This new $170 laptop might be the cheapest way to get your Windows 10 fix

Acer Aspire One Cloudbook Windows 10

Not all the press surrounding Windows 10 has been positive, especially in regards to Microsoft’s tendency to watch everything you’re doing on your new operating system, but the software itself is an accomplishment.

I said as much in my first impressions piece, but if you haven’t had an opportunity to try out Windows 10 yet and you’re just dying to get your hands on it, Acer has a low-cost solution you might want to check out.

On Tuesday, Acer unveiled the Aspire One Cloudbook 11 and Cloudbook 14 laptops, two inexpensive devices that will both run Windows 10 out of the box. According to VentureBeat, both machines come equipped with an Intel Celeron N3050 Dual-Core processor, 2GB of DDR3L system memory and an 1366 x 768 resolution 16:9 LED backlit display.

The Cloudbook 11 is the cheaper of the two, going on sale for $170 later this month. It weighs 2.54 pound, features an 11.6-inch display and will be available as both a 32GB model and a $190 64GB model.

The 32GB model of the Cloudbook 14 is slightly more expensive at $200, but the higher-end device features a 14-inch display. There will also be a 64GB model of the Cloudbook 14, but Acer hasn’t announced a price yet. The Cloudbook 14 will go on sale in September.

If you’re interested in the Chromebook vibe but prefer Windows 10 to Chrome OS, look out for the launch of Acer’s new Cloudbooks in the coming weeks.
