The Acer C720 Chromebook with Core i3 is one of the most powerful Chromebooks to date, but it’s not a perfect laptop. The limited screen viewing angles can be frustrating, and some folks would also probably prefer a model with a larger, or higher-resolution display. It’s easier to overlook the Chromebook’s limitations when the price is right: the Acer C720 with an Intel Celeron processor can be yours for as little as $200.

Acer has gone and greatly improved the performance of the Chromebook by using a Core i3 processor with additional RAM which is great but they could have done so much more than what they did. The imrpvoements were only for the processor and little else which means that the design looks no different from the Celeron C720 and all the issues from that still remain except the price has jumped significantly.

The upgraded Acer C720 Chromebook with Core i3 processor is definitely an improvement on the original in power and speed. Its ultra-compact size and 11.6-inch display are great for portability, but I would prefer to see this notebook with a 13-inch display to better take advantage of its productivity potential.

90% Review: Acer C720 Chromebook with Core i3, best value yet

This Chromebook is one of the best I've tested. The performance is excellent and the user experience quite good as a result. If I was in the market for a Chromebook the Acer C720 with Core i3 processor would be my choice. I do find the Celeron processor (Haswell) in the earlier C720 Chromebook that I own to be quite good, and see no need to upgrade.
