It's a laplet! It's a tabtop!
Confession: We lied: The sleek, incredibly thin Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is actually more than just a laptop. It has a brilliant 11.6-inch HD touchscreen display (at 1366x768 resolution) and flexible 360-degree hinge (hence the name 'Spin'), so it can rotate to any angle for use as a tablet.

In fact, this Chromebook can access and download ChromeOS, Linux and Android apps for more versatility.

"It's taking some getting used to, but I'm loving it so far! Battery life is as expected, I left it on overnight and I still had a full battery the next morning. Touchscreen is responsive..."
