Right, the Acer Cromia was just recently "named" and it seems to fit with their Tablet, which is named Iconia. Sounds like somebody at Acer has hit on a product naming taxonomy. Acer has been around for a long time. I think they are now the #2 PC manufacturer. I currently have several Acer LCD monitors, an Acer Aspire PC and an Acer Aspire laptop, so count me in for the Acer Cromia. Acer products are generally made well and competitively priced.

I had never taken Acer seriously as a company but reading this post made me a little more enlightened. I think new name will appeal to would be buyers.

I just read that there has been ANOTHER name change FROM Cromia TO AC700 Chromebook. Can anyone verify this??? I'm not familiar with the below website but this is where I got the new info.
