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 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.

Foursquare is one of the most used Android applications on the market, being a location based social-networking website based on software for mobile devices. Recently, the Android application officially received a new update and it brings an interesting feature to it and that feature is Notification tray and at the moment, this new feature is exclusive to Android only. Prior to this new update, Foursquare was granting iPhone users the new update before Android users, but I think now they know that Android is the king.

    “full on Intel, not downgraded to an ARM like the new Samsung model” No thanks. You can keep that crappy atom. I’ll take the 5250 any day of the week.

      It’s not an Atom. It’s a Celeron 874 dual-core CPU with 64 bit and VT-X. Not a bad integrated GPU. I’m wondering if the RAM is socketed. This would make an awesome Linux netbook for $200.
