Acer is expanding its presence in the Chromebook market with a new two-in-one hybrid.

The tech company on Tuesday announced the new Acer Chromebook Spin 11, a device that runs on Google’s Chrome OS operating system. You can use it as a traditional notebook computer or as a tablet, thanks to its 11.6-inch touchscreen.

Additionally, the screen works with any third-party stylus that is compatible with Wacom Electro-Magnetic Resonance technology. According to Acer, the feature will make it possible for life-like digital writing.

Acer is among several companies, including Samsung and Asus, that have invested heavily in Chromebooks. The devices are generally cheaper than their Windows-based counterparts, and put using websites as the “apps” front and center. Chromebooks can also work with Android apps, making millions of programs originally designed for smartphones and tablets, accessible.

It connects to the Web via 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
