Reviews for the Acer C720P-2600 Chromebook

80% Acer C720p Chromebook review: A budget Chrome OS laptop with a touchscreen
Source: PC Advisor English
As a wallet friendly machine for browsing the internet and getting some work done the Acer C720p Chromebook is a great choice. The touchscreen really adds a nice upgrade to an already attractive package, and if you can live within the internet world of Chrome OS, then at this price you can’t go wrong.

80% Acer Touch Chromebook
Source: Gadgetspeak English
Having recently told you about an Acer Chromebook this has more or less exactly the same specifications but it also has Touch. While touch on a Windows 8 PC gives far more and Touch on an Android or iOS Phone is normal touch on a Chromebook is new. So now the $64,000 question is it worth another £100 to have touch. With plenty of splinters to prove the point I sit on the fence.

The Acer C720p Chromebook isn’t as pretty as the Google Chromebook Pixel or even the HP Chromebook 11. But it’s one of the fastest Chrome OS laptops around. It’s the cheapest model with a touchscreen. And it gets all-day battery life (assuming you count your day as a work-day with a lunch break). That means you might be able to leave the moderately bulky power adapter at home.

The Acer C720P Chromebook is a solid choice if you’re in the market for a Chrome OS-powered machine, and until Samsung’s super quiet, mobile-powered Chromebook 2 hits, Acer’s effort is definitely our favourite low priced Chromebook - just remember, there’s an even cheaper option available if you don’t need a touchscreen.

The Acer C720P Chromebook is a solid laptop. The processor is adequately quick, the keyboard and touchpad hold up under heavy use, and the battery offers plenty of life for a system of this size. Given these traits, it’s easy to see why some consumers are picking Chromebooks instead of Windows-based alternatives.

80% Acer C720P Chromebook review Is a Chromebook touchscreen worth $100?
Source: Techradar English
As an affordable laptop, the Acer C720P Chromebook has a lot to offer: A thin and light design, an excellent keyboard and touchpad, and impressively endurance. As a Chromebook, however, the C720P fails to justify its above-average price tag. The gimmicky touchscreen bumps the cost up to $300, without adding real value to the system. The HP Chromebook 11, by comparison, provides an almost flawless Chrome OS experience without a touchscreen. And if you absolutely must have a touch-sensitive display, the Asus X102BA offers a much more satisfying touchscreen experience for $50 less.

The ubiquity of Internet access, along with the increasing reliability and decreasing cost of online storage, means that you won’t necessarily need to give up too much to replace your current Web-browsing laptop or desktop with a Chrome OS system like the Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 ($299.99 list). With a bright, clear touch screen and all-day battery life, the Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 dominates among Chromebooks.

The Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 has double the storage of previous SSD-powered Chromebooks, and it launches and reboots quicker than hard-drive powered Chromebooks like our previous Editors' Choice for Chromebooks, the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055). The C720P-2600 also has a better feature set, including more modern styling, an updated LCD with 10-point touch capability and almost 7.5-hour battery life. Add the fact that you won't have to worry about knocking the SSD-based storage around in transport or while in use, the Chromebook C720P-2600 cements the position of our latest Editors' Choice for Chromebooks.

70% King of the budget Chromebooks
Source: CNet English
To love a Chromebook, you have to understand that the idea of a "laptop" is changing. We're somewhere between tablet and PC now, phone-style speed computing and an older, more old-fashioned computer. The Acer Chromebook C720P manages to get better at all the key things, adding up to a little laptop alternative that's better than any budget Chromebook we've seen before.

Hands on: Acer C720P-2600 Chromebook review
Source: Techradar English
There's no way to look at the C720P-2600 and not say it's simply a white washed C720 in "moonlight white." The original C720P was a more than competent and popular Chomebook option with a bit of touchscreen functionality to add the point and pick navigation option. The Acer C720P-2600 Chromebook will be available for a starting price of $299 (about £182/AUS $332) in early January.

Acer C720P Chromebook
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Chromebooks on the whole have to make certain sacrifices to keep the price tag low and usually it’s the screen quality and power that suffers the most. With the C720P, Acer manages to address these issues and while we probably can’t expect a full HD display anytime soon, the one on the C720P is really not bad at all. Combine that with the zippy Intel Haswell power, touted battery life and surprisingly attractive design, this is a sign that the Chromebook is going in the right direction.

Hands-on: Acer Chromebook C720P review
Source: Pocket Lint English
Chromebooks look here to stay, and the C720P is a price savvy offering. But the screen is not all that and, realistically, we'd either opt for the non-touch version for less cash or bypass Chromebook altogether and opt for a tablet instead. That's what it boils down to.

Intel HD Graphics (Haswell): In the mobile Haswell Celeron and Pentium integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs).

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.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


77.78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
