And AMD's 11.6-Inch A4 is 2-in-1

Acer has begun selling new Chromebook laptops that can be converted to corporate and educational markets. The Spin 311 Chromebook combines low price tags, robust design, and 10-hour battery life.

Acer's Chromebook Spin 311 R721T comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protected 11.6- Iit multitouch LCD with 1366 × 768 resolution. The 2-in-1 has a slightly thicker bezel, which makes laptops larger. Being a cheap AMD-powered Chromebook, the PC is based on the early-stage APD AM4 A4-9120C, which uses a dual-core Excavator module running at 1.8 GHz and the Radeon R4 integrated GCN 1.2-GPU with 2 CUs operating at 720 MHz. The system has 4 GB or DDR4 RAM and 32 GB or NAND flash storage.

Going forward, the wired and wireless connections available for the Chromebook Spin 311 R721T are unique to today's machines. The list includes Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 4.1, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Port Type-A, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Port Type-C (with DP support), and microSD card reader. In the meantime, the absence of GbE would be a great loss to those who rely on wired networks. In terms of multimedia, the convertible notebook has a webcam, stereo speakers, microphone array, and a 3.5-mm audio jack for headphones.

The Spin 311 Chromebook is made of thick plastic and has a design that can withstand a drop of 122 cm and drainage mechanism that protects internal hardware if up to 342.5 ml of fluid is spilled on a computer. According to Acer, the Spin 311 has been tested to withstand 59% – 88% humidity, temperatures between -32ºC and + 49ºC, and vibrations of up to 7.7 G per axis. The rugged design is worth it though: the laptops are 23.5 mm thick and 1.5 kilograms, which is heavy enough for the 11.6-machine machine
