Acer updates C7 Chromebook line with SSD's, prices start at just $199

Acer expands the Aspire C7 line with new systems that utilize SSD's

Acer announced today that they are updating their C7 Chromebook line with new models that feature SSD's to improve boot times and responsiveness. Best Buy is one of the first companies selling the new models and has the Acer C710-2833 available for just $199, an impressive price considering it features an SSD.

The specifications for the Acer C710-2833 include an 11.6-inch display and Intel Celeron Processor 847. This 1.1GHz processor is coupled with 2GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, Intel HD graphics, and a 4-cell battery. One important aspect that appears to be missing is USB 3.0

 

With the small (16GB) SSD, storage space will be at a premium and users will likely make use of external drives. It would be ideal for these drives to be able to communicate with the system over USB as it provides much more bandwidth than USB 2.0. Still, I can't complain with a price tag of just $199.
