The third-generation Chromebook is 30 percent thinner than its predecessor, at 0.75-inches in thickness, and a little lighter, at 2.76 pounds, and won’t hurt the budget at $250.
Arif Maskatia, chief technology officer, Acer America, expects it to sell well.
“The Acer C720 is a significant step forward for our highly-acclaimed Acer Chromebook line, as it delivers speedy performance, quick boot times, a matte anti-glare display and a slimmer design that is portable enough for anywhere use. These key advances allow families and students to continue collaborating, learning and playing in exciting ways, all while staying secure since Chrome OS includes multiple layers of protection from online threats,” said Maskatia.
The Acer C720 provides a vibrant 11.6-inch ComfyView HD display with a 1366×768 resolution and connects to popular consumer electronics devices such as camcorders, digital cameras and smartphones via its fast USB 3.0 port as well as a USB 2.0 port. An HDMI port gets video and content to external displays and HDTVs and other media and files may be accessed through the SD card reader.
The Acer Store will feature the C720-2800 in additional configurations in the coming weeks.
