Acer to launch Chromebook CB5 with Tegra K1 at core

Acer Chromebook CB5Acer is getting ready to release a new Chromebook in the coming months. Spotted in a product listing on a Swedish e-retailer (changed to a placeholder now), the upcoming Acer Chromebook CB5 will be powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 processor.

When released, CB5 will be the first Chromebook from Acer to pack an ARM-based chip. Among other specifications, the Chromebook will come with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of SSD, and a 13.3-inch HD display.  Among other ports, there seems to be two USB 3.0 and one HDMI port on the device along with 3.5mm audio jack.

There is no word on pricing but the original listing seems to suggest a release date or August 1, so we have some time before the Chromebook actually reaches the market. We hope to hear more at this week’s Google I/O developer event.
