what is to come for the new Chrome OS environment.
If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on one of these, now is the time. One of our favorite outlets for Chromebooks is Acer’s official Recertified Store. The amount of devices on hand combined with the fact that you are getting a Chromebook that was reconditioned in the very place it was born gives you a little feeling of security when making a purchase.
Right now Acer is selling the Recertified R11 for the crazy-low price of $175.99. It’s not the top tier model with the N3150 and 32GB storage but it’s not the bottom rung either. This model comes equipped with the Braswell N3060, 4GB ram, 16GB of storage and retails new for $279. That’s over $100 off!
As I mentioned earlier, we tested the N3050 model with 4GB ram and it handled daily tasks and Android apps like a champ. From personal experience I can tell you the difference between the N3050 and N3060 is more than marginal making this a device that will hold its own for the foreseeable future.
Here’s a few highlights of the Acer’s specs:
- Intel Celeron N3060 (1.60 GHz)
- 4 GB Memory 16 GB eMMC
- Intel HD Graphics 400
- 1366 x 768
- 11.6″ IPS Touch Display
- Convertible form-factor
