Reviews for the Acer C720P-2666 Chromebook
Source: Tech Advisor
The C720 doesn’t excel in any particular department, but it scores highly enough in most of them to make it a good all-rounder. Lightweight, fast, cheap, and actually quite a cool looking device. The keyboard is a little underwhelming, but for the money it’s a very easy machine to recommend.

As with the previous model, the C720P has excellent battery life. When using it for near-constant browsing and occasional music, we pulled in over 6 hours, and when used carefully (reduced display brightness and such), you can get it over the 7 hour mark. In summary, it is small, light, and inexpensive, three markers that make it appeal to many varieties of users. Those who have been holding out for an inexpensive Chromebook with a touch display will find the Acer C720P to be an excellent choice, doing all the things a Chromebook does best.

Acer's C720P is essentially the same C720 Chromebook but with a touchscreen based display. Thanks to their low pricing, this puts it only slightly more expensive than competing Chromebooks but with more local storage on it and touch. It would have been nice to see a design update but that would have likely increased the overall cost which is critical to many consumers.
