With the last shopping season of 2013 in full swing, bargains are to be had left and right. However, some products can be quite gift-worthy without additional price cuts.
Acer America announced last week the availability of its first touchscreen Chromebook. The Acer C720P combines the benefits of touch interaction with a compact, 11.6 inch display Chromebook.
Tablets are all the rage right now, but it doesn’t mean that laptops are down and out. Especially if they too are light in form and big on function. Even though there are many options to connect a wireless keyboard with a tablet, some of us simply don’t want to have to tote around one more item.
The Acer C720P Chromebook features many similar qualities to the most popular tablets out there: touch (duh), HD LED back-lit display, performance, and battery life. The touch display lets users control and navigate the Chromebook with all the touch-gestures we’ve grown familiar with.
One of the benefits of the Acer C720P Chromebook is the fast processor, which is fantastic for multi-tasking apps/programs or playing games. It’s an energy-sipper too, but we all know that most of the battery life is likely to get crushed by the bright display output. Still, 7.5 hours is pretty darn good.
Lightweight? You betcha. The Acer C720P Chromebook is shy of 0.8-inches thick and weighs less than 3 pounds. Sure, it’s a bit more than a tablet, but considering the keyboard as well as all the additional hardware it’s a wash.
The Acer C720P Chromebook is pretty affordable too. The base configuration starts at $299.99 and is available now on Amazon, Best Buy, and the Acer Store.
