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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
