Acer Announces Its First Chromebook…With Touchscreen

Chromebooks (with the exception of the Chromebook Pixel) aren’t usually at the cutting edge of technology. Most of the time, these devices use components used for entry-level laptops and usually pales in comparison in terms of power with other Windows- or Android-based devices in the same price category.

Fortunately, there are still a number of manufacturers who are still putting their faith on Google’s definition of a mobile computing device. For instance, Acer has announced its first touchscreen Chromebook – the C720P.

The C720P features an 11.6-inch LED display with 720p resolution. The Chromebook is powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U processor and sports a 32GB solid state drive with 2GB of DDR3 RAM.

Furthermore, the C720P also comes with both USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, an HDMI jack, SD card slot and 100GB Google Drive space for two years. The device tips the scales at 2.98 pounds and measures 0.78 inch thick.

The Acer Chromebook C720P will be available in early December initially in the United States for $299 on Amazon, Best Buy and the Acer Store.
