PCWorld – It was just a few weeks ago that a $249 Chromebook appeared courtesy of Google and Samsung, but on Monday that already-low price point dropped even further.


Google and Acer today announced the brand-new Acer C7, a Chromebook priced at just $199.

Powered by an Intel Celeron 847 processor and equipped with 2GB of DDR3 memory, the new device will be available to U.S. customers starting tomorrow on the Google Play store, at Best Buy stores, and on BestBuy.com.

In the United Kingdom, it’s available on Google Play, Amazon UK, PC World, and Currys; “we’re working hard to bring it to more countries soon,” wrote Sundar Pichai, Google’s senior vice president for Chrome and Apps, in a Monday blog post.

The Acer C7 weighs just slightly over three pounds and measures a mere one inch thick, yet it features a full-size keyboard, a fully clickable trackpad, an “extra bright” 11.6-inch display, and a battery life of more than 3.5 hours.
