Back in September, Google unveiled a range of new Haswell-powered Chromebooks, and up until now we hadn’t heard much more about them. Over the weekend, the team at Mountain View updated the official Chromebook Play Store page with a revised version of Acer’s current Chromebook, the C7, which retails for $199.

The revamped version of the C7 ships with a Haswell processor, 2GB of RAM, an 11.6-inch LCD display and a 16GB SSD. In addition, for those who don’t wish to downgrade their RAM, the previous model of the C7 will remain available on Google Play for $249, and will continue to pack 4GB of DDR3 RAM.

It’s safe to say that a Chromebook is the perfect purchase for anyone who uses a browser window for most of the time and mainly uses Google’s services. The Chrome OS allows users to smoothly and seamlessly create documents, edit photos, update social feeds, sync bookmarks, update maps, save contacts and reply to e-mails everywhere they go, providing they have access to the internet, and thanks to the built-in 4G LTE connection that C7 features, most of the time they will.
