The new Acer Chromebook 11 C771 delivers enhanced performance with 6th Generation Intel Core i5, Core i3 and Celeron processors, so students and administrators can enjoy graphics capabilities, better response time and utilize even more tabs and apps. It supports up to 4GB of RAM to boost start-up and responsiveness. Business customers, such as those in healthcare, hospitality, and manufacturing, can utilize the Chromebook 11 C771 as a mobile thin client solution.

The Acer Chromebook 11 C771 delivers extra-long battery life for productivity and fun through the school day into the evening. The C771T models with a touch screen provide up to 12 hours of battery life, while the C771 models can provide up to 13 hours. This makes the line ideal for students in 1:1 programs as well as for organizations with extended classroom and work hours.

The Chromebook is compliant with the stringent Military Standard U.S. MIL-STD 810G and the corner-shield structure and rubber bumpers surrounding the display and keyboard further protect the Chromebook, so it can tolerate drops from heights up to 48 inches (122cm).

The internal honeycomb structure defends the device from up to 132 pounds (60kg) of downward force on the top cover, so it's protected even when students stack text books on top of it or cram it in a backpack. Plus, the Acer Chromebook 11 C771 is protected against spills of up to 11 fluid ounces (330ml) of water with its unique spill-resistant keyboard that routes water away from internal components and out the bottom of the chassis. Also, the keyboard has recessed keys and smaller gaps, so it's less likely that students will remove the key caps.

The Acer C771 Chromebook has an IPS display with touch screen or non-touch options, so schools can meet their curriculum and budget requirements. The 11.6-inch display has a 1366x768 resolution that ensures clear apps and text as well as vivid images. The hinge design securely holds the display in place, yet also opens up to 180 degrees, so it can lay flat for easier sharing during labs and project time.

The Acer Chromebook 11 C771 is slim and portable, measuring only 0.82 inches (21mm) thin and weighs only 2.98 pounds (1.35kg).

The Chromebook 11 C771 has a USB 3.1 Type C for fast data transfers as well as two USB 3.0 ports and one HDMI port. Students can plug in headphones with the 3.5mm combo audio port. Files can be transferred with the device's built-in microSD card reader. Also, students and business customers can stay connected with fast dual-band 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac/a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. The HDR webcam delivers an easy and fun way to connect with HD 1280x720 resolution and 720p audio/video recording. The Chromebook also includes HD audio support, dual built-in stereo speakers and a microphone.

The Acer Chromebook 11 C771 supports multiple user sign on to keep data safe. Students and employees simply log onto their unique accounts to ensure their project, Gmail and other information is kept safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen. Storage on Google Drive protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version is always available. Students can also access files offline, and even open and edit Microsoft Office documents as well as Google Documents.

The Acer Chromebook 11 C771 is easy to deploy and manage. IT administrators will find it easy to make updates, configure apps, utilize extensions and policies and more with the web-based management.[6] Students will stay protected since Chrome OS is automatically updated and guards against ever-changing online threats, such as viruses and malware.
