Acer working on a new Tegra-powered Chromebook


It sounds as if Acer is working on a new breed of Chromebook. We’ve heard some rumours of Tegra-powered Chromebooks for a little while, but Acer might actually bring the first one to market in August 2014. According to the perhaps accidental product listing on‘s site, the Acer Chromebook CB5 features the Tegra K1 chipset, 4GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD, alongside a big, beautiful 13.3″ HD display.

From the imagery, it looks as if there’s two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port, 3.5mm headphone jack and a pretty spiffy exterior. No other details are really known, but take a look, and see what you think.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.
