Acer presents new super cheap Cloudbooks with Windows 10

Acer has launched a new line of ultra low cost notebooks that are called Acer Aspire One Cloudbooks. The line incorporates two models as of now with a 11.6-inch or 14-inch display and both models cost under USD 200.

The 11.6-inch Acer Aspire One Cloudbook offers a dual-core Intel Celeron N3050 processor at 1.6 GHz (2.16 GHz Turbo), which is based on the Intel Airmont architecture. The device has 2 GB of DDR3L memory, 16 GB of eMMC memory, a 11.6-inch display at 1366 x 768 resolution (TN technology), one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, a SD card slot, a headphone jack, a HDMI port, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. The device measures 201.93 x 292.1 x 17.8 mm (D x W x H) and weighs 1.15 kilograms. The installed battery can last up to 7 hours, Acer says. All this hardware costs USD 169.99 and for USD 20 more, you can get 32 GB of internal memory, which will come in handy, given that the Cloudbook 11 is designed to run Windows 10 Home.

The 14-inch Cloudbook 14 differs little from the 11.6-inch model. It comes with the same processor and the same amount of RAM memory but features 32 GB of internal memory by default and a 14-inch display at 1366 x 768 pixels. The ports and the connectivity options are the same but the dimensions are not and this is quite natural given the larger display – the Cloudbook 14 measures 235.0 x 339.3 x 17.8 mm and weighs 1.59 kilograms. The battery inside the Cloudbook 14 can last for up to 6 hours. This cloudbook sells for USD 199.99 and there will also be a version with 64 GB of internal memory but it will cost more than USD 200 when it appears. Both cloudbooks also come with one year of Office 365 Personal and 1 TB of OneDrive storage.

The 11.6-inch model will be available this month, while the larger 14-inch Cloudbook will arrive in September.
