Acer has shown the C720 Chromebook at IDF 2013 and now this first Haswell powered ultrabook is finally here. This new Chrome OS laptop features a fast processor and promises to offer superior battery life at the same time, all for a very good price.

The Acer C720 Chromebook sports the following main specs:

  • Processor: Intel Celeron 2955U
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 16 GB SSD
  • Display: 11.6-inch anti-glare ComfyView with 1,366X768 pixels
  • Camera: HD webcam
  • Connectivity: HDMI, dual band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, SD card reader
  • Operating system: Chrome OS
  • Battery life: up to 8.5 hours on a charge
  • Weight: 2.76 pounds

In addition to the above the Acer C720 Chromebook also features a Kensington lock and boots in about 7 seconds, according to Acer. Its light design allows it to be 30 percent thinner than its predecessor.

C720-2800 is the first model in the series and can be pre-ordered at BestBuy and Amazon for a price of only $249.99. The ultrabook is protected by a standard one-year parts and labor warranty which can be extended to three years thanks to the Acer Advantage service. Additional configurations will become available in the coming weeks.
