Acer C720-3404 Review

29 April 2015
  • Excerpt: Powerful and Chromebook? That’s about as useful, to be crude, as a right-mouse button on a Mac. And yet that’s what Acer is pushing on the latest iteration of its C720 notebook. You’ll recognize the model number, of course, as we’ve reviewed it before and have long recommended it as our Chromebook...
  • Pros: Gives even the Google Pixel a genuine run for the money.
  • Cons: Relatively pricey for a Chromebook.

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

  • 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

  • Summary: Thanks to its Haswell-powered CPU, the $249 Acer C720 Chromebook offers better performance than its predecessor and its low-cost competition. Like most Chromebooks, this one is well suited for those who primarily surf the Web, check social networking and play casual games.

Acer C720 Chromebook review

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

Acer C720 Chromebook review

Stuff.tv
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Google’s Chromebooks have usurped netbooks as the cheapo laptops of choice. These mini-wonders simply run the Chrome OS, which simply runs the Chrome browser. It’s all very low-cost, low-power, low-hassle, but that simplicity is both a strength and a weakness.
  • Pros: Cheap, Plenty of ports, Decent battery life
  • Cons: Below-par screen, Tinny speakers, Lacks power

Acer C720 Chromebook review

29 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The C720 is Acer’s latest Chromebook and it improves on its predecessor, the Acer C7 , in almost every way. Its thinner chassis has been completely redesigned, taking more than a few design cues from Samsung’s Series 3 Chromebook, and its tapered sides now measure just 19mm thick.
