Model:

The Acer C720P-29552G03aii Chromebook is one of the many underdogs in today’s world of gadgets and devices. Chrome OS is probably the main contributor to this. Chrome OS is still very new when compared to the big dogs of gadget OS. However, it provides decent usage for those who only use it for checking emails and browsing the net. The Acer Chromebook comes with an Intel Celeron processor with 1.4 GHz processing speed. With 2GB of RAM and an integrated Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail), do not expect this machine to be a powerhouse.

The touchscreen display is a neat feature which enables it to be a substitute for tablets, but that depends on the user. The 11.6 inch display comes with a 1366 by 768 pixel dimension, which is pretty decent for its class. It provides clear displays for pictures and streaming HD videos. The light weight of the Acer Chromebook, 1.3 kg, is also a plus point.

It comes with the basic connectivity capabilities such as the dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 and is Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. It does not support data connectivity such as 3G and 4G LTE, however. Due to its thin size, it comes with only two USB ports; one USB 3.0 on one side, and one USB 2.0 on the other side. In short, the Acer Chromebook is not a flashy laptop with over the edge technology or stunningly beautiful display. Its processing abilities are nevertheless surprising.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

2955U: Entry level ULV dual core processor with integrated graphics card called Intel HD Graphics and reduced features of the Haswell core (no Turbo Boost, AES, ...).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

1.3 kg:

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