New Acer Chromebook? (No, Not ARM)

So, before you guys start asking questions, I don’t have much info on this, yet. But this info published on, seems to be really attractive, . Thank youPedram Jabbari, for sending this in!!!

Is Acer going the ARM way like Samsung? No, this new Chromebook seems to be running Intel chipset. The design looks similar to Acer’s previous Chromebook and there are no major design changes.

Looking at the specs list provided by Mini Machines, Acer has put some good hardware power on to this Chromebook. 11.6 ” Screen, 1366 x 768 and an i5 processor.  The blogger has put a link to an Ebay page selling “New Genuine Acer Aspire V5-171 Chromebook AC710 Lcd Led Sreen 11.6″ B116XW03”

I am bit confused after reading the blogpost because the machine translated version of the page was not clear enough. If any one of you can read the article for me and see if I have missed any important info, that’ll be great.

But for now, I will give this a 3.5/10, mostly a rumor.

Now its time to dig in to the Chromium code base and look for some more leads!!! François Beaufort, got any yet? 😀
