Microsoft used its Worldwide Partner Conference to reveal that Acer will launch a new budget-priced Windows 10 notebook, the Aspire One Cloudbook. The notebook will go on sale sometime in mid-August for the starting price of just $169.
The notebook was revealed as part of Microsoft's second keynote address at WPC 2015 in Orlando, Florida by the company's chief operating officer Kevin Turner. Other than the fact that the Acer Aspire One Cloudbook will be released in 11-inch and 14-inch models, no other details about the notebook were revealed.
Turner used the example of the Acer Aspire One Cloudbook to show that Microsoft's OEM partners can produce cheap Windows 10 notebooks to compete directly against Chromebooks that use Google's Chrome OS, while still offering more features than the typical Chromebook.
