This is very interesting news if you’re interested in a touch-enabled convertible Chromebook. The Acer C738T has been leaked. It indicates a another step towards a Chrome OS tablet. This is an entry-level 11.6 inch offering but a 4G option makes this particularly interesting for those that want to go mobile with their Chromebooks.
Competing with the ASUS Chromebook Flip C100 with Acer C738T will offer similar entry-level specifications with an 11.6 inch 1366×768 multitouch screen. The Braswell-platform, an Intel Celeron N3150, is said to be inside along with 4GB of RAM and 16 GB of eMMC storage. USB 3.0, USB 2.0, dual-band WiFi and a 720p webcam. 3G/4G is also an option.
A total weight of 1.4 KG doesn’t break any weight barriers but it’s still in the ‘mobile’ class of laptops.
The information comes to us via Winfuture.de who also mention a “Stylish Chromeboook with Nano-Pressed Aluminium Cover.” We’ve checked the source and it’s based on official Acer information.
We expect variants of the specification to appear with 2GB RAM.. We’re hoping for a 32GB storage options and a higher resolution screen model too.
Price and availability are unknown but we get the feeling that this will be July-August back-to-school Chromebook.
