Acer has announced two new laptops with Windows 10 at a very reasonable price. They are called the Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and 14, and are designed to be used as a Chromebook, focusing on cloud storage.
Both the 11 and 14 versions of the Aspire One Cloudbooks series run on Windows 10. They use Intel Celeron processors, with 2 GB RAM and 1366 x 768 LED backlit screens. They also feature 802.11ac wireless, a full size one HDMI port, two USB and one SD card slot.
Systems will be released with a storage disc on 16, 32 or 64 GB, but this in conjunction with 100 GB and 1 TB onedrive cloud storage for one year (subject to agreement). The choice of 1TB storage is for the larger of the two laptops.
Cloudbooks are designed to work in much the same way as Chromebooks - they do not offer large hard drives, and are cloud-based. Chromebooks have the advantage of running Chrome OS on Google's platform, which means they do not use a lot of system resources.
Prices now begin with 169 dollars for the 11 inch model and reach 199 dollars for the 14-inch system. The smallest laptop will be released later this month, while the biggest laptop will be released in September.
