Although the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 — one of the few Chrome OS-driven tablets unveiled so far — arrived back in March, it took a while for it to finally become widely available. Now, those interested can acquire this 9.7-inch slate with a Rockchip RK3399 processor inside for a starting price of US$330.

The Chrome OS-driven Acer Chromebook Tab 10 arrived back in March targeting the education market, but its looks and set of specs and features made it end up in the "to buy" lists of many regular consumers. Sadly, finding one in stock was a really tough challenge over the last few months, but now it looks like the availability issue has been finally ironed out.

Until a few days ago, the only seller listed by Acer's official website was CDW. The price they offered was US$10 higher than the suggested retail price of US$329. Now, the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 — also known as the Acer Chromeblet or Chrometab — can be acquired from Newegg and Newegg Business for US$329 and US$2.99 shipping, Connection (US$337.48), Insight (US$353.99), and Amazon (US$347.81).

If you missed the Chromebook Tab 10 so far, we should mention the following highlights: a dual-core Rockchip RK3399 processor, a 9.7-inch IPS LCD display with 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, as well as pen input support and a rugged design. At last, it is also worth pointing out that Acer promises a generous autonomy of 9 hours. 

Does the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 look like an attractive tablet for you or your kids? Let us know in the comments.

July 25 Update: Acer reached out and shared with us the following details: "The Chromebook Tab 10 was designed exclusively for K-12 education customers and the vast majority of our volume is being sold into schools via Acer’s commercial sales channel. However, because the product is sold via Acer’s distribution and reseller partners, it may pop up on various online retail sites for sale, as you noted in your coverage.

We wanted to alert you to the fact that even though it is available for purchase online, its intended audience is still K:12 schools that have standardized on Chrome and are looking for an easy-to-use, durable and portable device that can be easily used managed in conjunction with their existing Chrome OS products."

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
