Other than Samsung, Google has also partnered with Acer on its Chromebook project. The search giant launches the new Acer C7 Chromebook that runs Chrome OS with Google apps built-in. Unlike Samsung’s new ARM-powered XE303C12 Chromebook, Acer’s C7 uses Intel’s Core series x86 processor. This is the reason why the C7 has a shoter battery life of 3.5 hours.
Acer’s Chromebook has a 11.6-inch 1366×768 display and a front-facing HD webcam for video chat. It supports Ethernet and dual-band WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n and provides three USB 2.0 ports. There are VGA and HDMI video outputs. The C7 packs a 320GB hard drive, and comes with 100GB Google Drive cloud storage for 2 year.
The Acer C7 Chromebook is available for $199.
