Earlier this month, Acer introduced the ultra-affordable Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and Cloudbook 14. Both laptops feature a decent set of specifications at an extremely affordable price. Acer is now selling the Cloudbook 11 through its online store for just $189.99 (via WindowsCentral) in the United States.
That’s a really budget-friendly price tag and should give a tough competition to Google’s Chromebooks which are running the cloud-based Chrome OS. Best of all, the machine ships with Windows 10 as its operating system so you can enjoy the new features Microsoft has introduced with the new OS.
In case you can’t recall, Acer announced that Aspire One Cloudbook 11 will start at $169.99, but that was for the version with 16GB of internal storage. If you take a closer look at the product page on the company’s website, they are selling the 32GB version of the laptop for $189.99, so basically you get double the storage for an extra $20.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Aspire One Cloudbook 11 comes with an 11.6-inch display sporting a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels, an Intel Celeron N3050 Braswell processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and ships with Windows 10 Home as its operating system, alongside 1 year of free subscription for Office 365 Personal, which usually costs $69.99.
Other features include 802.11ac dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI, headset, power jacks and ships with a 4,200 mAh battery to make sure you don’t have to worry much about the battery time. The machine is extremely portable as well, weighing around 2.54 pounds and is only 17.9mm thin.
The bigger version of the notebook, that is, Aspire One Cloudbook 14 is expected to go on sale in the region starting next month. There’s no official date available at the moment, but as far as the pricing goes, it will start at $199. We’ll update you as soon as it goes on sale.Further reading: aspire one cloudbook 11, Microsoft, Windows 10
