Archos ArcBook is the first Androidbook by the manufacture who was earlier known for its budget multimedia tablets like Element 97. We now have its pricing details and its review video which is an excellent way to see how this cheap Android laptop looks in broad daylight. The ArcBook will be available coming June with a price tag of just 149 Euro. The category of Androidbook is yet to be discovered and picked up by popular manufactures even though its sibling Chromebook is being offered by many already.
The device feels quite snappy and design lines are simple but pleasing. Its cover is made of brushed aluminum finish that adds a touch of elegance to it. There are plenty of modules on the Archos ArcBook such as a USB host port, two microUSB 2.0, a slot for MicroSD cards, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 8000 mAh battery that should provide up to 10 hours of continuous use.
