Other features of the Acer C720P include a long battery life, with the tech company promising up to 7.5 hours battery life. The C720P only weighs 2.98 pounds and is 0.78-inches thick and also has a webcam, dual stereo speakers, USB 3.0/2.0 ports, an external HDMI hook-up and 100GB Google Drive space for two years, described Pocket-lint.com

“Our new touchscreen C720P gives customers an intuitive way to browse sites online, enjoy apps, and do more with Chromebook,” said Arif Mastakia, chief technology officer of Acer.

Reviewers at Hexus.net seems to agree with Mastakia, writing that Acer C720P is definitely well positioned to try and challenge sales of budget Windows touchscreen notebooks and non-touch Chromebooks during the holiday season.
