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.

  1. “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.
