Acer is releasing half a dozen new Chromebook SKUs, it announced today during its Next@Acer event. The company is updating its lineup with options for Intel’s latest 11th Gen “Tiger Lake” CPUs, and although the list includes some of the standard cheaper Chromebook options, Acer also introduced some pricier selections boasting fanless designs for quieter operation.

Fanless two-in-one Chromebooks

The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 and Chromebook Spin Enterprise 514 are the highest-end options. They’re more expensive than the average Chromebook (Acer’s current offerings go as low as $190), with the standard version costing $700 when it comes out in January and the business-focused version priced at $900 for a December release.

The upcoming two-in-ones ditch the fans to reduce noise, and that likely helps keep them thin as well. Each machine is 0.68 inches (166.9 mm) thick and weighs 3.02 pounds (1.37 kg).
