One of the biggest selling points of the Chromebook lineup was supposed to be the dependable battery life, thanks to the light Chrome operating system and hardware. When Acer launched their take on the Chromebook a few weeks back, it was criticized for the fact that it only came with 3-4 hours of advertised battery life. Acer took that criticism to heart and is now releasing an upgraded C7 laptop with better specs. (more…)
Moments ago, Google unveiled their newest partnership with Acer to introduce the all new Acer C7 Chromebook. Having a new Chromebook is awesome, but what’s even more insane is the price tag. Priced at just $199, the device sports a 11.6″ display, capable of up to 3.5 hours of battery life. Sure, you’ll need to bring your charger with you everywhere you go, but that is still pretty great for those who are in the market for an ultra-portable computing device.
The C7 goes on sale starting tomorrow directly on Google Play and at Best Buy.
So, $199 for a Chromebook that stays alive for 3.5 hours. Picking one up?
