Acer announces C720P Chromebook with a €299 price tag
Since CES 2014 is knocking on the door, companies have started unveiling their latest products that were wrapped for this year. Acer has showed off its latest Chromebook, the new C720P along with other products that would hit the retails only in Switzerland, UK, Russia, France, Sweden and Germany.
Chromebooks are becoming the new deal. Running on Google’s Chrome OS and having a low price tag, this device can be regarded as the extended version of the Chrome browser that you use on your PC.
With a 11.6-inch HD LED back-lit display (touchscreen), the C720P Chromebook features Haswell-powered Intel Celeron 2955U processor, 2GB RAM (which is plenty for Chrome OS) and an improved battery life upto 7.5 hours. The new Acer chromebook is the upgraded version of the previous C7 Chromebook that was released back in November 2012. The device has a 32GB solid-state drive that provides a boot time less than 7 seconds and has a quick resuming from sleep, all thanks to the Haswell technology. This is a great upgrade since the previous C7 Chromebook took 18 seconds to boot up. The latest version retains most of the features but comes with a better build quality and specs.
As always, if you are looking forward to buy this product, you’ll receive free 100GB Google drive storage for two years!
For now, it would hit the European retails mainly carrying a price tag of €299 and would be available in Moonstone White color.
