Reviews for the Acer C720-2955G01aii
This offering from Acer is 28.5x20x2cm the last measurement is at the rear with the thickness at the front only 1cm. A Chromebook is an option to a standard Android Tablet. It works in much the same way and the biggest problem it had at first launch of not being able to work offline is now overcome although there are currently less options than with other Android offerings.
