Acer’s latest Chromebook touts military-grade durability

Acer has revealed the Chromebook 11 N7 at CES, which is geared for schools and totes a $229.99 price tag.

It features a drop tolerant design, spill-resistant keyboard, and a reinforced case and hinges. Acer claims that it can withstand falls from up to four feet and downward pressure of 132 pounds on its top cover, meeting the U.S.’ MIL-STD-810 military-grade standard.

With 12 hours of battery life, the N7 should last long enough for the average school day. It weighs 2.98 pounds and is 0.87 inches thin, and will receive support for Android apps.

In terms of specs, there’s an Intel Celeron dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. Two different models are available, one with a 11.6-inch touchscreen and another with a non-touch display.

The device will start selling later this month in North America, and next month in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
