Acer C720P Chromebook

 

Hands-on at CES 2014: It's all white with Acer's Haswell-powered 11.6-inch Google laptop

Chromebooks on the whole have to make certain sacrifices to keep the price tag low and usually it’s the screen quality and power that suffers the most. With the C720P, Acer manages to address these issues and while we probably can’t expect a full HD...

Acer C720P Chromebook review

 

Is a Chromebook touchscreen worth $100?

Affordable ; Lightweight ; Speedy Intel CPU ; Good keyboard and touchpad ; Long battery life

Pricier than most Chromebooks ; Touchscreen adds little ; Chrome OS is limited

Acer's C720P Chromebook packs speed, a solid keyboard and endurance in an attractive and lightweight package. But is a touchscreen worth a $100 price hike?

Acer C720p Chromebook review

 

The idea of a touchscreen Chromebook might seem a little odd. After all, Chrome OS is such a lightweight operating system, how would it benefit from adapting it to touch? Well, as it turns out, rather well. The secret lies in the fact that almost...

As a wallet friendly machine for browsing the internet and getting some work done the Acer C720p Chromebook is a great choice. The touchscreen really adds a nice upgrade to an already attractive package, and if you can live within the internet world of...

Quick review: Acer C720P Chromebook

 

Google believes that if you already live a connected life (read have Wi-Fi) you can very easily live off only bread, water and the services they offer.

Touchscreen, good sound, decent price, nice typing experience

Plastic heavy design, not too fast, very little storage space

Acer Touch Chromebook

 

Having recently told you about an Acer Chromebook this has more or less exactly the same specifications but it also has Touch. While touch on a Windows 8 PC gives far more and Touch on an Android or iOS Phone is normal touch on a Chromebook is new.

On the face of it a roughly £100 premium seems quite an extra to pay for the ability to use a finger rather than a mouse or trackpad to move around a screen. So a good amount of my review concentrated on what Touch gives you that is harder to get...

Acer C720P Chromebook

 

Say hello to the Acer Chromebook C720P, a touchscreen-infused revamp of last year's budget-priced Acer C720, which comes packing Google's Chrome OS in some seriously slim and light hardware, but is this the right Chromebook for you, especially with...

The Acer C720P Chromebook is a solid choice if you’re in the market for a Chrome OS-powered machine, and until Samsung’s super quiet, mobile-powered Chromebook 2 hits, Acer’s effort is definitely our favourite low priced Chromebook - just remember,...

Acer C720P Chromebook with touchscreen

 

Acer has added a touchscreen to its 11.6in Chromebook, but what's it good for?

Good looks ; Comfortable keyboard ; Full-sized HDMI

SD card sticks halfway out ; Not much you can do with the touchscreen at the moment

Acer has been quick to add a touchscreen to its Chromebook line up, but there's not much you can do with the touch capability at the moment. If nothing else, it adds some much needed good looks to the Chromebook C720 series, and the C720P is still a...
