Chromebooks have been growing rapidly due to one major factor, their price point. While Chrome OS itself is great, it’s very easy to see that most customers buy Chromebooks simply because they’re dirt cheap. But what if those Chromebooks didn’t run Chrome OS? What if they had the same price, same specs, and same hardware, but came with Windows 10 installed? Well, Acer aims to answer that question with their new lineup of Windows 10 Cloudbooks.
Acer has introduced two new Cloudbooks in 14″ and 11″ sizes. Both come with Intel Celeron processors inside as well as 2GB of RAM and a 1366×768 display. Storage ranges from 16GB to 32GB on the 11″ variant and 32GB or 64GB in the 14″ variant. A 1-year Office 365 subscription in included with both along with up to 1TB of OneDrive storage depending on the model. While these models are limited by the storage, they do both offer the full Windows 10 experience including all the programs you can fit.
Starting at just $169, these Cloudbooks should make an impact in the Windows marketplace and give certain Chromebook models a run for their money, literally. The 11″ variant will be available this month starting at $169 with the 14″ variant available starting in September for $199. Will you be picking one up?
