Acer C720P Chromebook, Intel Celeron, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD, 11.6" Touch Screen, White

Product information

The C720P Chromebook from Acer brings Chrome OS to your fingertips thanks to its fantastic capacitive touch screen. Like all Chromebooks, the C720P is running Google's Chrome OS, for a fast and simple web based computing experience. Chromebooks are designed to be lightweight computers that exclusively run web apps, so you don't need to clog up your hard drive and slow everything down by installing various programs. They're great for working on documents and browsing the web and are incredibly secure.

A Touch of Control
The C720P comes equipped with a 10-point capacitive touch screen. Use gestures such as swipe, tap and pinch to zoom to interact with your Chromebook and get more out of apps, websites and games.

One For The Future
Chrome OS is designed help your computer get better with age. It features built-in virus protection, while updates and backups occur automatically, without detracting from your experience as a user and giving this computer a much longer life expectancy than other machines. The Intel Celeron processor, combined with 2GB of RAM and 16GB solid state drive will ensure that your computer and its browser load in seconds. 16GB might not sound like much, but the C720P comes with 100GB of free Google Drive cloud storage for two years, so your files will be accessible from any device, anywhere with an internet connection.

The World of Web Apps
Unlike other computers, Chromebooks exclusively use web apps to perform tasks. Your Chromebook will come with the Google Chrome web browser already installed and several Web Apps, like GMail, YouTube and more ready for you to explore. Using web apps means that programs no longer clog up your system and slow things down. You'll be able to access even more apps through the Chrome Web Store, which is packed with thousands of apps for fun and productivity. Many of these apps run in HTML5, too, meaning that you'll be able to use them, even when you're not connected to the Internet.

Chrome On The Go
This portable computer weighs just 1.35kg, so you won't find it weighing you down in your bag. It also features a battery life of up to seven and half hours, so you can keep computing for longer without having to find a charger or plug socket.

Connect to more
With two USB ports (including an ultrafast USB 3.0 socket), you'll be able to connect external drives, mice and other peripherals to your Chromebook, while a memory card slot will help you access photos taken on your camera without the need for extra cables. An HDMI port is included, so you can hook your C720P up to a television, projector or monitor for some large screen entertainment, while the HD webcam and built-in microphone is ideal for keeping in video contact with friends and family across the globe.

Q & As


Acer C720P Chromebook, Intel Celeron, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD, 11.6" Touch Screen, White 5 5 1 1
So far, so very good I'm generally an Apple person for personal use ( ipad/phone) with a Dell laptop for work. I've had this ACER, my first, for a week and it's been great. I really like the touch screen option (as per ipad) but the keyboard works really well of course. The machine is fast to use and quick to boot up. If you want a Chromebook I can't fault this one, at least not yet. 09 August 2014
