The bounty of Chromebooks is growing every year as more brands introduce more versatile and budget-friendly offerings. The Acer Spin 311 model is one such model designed for basic computing tasks for college students.
What sets this Chromebook model apart is its easy-to-click keyboard that makes your typing experience a breeze. The fact that the screen flips all the way (whether used as a tablet, laptop, tent, or display mode) is another factor that enhances its versatility.
With only 4GB of RAM, this ChromeBook can only handle basic computing tasks like word processing, web browsing, audio and video streaming. The good news is that it comes with a Chrome OS pre-installed, meaning it doesn’t need as much storage space as Windows laptops.
The Chromebook has a relatively decent selection of ports: two USB Type-C ports for video streaming, data transfer, and battery charging; a reversible USB 3.1 Type-C connector on both sides, a MicroSD slot and two USB 3.0 Type-A ports.
This Chromebook provides eight hours of battery life, so students with longer class sessions may need to carry a charger.
The Acer Spin 311 is a solid buy for students looking for a Chromebook laptop
