Acer AC700 Chromebook specs officially confirmed

Acer has confirmed the specs for its upcoming Google Chromebook release with the Chrome OS device set to challenge the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook

Acer has officially unveiled further details on its upcoming Google Chromebook release with the AC700 looking to challenge Samsung’s Series 5 Chromebook device which launched in the UK last week.

Running the newly launched Chrome OS, the Acer Chromebook, formally known as the Acer AC700 is set to host an 11.6-inch CineCrystal HD LCD screen compared to the Samsung unit’s 12.1-inch WXGA offering and come as a Wi-Fi only device with a 3G capable model to launch later in the year.

Like the Samsung Series 5 device, the Acer AC700 Chromebook will land sporting the standard array of an Intel Atom N570 dual-core processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory, and a 16GB SSD alongside a 1.3-megapixel HD webcam, 4-in-1 card reader and a collection of USB and HDMI connectivity options.

Set to launch in the US in the coming days priced $349.99 (£218.71), a UK release day and British pricing for the Acer AC700 Chromebook has yet to be announced.

Stay tuned to the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds for the UK release information of the Acer AC700 Chromebook and whilst you are there let us know if you think the Google Chrome OS will be the future of cloud computing or just a brief stepping stone to something bigger.
