Despite previous reports that pegged LG and HTC as the likeliest candidates for co-branding the 2014 Nexus 7 alongside Google, it appears Asus has a shot at being chosen again as well.
When Acer unveiled its first 2013 Chromebook, the $250 C720-2800, it was hard to imagine things could get any cheaper than that with similar specs. And yet the Taiwanese have just outdone themselves, taking the wraps off the $200 C720-2848.
And just like that, Chromebooks and Chromeboxes have become mainstream. I presume, since Google and Intel have earlier today unveiled four, count’em four new Chrome OS-based computing machines, including two manufactured by newcomers Toshiba and Asus.
