Acer C720 Chromebook (Core i3) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
29 August 2014
  • Summary: The upgraded Acer C720 Chromebook with Core i3 processor is definitely an improvement on the original in power and speed. Its ultra-compact size and 11.6-inch display are great for portability, but I would prefer to see this notebook with a 13-inch display to better take advantage of its...

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.
  • 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 C720 Chromebook (C720-2800)

PC Magazine
30 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Acer C720 (C720-2800) comes closer to Chromebook nirvana, but we still haven't reached that level yet. It's a couple of tweaks from being the perfect low cost bridge between mobile device and full-fledged laptop.
  • Pros: Quite light and thin. Chrome OS is constantly updated. Matte finish on display. Quick boot times. HDMI and USB 3.0 ports. 6.5 hour battery life.
  • Cons: Chrome OS offers limited offline use. No 3G option. No Touch screen.

  • Conclusion: After all, if those same 2009- and 2010-era netbook price points now have flexible, able full-Windows computers parked on them, like the Transformer Book T100T—and the inevitable competition starts forcing down the prices on those machines, too—where will that leave $250 Chromebooks?
  • Pros: Snappy for Chrome-style multitasking, Good connectivity, including USB 3.0, SD slot, and full-size HDMI
  • Cons: So-so screen, Shallow, tinny-feeling keyboard, Overly slick touch pad, Uninspired design, Offline mode begs for better in-box documentation

Acer C720 Chromebook Review

LAPTOP Magazine
29 October 2013
  • Summary: The $279 HP Chromebook 11 benefits from a brighter screen and more premium design, but we prefer the Acer because of is speed advantage and considerably longer battery life. There's also the older $249 Samsung Series 3 Chromebook, which is slower than the C720 but offers good endurance.

23 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The perfect Chromebook has long been a pipe dream. All Google needed to do was release a model with great battery life and speedy performance for a price that well undercuts a typical Windows laptop. But that’s apparently easier said than done.
  • Pros: Snappy performance, Great battery life, Cheap price tag
  • Cons: Bland design, Tinny speakers, Sticky headphone jack
