Acer Chrome Netbook, ZGB, In The Works
Just a few days before Google kicked off its new Chrome operating system, a screenshot leak appeared on the web of an Acer notebook with the Google OS. We know this because the keyboard displayed a layout that was different from the usual Windows setup and was optimized for Chrome OS. Analysts believed that this was the cancelled Acer ZGA netbook that was mentioned last December.
To add to this situation is that Acer and Samsung announced they’d ship the Chrome OS netbooks when the OS is ready, adding fuel to the fire. According to Acer’s insider, Macles, the new Chrome netbook from Acer is codenamed ZGB and is the successor of the ZGA model.
The netbook will sport a 1366 x 768 display, and have an Intel atom chip. We don’t have any information yet on hard drive space, ports, screen size, or memory, but you can safely assume that the specs will be comparable to the current netbooks out there today on the market. Chrome OS devices are expected to hit the shelves within two to three months, although an official announcement has not yet been given. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see Chrome hit the shelves and I hope it is everything that is hyped up to be.
