Acer 13.3-inch Chromebook 2.1GHz/2GB/16GB: $249 shipped (Reg. $280)

Amazon is offering the 13.3-inch Acer Chromebook 13 for $249 shipped. Launching just over 2 months ago, this is about $50 under the original listing, $31 under the current regular price from Acer and the lowest we’ve seen.

With an original price of $299, Acer’s new option was already providing significant value over Samsung’s latest $400 offering, especially considering it has over 2 hours more battery life and what appears to be much better graphics performance. Samsung’s 13-inch Chromebook 2 goes for $378 on Amazon right now.

The Acer Chromebook 13 CB5 features:

  • NVIDIA Tegra K1 Quad Core 2.1 GHz Processor
  • 2 GB DDR3L SDRAM
  • 16 GB Internal Storage
  • 13.3-Inch Screen, NVIDIA Kepler GPU with 192 NVIDIA CUDA cores
  • Chrome, 13-hour battery life

Early reviewers give it a 4.3/5 star rating on Amazon. You can find more details in our launch post.
