Acer prepares cheap cloud notebook
Not everyone needs a fast, hot and expensive notebook and this is especially true for people who perform just office tasks and keep files in the cloud. For such people Acer is working on a new cloud notebook called Aspire One 11 AO1-132.
The new notebook is very close to being a Chromebook but it runs Windows 10 Home. The device is based on the Intel Braswell platform – it uses an Intel Celeron N3050 processor and has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal eMMC memory. The Aspire One 11 AO1-132 also has an 11.6-inch display that works at 1366 x 768 pixels. There will be a version with a sensor display too. In addition to this the Acer Aspire One 11 AO1-132 will have 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI connector and a SD memory card slot. The notebook will be 17.9 mm thick and will weigh 1.1 kilograms. Despite its small size, the Aspire One 11 AO1-132 will have a battery that can last for up to 10 hours.
The Aspire One 11 AO1-132 will be announced shortly, perhaps at Computex 2016. The expected price of the new notebook is around EUR 250.
