The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 retails for $329; this price is at par with the current entry-level iPad. It's aimed primarily at the education market but it marks the end of the Android tablet era for Google, as it focuses its attention on Chrome OS across both laptops and tablet devices.

Round Rock ISD said classes would run as scheduled but added that they would accept late arrivals due to traffic. Jeff Reeb said he has lived next to Conditt's parents for about 17 years and described them as good neighbors.

In terms of those physical dimensions, Acer has confirmed the Chromebook Tab 10 measures 6.78-inches in width, 9.38-inches in depth, and 0.39-inches in height; while weighing in at 1.21 pounds (550 grams). The Tab 10 has stylus support and even comes with one from graphic-tablet maker Wacom. The Chromebook Tab 10 is powered by an OP1 processor which is further paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. When compared to the iPad, the Chromebook is actually a bit heavier and also a bit thicker.

'Trump said he loved me', claims former Playboy model
McDougal says she first met Trump at the Playboy Mansion in June 2006 when he was filming the TV show " The Apprentice ". For the 10 months that they were together, McDougal said, they saw each other a minimum of five times a month.

The tablet uses USB Type-C port for charging and supports 3.5mm headphone jack and dual speakers for audio playback. The stylus doesn't need to be charged and has a dedicated slot of its own, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note series. Acer did not state the battery capacity but has mentioned that it will give you a battery life of up to 10 hours. Until now, the Chrome OS was only seen running on notebooks, convertibles, all-in-one PCs, as well as tiny desktops. If anything, don't be surprised if we get a wave of them throughout the next year as manufacturers test those tablet waters again after the big Android tablet bust, but also because Google likely has even more planned to make Chrome OS a great tablet experience. This 10-inch tablet will launch in the USA in April before expanding to the rest of the world in May. Design-wise, the tablet appears to be quite solid and is being marketed heavily towards the education market. Expeditions AR is Google's AR technology that maps the classroom and places 3D objects in it for students to study, making subjects such as biology, geography and astronomy easier to comprehend. The North American launch would be followed by Europe, Middle East and Africa in May for €329, including Value-Added Tax. Deep-sea blue has been the color of choice for the Tab 10, although there might be more colors to come in the future.
