Back in the month of July, Acer released C710 chromebook, and at the IDF 2013, Acer showed off its new Chromium laptop, the C720 to the press in Amsterdam. The C720 clearly shows how far Acer has come compared to the C7 (released in November 2012) and C710 (July 2013). The C720 is now very like an ultrabook, which makes it a very good-looking, modern laptop. The casing is still poly-carbonate, but screams quality and finish. From a meter distance, one can mistake its surface for metal. Read this more to find out more about it.
The keyboard of C720 is chiclet type, which means it has isolated keys. The keyboard is waterproof to certain extent as the manufacture claims that it can resist up to 30 cc of fluid. Under the shell, you will find Intel Celeron 2955u haswell processor. Other specs include 2 or 4 gigabyte RAM, depending on the configuration you choose. For storage, you get 16GB of flash storage. While the processor is not top of the line, it is more than enough for running a light weight operating system like Chromium.
Among other features is its glare-type 11.6 inch cine crystal display with HD resolution. There is webcam, card reader, Kensington security slot, 2x stereo speakers and a 3950 mAh battery as well. Acer will start distributing C720 chromebook in US very soon. While we do not know how much it will cost, we have been told that it will cost same as Acer C7.
