Acer wants to prove that a Windows 10 PC doesn’t have to be expensive. That’s why it’s releasing the Acer One Cloudbook, a device which can most accurately be described as a Chromebook without Chrome OS. Think of it as a Netbook for the new decade. 


The Cloudbook will be released in 11-inch and 14-inch varieties and both machines will have a 1366 x 768 HD display, an Intel Celeron processor, and 2GB of RAM. They’re also both 17.9mm thick and come loaded with a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365. The differences start to come when we start talking about storage, both cloud based and internal storage. The 11-inch model comes with 16 or 32gb of storage in addition to 100GB+ of OneDrive storage and the 14-inch version has anywhere from 32-65GB of onboard storage with 1TB of OneDrive storage. 

So how about that price point? Just $169 for the 11-inch model and $199 for the 14-inch version. These laptops aren’t going to get you top performance (but you know that) but they certainly aren’t going to break the bank either. Given its specs, its a great value for a fully-featured computer that costs under $200.
