Google Inc. has yet announced another computer added to its line of the referred Chromebooks. This new addition is built by Acer at $199 as its sticker price.
According to reports, the new computer is named Acer C7 Chromebook and is available for online purchase on Tuesday at BestBuy.com and Google Play. In addition to this, you will be picking up one personally at selected Best Buy stores within this week.
Features of the C7 include HD camera, three USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out, a VGA port, an an 11.6-inch display with 1,366 by 768 pixel res. The new Chromebook is running on an Intel Core processor that has a storage of 32GB. Acer C7 weighs three pounds and is one inch thick. The battery life of this device is 3.5 hours.
Its battery life is considered as one weakness that could affect the sales of this new computer.
The Chromebook computers of Google are only built on the idea of having just a little to no internal storage. This is to lower down its prices so that consumers can really afford buying it. But despite this fact, the company will give those users who bought Chromebooks a hundred gigabytes of storage in the cloud. This storage can be used for two years max.
Google computers can connect to most known websites like Hulu, Pandora, and Web apps that Google offer such as Google Docs. However, these computers are not capable of installing programs just like Photoshop.
This announcement for the new computer was a bit of a shocking revelation as they have announced the Samsung Chromebook at $249 the previous month.
