Acer Chromebook AC710 Images Leak

November 13, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We think it’s meaningless to call a Chromebook as something that can be replaced for the similar priced Windows laptops. Both have an identity of their own. Chromebooks, in fact, are meant to be online machines for fast access of the web and web applications, and that’s the reason why they don’t have the kind of the hardware to fuel offline memory drinking applications, such as Photoshop.

But start your Chromebook machine, and you are there on the internet in probably less than 10 seconds boot up time.  Since Google insists using their cloud service, all Chromebooks (currently Samsung and Acer rule the Chromebook market) come with an SSD with less storage space.

The good and bad reviews are almost equal for the Google Chrome OS devices, but it will be a matter of time for the cheap machines with regular OS update and expanding crowd of third party apps in Chrome web store to ensure more users in the coming days.

Unlike Samsung, Acer wasn’t that much on the game and it had only the AC700 lineup.

Now the folks at minimachines.net have published some leaked images of an Acer Chromebook, called AC710 and it pins some hopes.

The new rig looks somewhat similar to Windows 7 Acer Aspire V5-171 in physical aspects. The first device AC700 was rigged with a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom Dual Core processor with 16GB SDD and was priced at $399.99 for the 3G model. Apparently the rumored machine will be coming with uplifted hardware changes.

Still need to hear official word from Acer, and we will keep you on track if anything comes up.
