Are you still stoked over the recent release of the Windows 10 operating system? I am quite sure that you, among millions others, are pleased as punch that the Windows 10 operating system is rather stable in its own right, and there are not too many niggles to work out in the first place. Well, having said that, hardware manufacturers have already churned out accessories for the new operating system such as Satechi’s BT Cortana button, but this time around, we will concentrate on notebooks that hail from Taiwanese manufacturer Acer which will boast of Microsoft’s latest. The Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and 14 will obviously come with Windows 10 right out of the box, and these will also boast of 802.11ac wireless technology and the latest Intel mobile processors in order to deliver the maximum amount of value in your computing life.
Not only that, each purchase of either Cloudbook will also feature Office 365 Personal and OneDrive online storage subscription – in other words, these notebooks will be ready to use right out of the box. There will also be dual digital microphones with enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) to make sure that online calls are heard loud and crystal clear, and at the same time, also pave the way for a smooth experience for Cortana with voice.
Acer has their very own Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC) applications that enable secure and private synchronization across devices, so this is another aspect in which you do not have to worry about. Both of these highly portable notebooks will sport Acer’s cloud-enabled abApps, including abPhoto, abMusic, abDocs, and abFiles, enabling consumers to easily sync their files and documents with their smartphones or tablets, all done in a secure and private manner within their own personal cloud.
The fanless design on both models come in a chassis that measures just 17.9mm thin, with the 11″ model tipping the scales at a mere 2.54 lbs., while the 14″ model will weighs in at only 3.5 lbs. Eiither way, the mineral gray cover with a dotted textile pattern provides good tactile feedback, and these notebooks will also boast of full-sized HDMI, USB3.0, USB2.0, and SD card ports in order to do away with the need for additional adapters. There is also a full-sized chiclet keyboard and large touchpad that supports Windows 10 gestures to deliver a comfortable typing and navigation experience.
Expect the Aspire One Cloudbook 11 to hit the US this month with a starting price point of $169 a pop, while the Aspire One Cloudbook 14 will arrive one month later at $199.
