Chromebooks laptops are both light weight physically and technically. They are powered by Google’s Chrome OS which provides long battery life and ease of use. One thing they didn’t offer until recently was access to the Google Play store and the ability to run Android apps. The Acer Chromebook R 11 is one of a select few that can do this. The R 11 features an 11.6″ touchscreen display with a 360° hinge that converts the clamshell laptop into a tablet for $299.99.
So what do you think? Does the ability to run Android apps on Chromebooks like the Acer R 11 make them an attractive computing platform, or does the price make you want to just buy an inexpensive Windows laptop and call it a day?
