Default New Acer-Google Chromebook, 199$ with x86


Just like the $249 Samsung system, Acer's C7 Chromebook has an 11"x6", 1366x768 screen and is fairly portable. It weighs 3 lbs and measures 1" in thickness. Unlike its Samsung sibling, however, the C7 doesn't couple an ARM-based processor with anemic solid-state storage. Instead, Acer has outfitted the C7 with a dual-core Intel Celeron 847 processor (clocked at 1.1GHz), 2GB of DDR3-1333 RAM, and a 320GB mechanical hard drive—guts almost fit for a cheap ultrabook.
Otherwise, the Acer C7 Chromebook looks rather well outfitted. It's got 802.11n Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB 2.0, and both HDMI and VGA display outputs. Google and Acer tout the "full-size" keyboard and "fully clickable" trackpad, not to mention the fact that the system boots in only 18 seconds. I'd chalk up that quick boot time more to the lightweight Chrome OS than to the mechanical hard drive, but nevertheless, this sounds like a relatively snappy little machine.
Removed the erroneous censorship. Sorry for the trouble. But locking because, as Red Storm said, it's a dupe of http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2282800
