Acer's second-generation Chromebook to arrive next month

Acer to release second-generation Chromebook in October

Acer's Cromia Chromebook is looking to go second-generation, with sources telling DigiTimes that we should expect the new Chromebook line to hit next month to combat Microsoft's Surface tablets. Acer's new Chromebooks will start shipping just as the company phases out their line of netbooks.

Acer hopes to ship 200,000 or so of their 11.6-inch Chromebooks per month once they launch, with reports saying that the units are already in production. Acer's Cromia notebook reportedly only shipped 5,000 units in the five months after its launch, which is quite disastrous in the grand scheme of things.

 

We could definitely see Acer trying harder this time around, as the company has not been happy with Windows RT in the past, with Acer CEO J.T. Wang saying last month that the company was "waiting for the signal of the consumers' enthusiasm" with regard to Windows 8.
