Archos ArcBook: the Android laptop,

There are ways to install Android on any laptop, but the best way to experience this OS is to use it on a device specially created for it. In this regard, a company named Archos decided to create a low-budget laptop that’s based on the Rockchip RK3168 platform. The new device has a 10.1 inch display (1024 x 600) with touch technology, it will be named Archos ArcBook and it will cost $169.99. It will run the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.


Specifications: a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM and PowerVR SGX540 graphical chip. Archos ArcBook has 8 GB of storage space and a 8000mAh battery that promises above-average autonomy. Although the laptop is cheap, it has enough computational capabilities to perform usual tasks. Also, having access to Play Store apps is definitely a plus.
