If you were planning on purchasing a Chromebook with a touchscreen, you previously only really had one option: at $1,299, Google’s Chromebook Pixel was the only laptop running Chrome OS with a touchscreen.
However, for only $299, you’ll soon be able to get Acer’s C720P Chromebook which features a touchscreen. It’ll be available on Amazon and in Best Buy, and on Acer’s online store.
Startup is still only 7 seconds, and features 7.5 hour battery life. The processor is also a Haswell-based Intel Celeron CPU— all very nice.
You’ll get 32GB of flash storage, more than the 16GB offered by the other model’s in Acer’s C720 line. (This Chromebook is essentially the same as the $199 version, but includes the touchscreen.)
If you’re looking for a device to get some lightweight work done on the go, then this Chromebook is certainly an awesome option.
