Acer Chromebooks Now Taking Flight in the US

Amazon has the Acer Chromebooks in stock and they are ready to ship within the Unites States. To be clear, we’re referring to the WiFi-only AC700-1099 model that costs $349.

Acer describes the portable, sleek, 2.95 pound / one inch thin notebook as, ‘Ready for On-the-Go Entertainment’: The Acer AC700 is ready for instant fun and entertainment. The Acer AC700’s integrated HD 1.3MP webcam w/ LED indicator is great for video chatting and conferencing, as well as capturing video and photos for sharing online. It supports the latest web standards and Adobe Flash 10.1 video. Everything looks incredibly crisp and clear on the Chromebook’s 11.6-inch HD Widescreen CineCrystalTM LED-backlit LCD. Plus, the Acer AC700’s HDMI output lets customers stream video from the cloud to high-definition TVs and displays.

Not surprisingly, Best Buy hasn’t put the Acer units on sale yet, although the Samsung Series 5 – all four Chromebook models – are available for purchase.

For those who want the Acer AC700-1529 Chromebook 3G, we now have confidence in the mid-August availability and shipping date as noted on Amazon.
