Android is a versatile operating system. We’ve seen smartphones and tablets running on Google’s operating system — even desktops. Recently, Archos has announced a new laptop dubbed as Arcbook and it runs Android Jelly Bean as its operating system out of the box.
“ARCHOS ArcBook combines a consumer-friendly tablet experience with the productivity of a netbook” says Loïc Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS. “The ARCHOS ArcBook furthers our commitment to providing feature-rich, consumer-friendly technology at an affordable price.”
Archos Arcbook comes with a 10.1-inch display sporting a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, with Android Jelly Bean as its operating system. The netbook is powered by RK3168 Dual-Core ARM Cortex A9 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM and 8GB flash storage, as well as a microSD card slot for expandable storage. It measures 271.5 mm x 180.5 mm x 22 mm and weighs only 1.28kg. The manufacturer also included two USB 2.0 ports for external devices.
It also features a front-facing camera, two microUSB ports, single-touch mouse pad, 3.5mm audio jack, and comes with a massive 8,000 mAh battery to make sure you never run out of juice at important times. The device is priced at £139.99/$169.99, and comes pre-installed with Office Suite Pro 6 to help you work with documents on the device.
Arcbook doesn’t have a lot to offer, but it should be enough considering its low price tag. However, if you’re really in the market looking for a budget laptop for yourself, you may want to take a look at the Chromebooks as well. They may cost you a few extra bucks, but they offer way more features than an Android laptop. Visit the source link below to know more about the product
