Acer’s Launching $299 Touchscreen Chromebook Next Month

/ 4 years ago


Chromebooks are a great alternative to your typical Windows or Mac OS powered notebooks, bridging the gap between Android based systems with online services and cloud based apps that allow manufacturers to keep functionality high and costs low.

Acer are now looking to set the bar higher with the release of their first touch screen Chromebook and the best part is that it will only cost $299. For that money you’ll get yourself an 11.6 inch HD LED display that features a 1366 x 768 resolution, Intel Celeron 2955U processors, a 32GB SSD and 2GB of DDR3 RAM. The Chromebook is a breezy 2.98 pounds and measures in at 0.78 inch thick.

Acer claim the device will offer up to 7.5 hours of battery life, and will still offer common luxuries such as USB 3.0, HDMI out, SD card clot and a 10GB of Google Drive space.

With this kind of functionality and such a stunning price, we suspect this is going to be a popular choice when it goes on sale early next month.

    I don’t understand, why decrease the memory capacity from 4GB to 2GB?
