Acer 11.6” Chromebook with Intel Celeron N3060 CPU, 4GB RAM, and 32GB Storage (Refurbished, Grade-A)
Designed to help you take care of work no matter where you are, the slim, lightweight Chromebook R11 packs an HD touchscreen, fast dual-core processor, and the web-based Chrome OS into a portable frame. The laptop uses more than just processing power to help you multitask, however—its 360° hinge transforms the R11 into a tablet, so you can work more efficiently on-the-go.
Cloud-Based Chrome OS
This Chromebook can forego the components that make most laptops bulky and heavy, thanks to its web-based Chrome OS. Rather than store applications and files on a built-in hard drive, Chrome syncs with your pre-existing Google account to store everything, from documents and spreadsheets to MP3 files and video, entirely online. This system not only saves space on your computer; it makes your files accessible from anywhere you can log into your Google account, such as your smartphone.
Touchscreen Display: Tablet-Like Control
Zoom in on photos, jump to the next story on news apps, or play a mobile game on a bigger screen—all without using the keyboard or touchpad. A touchscreen display expands your control, giving you more ways to interact with apps and programs that support touch gestures. For more traditional tasks, such as answering emails, you can move back to the keyboard at any time.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.

Acer is a classic success story: it began as a husband-and-wife team with a handful of employees and grew into one of the bestselling names in laptop computers. In 2007, after acquiring both Gateway and Packard Bell, Acer was the No. 2 bestselling brand in the world for notebooks. But like many companies with humble roots, Acer has remained committed to its values, winning dozens of awards for sustainability and product design. Those two values meet in products such as recyclable notebook computers and the V6 series monitors, which were made with post-consumer recycled material. And the public notices: at the close of 2014, Acer landed a top spot on Amazon’s holiday bestseller list with its Chromebook, and the Aspire V laptop won a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice Award, promising much of what the brand is known for: “an entry-level gaming laptop with some real muscle, showing impressive performance and solid battery life without the expense of a premium system.”
