It’s no secret that we’ll soon see Chrome netbooks coming to the market but up until now we only had speculation relating to what these Google Chrome OS powered netbooks would be powered by. Now, thanks to a bug report found by Macles, we have a better idea what the Acer Chrome netbook will be running inside.
These aren’t official specs, but it appears that there is a Google Chrome OS powered Acer with the following hardware.
- Intel Atom N455 1.6GHz
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB pSSD
- Ambient light sensor
- Bluetooth and WiFi
According to Macles it is likely that these production testing specs may be upgraded before the product is released to run the newer dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor and come with double the storage space. Based on further comments Macles suspects that the Acer Chrome netbook will hit stores in mid-October and coincide with a public beta of Chrome OS.
