Review Acer C720-2800 Chromebook

 

Back to basics. While efforts continue to try and rework the Chromebook equation to provide a more enticing balance of performance and build quality, Acer sees no harm in sticking to the original plan, with a budget plastic case design, an understated...

Extremely portable; Excellent battery life; Good application performance; Smooth video playback and output to external monitor; Good touchpad

Cheap plastic build; Unremarkable display panel; Below-average, clattery keyboard; Mediocre audio performance; Warranty void sticker prevents access to internals

Perhaps, then, it would be better off viewing the Acer C720-2800 Chromebook as an alternative to a tablet or netbook than a replacement for a full-blown computer. Approached from this perspective, it serves as a logical candidate for someone who is in...

Acer C720 Chromebook (C720-3404)

 

The Acer C720 adds an Intel Core i3 processor to the company's Chromebook lineup. Chrome OS power users who rely on dozens of extensions and plugins should feel the benefit, but they'll pay.

Seven hours of battery life. 4GB of memory and a Intel Core i3 CPU. HDMI and USB 3.0 ports

Relatively expensive. Narrow viewing angles. Drab design

The Acer C720 Chromebook (C720-3404) ($379.99 as tested) is a power user's Chromebook, which at first seems to be an oxymoron. If you've already had experience with Chrome OS-based laptops, but want a system with a bit more power for multitasking or...

Acer C720 Chromebook (Core i3) Review

 

The updated Acer C720 Chromebook is a faster, more powerful improvement on the original model, but is it worth the upgrade?

Faster than the original C720; Lightweight and ultra-portable; Good battery life

Bland design; Limited app selection

The Core i3 version of the Acer C720 Chrombeook is a faster, more powerful improvement on the original.

Acer Chromebook C720P review: King of the budget Chromebooks

 

The Acer Chromebook C720P manages to get better at all the key things, adding up to a little laptop alternative that's better than any budget Chromebook we've seen before.

The Acer Chromebook C720P has a good keyboard, an SD expansion slot, USB 2 and 3 ports, and HDMI, plus a touch screen. It also has more onboard storage (32GB) than most entry-level Chromebooks, and better battery life than most previous Chromebooks

Low-end price is matched by its low-end feel. Chrome OS has natural limitations. Touch isn't always that useful in Chrome

Dim display; Bland design; Limited app selection

Acer C720 review (Core i3): a more powerful Chromebook

 

Whether rightly or wrongly, Chromebooks have earned a reputation for being the new netbooks. Slowly, though, things are starting to change. The designs

Core i3 processor offers modest, but noticeable performance gains ; Battery life keeps pace with lower-powered models ; Generally a good value, especially considering the price

Screen has poor viewing angles ; Generally cheap build quality, including a shallow keyboard ; Only Acer's lower-end Chromebook is offered with a touchscreen

As the first Chromebook with a Core i3 processor, the Acer C720 offers modest performance gains over its rivals, along with equally long battery life. You might want to wait and see if other laptop makers come out with something a little better...

Acer C720 Chromebook Unboxing

 

We strip down the Acer C720 retail packaging. It is a $200 Intel Haswell Chromebook meaning that it has the potential to be much useful than a normal Chromebook.

Included: The power cord and AC adapter, the C720, and some literature. Stay tuned for the full review soon.

If you typically have a solid Internet connection and use your laptop for browsing the Internet, reading and sending emails, casual gaming and the like, you can't find a cheaper yet capable alternative than the Acer C720 Chromebook. If you rely on...

Unresponsive touchpad, Average screen quality, Lack of USB charging, Chrome Web Store is still growing

Acer Aspire C720 w/ core i3

 

The 32GB storage is fairly small, but it is an SSD, and is great for your OS, with some fast space left over. We live in an age of external storage. If you need more, use USB sticks, NAS boxes over wireless network, or cloud storage. Some high end...

I love this little Chromebook. I loaded up Fedora 20 and added a wireless mouse. It is quick and powerful. I use it for web browsing, Wireshark, and some Python development in Idle3.4 ; The fast cpu, 4GB RAM, and 32GB SSD keep performance snappy

I can get over the 720P screen because the form factor is so small, but would still prefer 1080p or 1024. I hate all touch pads. Get a small wireless mouse
