Powered by a dual-core Intel Atom processor, the AC700 boots up to Chrome in less than 10 seconds, and resumes almost instantly. It features an 11.6-inch HD Widescreen CineCrystalTM LED-backlit LCD, and a HDMI output to watch content on high-definition televisions and other displays.
The Intel Atom N570 dual-core processor and 2GB of DDR3 memory provide the performance to speed through the web, access files, enjoy video and more. It has a 16GB SSD for storage, has two USB 2.0 ports and a 4-in-1 card reader that accepts popular flash storage.
Acer InviLink Nplify 802.11b/g/n Wifi Certified will keep customers connected to the Internet. To support this always-on connection, the Acer AC700 provides excellent battery life of up to six hours with its 6-cell battery.
The Acer AC700 Chromebook is available this month in the United States at Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices starting at $349.99. A model with 3G broadband wireless capabilities will be coming this summer.
Chromebook is ideal for no one at that price, honestly. I don't see the market. Why not get a laptop or netbook with Windows 7 on it for about the same price that can do what the chromebook can do and more. Might be cool for organizations to buy in bulk, but I really don't see the appeal for normal consumers.
