Acer’s first “Cloudbook” series laptop is now available for purchase. The Cloudbook family of products are low-cost Windows laptops with the sorts of specs (and price tags) we’ve come to associated with laptops running Google Chrome OS in recent years. But these computer ship with Windows 10 software.
Some models will be priced as low as $170, but right now you can pick up a $190 Acer Aspire One Cloudbook with an 11.6 inch display, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
This model features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N3050 dual-core Braswell processor, and it comes with a free 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal.
The laptop features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, a VGA webcam, an HDMI port, a USB 2.0 port, and a USB 3.0 port. Acer says the 2.5 pounds laptop has a 4,200 mAh battery which should provide up to 8 hours of run time.
Acer also plans to offer a 14 inch model with similar specs soon for $200. And if you don’t plan to install many third-party apps on your laptop or store many files on the eMMC storage, there will be a model with just 16GB of storage available at some point for $170.
