Samsung introduced the latest generation Chromebook just a few days back. This is the ARM-based model, or more than likely — the one people know as the one that is selling for $249. Of course,…
Earlier today the first pictures of the Acer C7 Chromebook leaked to the net. Now it's official, the C7 will be available in United States and United Kingdom starting Nov. 13th. Even more exciting, the new Chromebook will cost just $199.
When Samsung unveiled its latest Chromebook model in October, many were pleasantly surprised by its low $249 price tag, but the Acer C7 manages an even lower price point. It's also worth noting that Acer's Chromebook is powered by an Intel “Core” processor (actually an Intel Celeron 847), unlike the recent ARM-based Samsung Chromebook.
Other specs include a 320GB HDD, 2GB of RAM, HD front cam, an 11.6-inch HD 1366×768 display and a battery capable of around 3.5 hours of life. Acer's Chrome-based laptop is also just 1-inch in thickness. As far as ports are concerned, the C7 has all the usual suspects such as three USB ports, Ethernet, HDMI and VGA. For $199 you not only get the new Acer C7 Chromebook, but you also get 100GB cloud storage for two years and 12 free Gogo Internet passes.
The Acer C7 Chromebook is sold through Best Buy and the Google Play store in the United States. UK buyers can get the new Chromebook through Google Play, Amazon UK, PC World and Currys. So what do you think, interested in picking one of these Chromebooks up?
