Just over a month since it introduced the new Samsung Chromebook, Google is expanding its lineup again with the Acer C7 Chromebook. Like Samsung's latest effort, the Acer C7 Chromebook includes an 11.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution. It's powered by an unspecified Intel Core processor and comes with the expected array of features, like a built-in HD camera, dual-band Wi-Fi, and HDMI output. Where it differs largely from its Samsung sibling, however, is storage and battery life. While the Samsung Chromebook offers 16GB of SSD storage and 6.5 hours of battery, the Acer C7 incorporates a massive 320GB hard disk drive and has an estimated usage time of 3.5 hours. Google will offer all new Chromebook owners 100GB of free Google Drive storage for two years. The Acer C7 Chromebook will be available tomorrow, November 13, for $199 on Google Play and various electronics retailers in the US and UK.
