Acer America Expands Sales of Popular C7 Chromebook
Acer America today announced that its new Acer C7 Chromebook is available now through additional online retail partners: TigerDirect, NewEgg and Staples.com, in addition to the existing Google Play, BestBuy.com and Best Buy stores.
The Acer C7 Chromebook mobile computer debuted earlier this month and has quickly gained popularity for providing customers an easy-to-use, speedy and secure computing experience at an affordable price of only $199 MSRP.
“Our customers' enthusiastic response to the Acer C7 Chromebook has encouraged more of our e-tail partners to make them available for purchase online — just in time for anyone looking for a great holiday gift for a loved one or yourself,” said Scott Ledterman, vice president of retail, Acer America. “The extra low price of only $199 is so affordable that customers can even buy them as stocking stuffers for multiple people on their shopping list.”
The Acer C7 mobile computer is designed for families, students and other computer users who spend much of their computing time online, such as shopping, paying bills and keeping up via email and social networks. The notebook's built-in security features are automatically updated to defend it against malware and viruses.
The new Chromebook runs Google's Chrome operating system, which is easy-to-use and navigate, giving customers access to thousands of apps and games in the Chrome Web Store. The Acer C7 boots quickly and resumes nearly instantly from sleep mode. It comes with integrated 802.11b/g/n WiFi, so customers can quickly connect to hotspots and wireless networks.
The Acer C7 is portable and sleek for today's on-the-go mobile lifestyle. It weighs only 3.05 pounds and measures a mere one inch thin, so it can be easily taken anywhere as it fits into a backpack, briefcase or purse. The slim size still houses a vibrant 11.6-inch display and a full-sized keyboard. Plus, Acer Chromebook customers are offered up to 100GB of free Google Drive storage for the first two years after purchase, so files, documents, photos and more are stored safely in the cloud even if the Acer C7 is lost, damaged or stolen.
Pricing, Availability and Warranty
The Acer C710 is available now for purchase at TigerDirect, NewEgg and Staples.com in the United States for $199.00.
The new Acer C7 comes with a standard one-year parts and labor warranty, which can be extended to three years with the Acer Advantage service. All Acer Chromebooks are backed by toll-free service and support.
