Acer teases first Chromebook with a Core i3 CPU
Acer had a busy day in New York today, unveiling a number of new notebooks and tablets. The company hasn't stopped there however, as they also teased an upcoming Chromebook, one that should be more powerful than most of the current Chromebooks.
Though the details are sparse, the new Chromebook will be joining the rest of Acer's lineup later this year, and its claim to fame will be an Intel Core i3 processor under the hood. The notebook will also feature the same chassis as the existing C720 Chromebook, but it will be available in 14" and 15" models beginning this summer.
To date, Google's Chromebook Pixel is the only Chrome OS device powered by an Intel Core CPU, a 1.8GHz Core i5 offering. The Pixel also comes with a premium display (2,560 x 1,700) and a premium price tag ($1,299) and it will be interesting to see if Acer can provide a more affordable option.
