  • Excerpt: If you want the quickest Chromebook apart from Google's $1,299 Core i5 Pixel, the Core i3 version of Acer's venerable C720 is worth a look, but the system still shows its netbook roots.
  • Pros: Perky performance, Plenty of ports
  • Cons: Costly for a Chromebook, So-so keyboard, Narrow viewing angles

Review Acer C720-2800 Chromebook

Notebookcheck
27 November 2013
  • Summary: 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 appearance, and an x86 chipset—all for $249. How does it compare?
  • Pros: Extremely portable, Excellent battery life, Good application performance, Smooth video playback and output to external monitor, Good touchpad, The surprising speed, excellent battery life, and low price
  • Cons: Cheap plastic build, Unremarkable display panel, Below-average, clattery keyboard, Mediocre audio performance, Warranty void sticker prevents access to internals, A much better keyboard, sturdier build, and an IPS screen

Acer Chromebook C720

  • Conclusion: If you've decided you want a Chromebook, the Acer Chromebook C720 is worth a look. Sure it's not as good looking as the also new HP Chromebook 11, but it's faster and has longer battery life than most competing models, including HP's. That makes the Acer appealing to first time Chromebook buyers who are accustomed to faster hardware on PC platforms and to more experienced Chromebook users who tend to hit hard with lots of open tabs and multitasking.
  • Pros: Wildly affordable, sturdy, faster than the average Chromebook with more RAM.
  • Cons: Display quality is middling.

Acer Chromebook C720: Just a glorified browser or is it much more?

  • Summary: Chromebooks are still a new idea, so it helps a great deal that the C720 has such great pricing. If you are heavily into gaming or need to run specific software for your work, then you can forget about this machine – the lack of serious games is a big disadvantage. But there are a lot of use cases, where the C720 Chromebook makes so much sense.
