Acer and Google launch new Chromebook

Looking for a piece of Google awesomeness for under $200? Look no further. Google has announced a new Chromebook with Acer, and the specs – at least some – are pretty surprising.

The main shock here is the fact that, despite the sub-200 price tag, the CPU is a full on Intel, not downgraded to an ARM like the new Samsung model. It would appear, however, that price cuts were possible due to a minimized battery that clocks in at 3.5 usage hours in comparison to the 6.5 on Samsung’s.

We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?

We can also look forward to:

  • 11.6-inch screen
  • 320GB HDD
  • 100GB Google Drive
  • 1-inch thick
  • 3lbs
  • 3x USB
  • HDMI
  • VGA
  • Ethernet
  • Kensington lock slot

The new Chromebook will hit the proverbial shelf tomorrow (11/13) in the Google play store, along with limited availability from Best Buy.
