Well it is seen that everyone including Google seems to be more interesting about the Samsung Chromebook and looks like we are ignoring the Acer Chromebooks. For example, the Samsung Series 5 is promoted earlier this month by going on sale at the Gilt Groupe. But, there are reasons why to buy Acer Chroma as well, better screen, the HDMI port for a lesser price, etc. Well we will come up with an elaborate comparison between the two soon.
The pre-order of the Chromebooks are expected to start shipping 15th of this month.
