Acer debuts a new $299 Chromebook, similar to its $199 model but with upgraded specs

Chromebooks appear to be taking off as of late, with more and more manufacturers debuting new models. Acer is no stranger to the Chromebook and has debuted a new model today that is based upon the model that they released last month for $199. The new model comes with beefier specs and a larger price tag.




The new model comes in at $299, and while not currently available on Google Play, it is showing on Acer's website. The outside looks identical to the $199 model, but the similarities are only skin-deep. On the inside, it features 4GB of RAM, a useful addition if you like to open lots of browser tabs like I do.


It still sports the same 1.1GHz Celeron processor, but comes with a larger battery. Battery life is expected to be over 6 hours on a single charge--not bad. The hard drive has also been upgrade and now sports 500GB of capacity, as opposed to the 320GB included in the cheaper version.
