Acer Debuts $199 Chromebook


Thinking about snagging a cheap laptop this holiday? Acer is launching a Chromebook that takes the price of owning a Google Chrome-powered computer to $199.99.

The Acer C270 Chromebook is almost exactly like the previous model the company unveiled in October, which costs $249.99. The new, cheaper model still packs an Intel Celeron processor for 8.5 hours of battery life, an 11.6-inch screen with 1,366 x 768 resolution and 16GB of storage. The only difference is the $199.99 version has 2GB of RAM instead of 4GB.

There’s no optical drive, of course, but you get an SD card slot on the right side, and the laptop has both a USB 2.0 port and a high-speed USB 3.0 port. You can also connect it up to an external monitor via the HDMI jack. …
