The Acer One 10 is a 10.1-inch 2-in-1 Windows laptop for $200

Acer has just launched, with little fanfare, a very affordable Windows 8.1 2-in-1 laptop, the Acer One 10, on the eve of the Windows 10 launch. The 10.1-inch laptop, which has a detacble keyboard, is now on sale for $199.99.

As you might expect, the hardware specs for this laptop are not high-end. It has 2GB of RAM and just 32GB of onboard storage. Inside there's an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor running at 1.33 GHz, and the touchscreen display has a resolution of 1280x800. There are also 2MP camers in both the front and back.

Naturally, the Acer One 10 can be upgraded for free to Windows 10 when that OS becomes available to the general public a week from now on July 29. Acer has an even cheaper Windows 10 laptop in the works, the Acer One Cloudbook, that will be released in August for the starting price of $169.
