Acer unveiled new Cloudbooks starting at $169.99.

Acer announces Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and 14 powered by Windows 10 coming in time for Back To School. The Acer Cloudbooks are the answer to the Google Chromebooks starting at $169.99.

The Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and 14 come with a 1-year subscription of Office 365 Personal1 and up to 1TB OneDrive online storage, making it ready to use out of the box. Acer’s cloud-enabled abApps, including abPhoto, abMusic, abDocs, and abFiles, allow consumers to sync their files and documents with their smartphones or tablets, all securely and privately in their own personal cloud.

Dual digital microphones with enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) that cancel background noise ensure online calls are heard loud and clear, while also allowing a smooth experience for Cortana, Microsoft’s personal digital assistant.

The Aspire One Cloudbook Series packs everything in fan-less design .70 inches (17.9mm) thin; the 11-inch model is 2.54 lbs. (1.15kg) light and the 14-inch weighs in at only 3.5 lbs. (1.6kg).

Sporting a mineral gray cover with a dotted textile pattern that provides good tactile feedback, these notebooks offer full-sized HDMI, USB3.0, USB2.0, and SD Card ports to eliminate the need for additional adapters. A full-sized chiclet keyboard and large touchpad supporting Windows 10 gestures are part of the Cloudbooks.

The Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and 14 features 802.11ac wireless technology, allowing up to three times faster connection speeds, while eMMC configurations up to 64GB provide adequate storage for work and play. The notebooks are powered by the latest Intel Celeron mobile processors and 2GB of DDR3L system memory, and feature a HD (1366x768) 16:9 LED-backlit display.

“The Aspire One Cloudbook series is the perfect answer for those looking for an online-oriented and portable notebook with a full Windows experience,” said Jerry Kao, president of Notebook Business Group, Acer Inc. “With cloud-enabled services such as Microsoft Office 365, OneDrive, and Acer’s Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC), consumers can enjoy the convenience and value the cloud brings with these exciting new products.”

The Aspire One Cloudbook 11 will be available in North America in August with prices starting at $169. The Aspire One Cloudbook 14 will be available in North America in September with prices starting at $199.
