Acer C720P Chromebook Review: Conclusion

I’ve already mentioned my thoughts on touchscreen capabilities in laptops. During the course of my Acer C720P Chromebook review, I tried out the multi-touch capability and it works as advertised. So if you feel Chromebooks need a touchscreen and don’t feel like handing over $1299 for a Google Pixel Chromebook, then the $299 Acer C720P is currently your only choice.

For everyone else looking at inexpensive laptop options, based on my Chromebook review results, the Acer C720P is well worth considering, despite the $50 or so premium. Even if you never touch the screen, the sharp display, snappy performance of the Celeron CPU, larger SSD and excellent battery life are worth fifty bucks.

While you can’t have it all for under $300, the Acer C720P proves that cheap Chromebooks can offer advantages like near instant boot times, automatic updates and low cost without leaving users feeling like they’ve made one compromise too many in the search for an affordable laptop.

As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
