Acer has definitely been putting a lot of work into their Chromebook lineup lately releasing great new models. The Acer C720 is their current model which includes 4GB of RAM, an Intel Celeron Processor which is part of the current Haswell lineup, a good battery, and a great new design all for only $249. I did a full review of that model Chromebook right here on iTechTriad if you would like to know more.
Acer also unveiled a lower cost variant of that Chromebook with all the same specs but half the RAM. That one costs a mere $199 and is definitely a great choice for anyone looking to pick up a Chromebook this holiday season.
Today Acer released yet another variant of the C720 known as the Acer C720P. This variant includes 2GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD, and most notably a touch screen. The only other Chromebook currently on the market is the Chromebook Pixel which is just a bit out of the average person’s budget. This Acer C720P only costs $299, $1,000 less than the Pixel. This Chromebook will most likely be the hit of the current lineup of Acer Chromebooks.
You can pre-order the Acer C720P right now on Amazon for only $299 and through Best Buy and Acer’s store soon.
