Acer C720P Review

 

The latest Chromebook to be put under the Ubergizmo review microscope is the Asus C720p. How does it stack up against the competition? Read this review to find out!

The Acer C720P is a really nice little device–it has a small footprint and a small price tag, but performs very well and the touchscreen display is a joy to watch and to use. I appreciate the minimal design, the smooth surface without any fussy...

Acer Chromebook C720P-2600

 

With a bright, clear touch screen and all-day battery life, the Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 dominates among Chromebooks.

Great boot times and battery life. Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. Bright, anti-glare, 10-point touch screen. Under three pounds. Desktop-class browser. Has 32GB local SSD and 100GB Google Drive storage.

SD cards will stick out of card reader. No 4G/LTE option. Slightly narrow viewing angles.

The Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 has double the storage of previous SSD-powered Chromebooks, and it launches and reboots quicker than hard-drive powered Chromebooks like our previous Editors' Choice for Chromebooks, the Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055)....

Acer C720P Chromebook ( C720P-2600)

 

But for some of you, that may well be enough -- especially if you're splitting time between a Chromebook and another device (a PC, a tablet , or a smartphone).

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.

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.

Acer Chromebook C720P review

 

To love a Chromebook, you have to understand that the idea of a "laptop" is changing. We're somewhere between tablet and PC now, phone-style speed computing and an older, more old-fashioned computer. Chrome OS -- Google's browser-based, all-cloud...

The Acer C720P Chromebook combines a touch screen and good battery life in a stylish, white design.

Attractive white chassis; Affordable; Plenty of ports; Good battery life

Shallow keyboard travel; Display washes out; Few apps optimized for touch

Acer C720P Touch Chromebook Review

 

In October, we reviewed Acer's C720 Chromebook , a Haswell-harboring notebook with excellent battery life and performance to match. The one thing it lacked, however, was a touchscreen, something Acer has addressed with its latest Chrome OS offering:...

There was a lot to like about the Acer C720, and there’s even more to like about the C720P. The laptop is very solid when held, and though plastic from top to bottom, it doesn’t necessarily feel like a machine that costs $299 USD. The touchscreen is a...

Acer C720P Chromebook review: a hero of practicality

 

The Acer C720P Chromebook has been one of the most practical things I've used to date. What a lasting impression it's made.

I loved reviewing this device and, given the fact that it’s under R5 000, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase it as a decent traveling companion. As a writer, it definitely struck a chord with me. The plastic design is comfortable but presents a couple of...

Acer C720P Chromebook puts brawn before beauty [review]

 

I struggle to aptly describe my feelings about Acer's affordable touchscreen Chromebook. The C720P is the lover you keep in the dark, for the benefits, but which you wouldn't be seen with in the daylight. Performance and battery life are wow-worthy....

Acer C720p touchscreen Chromebook review

 

Acer has made a habit of releasing Chromebooks which pack more power than you'd expect into a dirt cheap laptop. The company's Acer C720 Chromebook has an Intel Celeron 2955U processor, an 11.6 inch display, and around 8 hours of battery life. Not bad...

So if you fall into one of those camps, should you consider the Acer C720p Chromebook? Yup. It’s a pretty great value at $300. I just wish it had more memory and a higher resolution display with better viewing angles and better resistance to glare. But...

Acer C720P Chromebook with touchscreen

 

Acer has added a touchscreen to its 11.6in Chromebook, but what's it good for?

Good looks ; Comfortable keyboard ; Full-sized HDMI

SD card sticks halfway out ; Not much you can do with the touchscreen at the moment
