Acer Chromebook 511 — Learning Without Borders

The Acer Chromebook 511 (C741L) is an 11.6-inch notebook computer that simplifies the process of establishing a digital learning environment, with a number of features that will benefit both the students using the devices and the school administrators rolling them out. The Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 7c compute platform allows for up to 20 hours[3] of battery life between charges on top of offering an efficient performance to keep up with students’ learning needs. Utilizing Snapdragon 7c, the Acer Chromebook 511 also delivers built-in 4G LTE connectivity to help protect the security of users’ data and to provide fast, reliable access to learning apps in the cloud — enabling students to take the classroom with them and learn from virtually anywhere. Weighing in at just 1.3kg (2.87 lbs), this thin and light device is portable enough for students of all ages to easily transport between classes.

Acer Chromebook 311 — Built to Survive the School Day

Made especially for K-12 students and those supervising them, the Acer Chromebook 311 (C722) is a reliable device with a MediaTek MT8183 processor designed around a number of industrial durability and safety standards. Compliant with the MIL-STD 810H[1, 2] standard, the device can survive falls of up to 122 cm (48.03 in) and 60 kg (132.28 lbs) of downward force, feats accomplished with shock-absorbent bumpers and an enhanced interior design. Special attention was paid to the Chromebook’s keyboard, a uniquely vulnerable area that receives significant wear and tear. It is capable of withstanding up to 330 ml (11.6 fl oz) of water, and its keys have been mechanically anchored with two wings that extend out under the chassis, protecting them from removal by restless hands and sticky fingers.

Striving to create a device that not only was capable of surviving the mishaps of a typical school day but was also suitable for more vulnerable young learners, Acer built the Acer Chromebook 311 (and Acer Chromebook 511) in compliance with a pair of leading toy safety standards. Plastic coatings on the computer have been strictly tested and certified under the ASTM F963- 165 Toy Safety Standard and the device also meets the UL/IEC 60950-16 standard, covering everything from chemical and material safety to sharp edges to ensure that the Acer Chromebook 311 is safe and suitable for use by younger children.
