Touch screen Chromebooks just got super hot with Google’s announcement last week that Android Touch Apps and the Google Play Store were coming to Chromebooks. Get on board with the Acer Chromebook R11 (reviewed here at 9to5Google).

Expansys is offering the Acer 11.6-inch Touchscreen LED Convertible Chromebook (Refurb) for $179.99 shipped with paypal checkout option. That’s $80 off the lowest price we could find for a new one which gets 4.2/5 star reviews from Amazon.

It has a 360-degree hinge that allows you to position the notebook in traditional laptop format, tablet, screening and any point between. It also outperforms many other Chromebooks with its impressive Intel processor that’s based on Braswell micro-architecture,  SuperSpeed USB 3 ports, HDMI out, Aluminum cover, 10 hour battery, 32GB SSD and IPS 720P display and camera.  A 1-year limited warranty applies.

The 360° hinge features dual-torque technology, so the panel is very easy to open, but locks in place when you tap, swipe and pinch on the touchscreen – for wobble-free touch control. The panel senses when you place it upside down for “tent mode”, prompting the image and audio channels to flip over automatically.

Metallic style The Chromebook R 11 sports a premium aluminum top panel that is made even more attractive with a unique engraving-like pattern. Acer uses special nano-imprint technology to create this sophisticated texturing that helps you to grip the notebook firmly – and which looks as good as it feels.
