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 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.

Good buy


This is an awesome buy. I am glad I did it.

Super light, looks good, 8hr battery life, webcam is good, sound is pretty good, fast, awesome price, etc ; It has been a dream to bring this to classes after my old 7lb Toshiba. A DREAM

Better than a smart phone!


This is actually useful and boy is it fast! Everything I wanted in a Smartphone. Only downside, had to get a mouse because I did not care for the touchpad. Much prefer this to my two standard laptops! I do not use the Chromebook for word processing. I...

Love It!!!!


I love my Acer Chromebook! It boots in less than 10 seconds, and Internet download speeds are incredible! An excellent addition to a conventional laptop or desk top. Downloading files, pictures or videos to a flash drive is a piece of cake, which can...

very good fit to our need


It is being used by our 9 year old. He seems quite happy with it. I would seriously think about Google Chrome for my next computer. Without saying what my current system is, I'm sure that a lot of folks feel the same

Great Chromebook


First of all, this is a chromebook. This is not a Mac or Windows laptop, meaning you will not be able to install any applications besides the web applications available on google. However, since this is an intel based chromebook, you can install linux...

Too Good to Be True


What all of the descriptions fail to mention is that you cannot load any software on this laptop. You can only use it for apps from the Google Store. Useless, unless you just want something to check your gmail on the go. Disappointing, because...
