Reviews for the Acer C720-2955G01aii

80% Acer Chromebook
Source: Gadgetspeak English
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.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
