There are many more Chrome OS tablet devices like the Google’s own Pixelbook, the most expensive 2-in-1 Chromebook which costs $999 for the base model.

Why is this Acer tablet in highlight?

The reason behind this is the syndication of Chrome OS with the tablet. The tablet will be known as the first Chome OS tablet as the Chrome OS is present only in Chromebooks as of now. And this will be the first time when a company will introduce Chrome OS on a tablet.

It is easy to note that the tablet will be aimed at the education market. And according to Futuresource consulting, Google OS accounted for 58 percent of the US primary and secondary schools. The main reason behind the success of Chromebooks is their ease to operate and low range pricing which can be affordable for daily education needs.
