Archos has released the ArcBook netbook, and it’s available now for a low price of $169.99.

“Archos ArcBook combines a consumer-friendly tablet experience with the productivity of a netbook,” says Loïc Poirier, CEO of Archos. “The Archos ArcBook furthers our commitment to providing feature-rich, consumer-friendly technology at an affordable price.”

The specs show that the new ArcBook has a 10.1-inch capacitive multi-touch screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution, backed by a RockChip RK3168 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and an 8000 mAh battery promising more than 10 hours of continuous use. The netbook also has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage (6 GB is usable), and a microSD card slot for even more storage.

The specs also show that the netbook uses Google’s Android 4.2 “Jelly Bean” platform, complete with the company’s services like Google Play, the Chrome browser, Gmail and so on. There’s also a front-facing camera for selfies and video chats, a complete keyboard with Android function keys, two built-in speakers, two microUSB 2.0 ports, a full USB 2.0 port and an audio jack.

Presumably, the device has Wireless N connectivity at the least, although the specs don’t show any wireless networking hardware. However, the company does mention that the Android netbook provides the full version of Office Suite 6, which allows users to create, edit, read and print Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.
