Just a day after images of it leaked online, Acer has revealed pricing and availability for its new Acer C7 Chromebook. The next-generation Chromebook from Acer will be available starting tomorrow on the Google Play Store, at Best Buy stores, and on BestBuy.com. It will retail for $199.

Acer's new Chromebook weighs 3.05 pounds and measures only an inch thick. It still sports a full-sized chiclet keyboard, though, and it comes with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The C7 runs Chrome OS, Google's browser-based operating system, which is automatically updated to ensure stability and security. It boots in less than 18 seconds, and features near-instant resume from sleep. The new C7 features an Intel Celeron 847 processor with a 2MB L3 cache and a clock speed of 1.1GHz. It also has 2GB of DDR3 memory and a 320GB HDD for file storage. Its three USB 2.0 ports allow it to connect to a range of consumer electronics devices, including camcorders, digital cameras, and smartphones. It also has an HDMI port for pushing video to external displays and HDTVs, as well as a card reader supporting SD cards and MMC. Acer Chromebook customers will also have access to 100GB of free Google Drive storage for the first two years after purchase. The device also comes with 12 free Gogo in-air Internet passes, so that frequent travelers will be able to access the Internet while on domestic US flights.
