The Official Google Blog France informed us today that the C7 Chromebook manufactured by Acer is now available in France at the price of 249 €. This model, which was distributed at the moment in the United States and Great Britain, is now sold exclusively through the online store Pixmania. shipping costs are free and payment facilities are available.
Reminder Chromebooks are laptops that run Chrome OS, and that emphasize ease of use and speed. In the case of the Acer C7, the speed is achieved by a time of 18sec boot and an output of instant standby. As for simplicity, it is found in the OS developed by Google that does not require more than setting an Android smartphone (Google account and key Wi-Fi). Also this OS does not need antivirus or patch of plants or updated since it does it automatically.
Another important point of the Chromebook is that they operate on the principle of permanent synchronization of all content in the cloud. This way you can access their data wherever it is or on any Chromebook simply by identifying themselves. As for software to use, it will settle Google services or applications and games available in the Chrome Web Store, but for some it is already enough for their use.
