Acer Bay Trail Chromebook Hands On Video

acer chromebook cb3It continues to be a busy month for Acer, having finally formally launched their new Intel Core i3-based Chromebooks, and seen word of two upcoming portables ‘leak’ online.

It’s one of these latter devices, the Bay Trail toting ‘CB3’, that this week gained a bit more exposure, courtesy of popular German tech website allround-pc.com. Present at an Acer press event in Germany, their bloggers were able to snatch an exclusive, advance hands-on with the upcoming 11.6-inch notebook.

We shared the entire specifications and its European pricing with you earlier in the week, but nothing beats seeing the device, which is rumoured to be marketed as the “Acer Chromebook 11”, in hand.

It features a dual-core Intel Bay Trail processor running at 2.16GHz, an 11.6-inch screen, 2GB RAM (expandable to 8GB) and a 16GB SSD. It’s accompanied by the usual selection of ports, SD card reader and audio jack.

According to the video the Acer Chromebook 11 (CB3-111) will go on sale in Europe sometime this month.

Is the low price worth the trade off in speed?  That’s for you to decide.
