All-Day Power

The C720 is extremely powerful, thanks to the Intel Celeron 2955U processor based on the Haswell micro-architecture. You can zip through your tasks and have fun too, without recharging, because the C720 has up to 8.5 hours of battery life.

Internet Life

Log in once and you're set. The C720 syncs and safely backs up all your data in the cloud: docs in Google Drive, emails in Gmail, and even open browser tabs and bookmarks. Collaborate in real time or go solo with hundreds of apps that can be used while offline.

Apps Galore

Play and work from the get-go with your favorite Google apps. Find thousands more in the Chrome Web Store. Everything looks stunning on the C720's 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display. Plus, you can access your media on external drives super-fast via the USB 3.0 port.

Quick and Easy

The C720 makes life easier for you. It starts within just 7 seconds, so you can wait less and do more. You won't be bothered by updates, as they're done automatically. The C720 has virus protection built-in, so it stays healthy -- which reduces your stress too.

Store More

You can save more files on your Chromebook, which comes with 16GB Solid State Drive (SSD), and a SD card reader. It also offers up to 2GB of onboard dual-channel DDRB3L system memory, making it ideal for both work and play.

Google Chrome

The Acer C720 features the Google Chrome OS interface. Fast and intuitive, this new interface allows you to easily pin your favourite apps using right-click, customise the background or resize windows in order to create the best fit computing environment.

HDMI-out Port

If you need a bigger screen, the HDMI interface supports exceptional high-definition viewing on a full range of peripherals. Perfect for connecting to a big-screen HDTV, plugging a HDMI cable into your Chromebook allows the transmission of both audio and high-definition video, up to a 1080p resolution. You'll find lots of compatible HDMI devices are available, or already in your home, so the C720 will fit perfectly into your digital life.

Get Connected

Surf the Internet and stay in touch with your people with reliable, high-speed connectivity via Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth 4.0. A Wi-Fi Certified wireless-N network connection enables long-range, fast, reliable wireless Internet. Acer SignalUp with Nplify technology increases transfer speeds, and reduces dead spots and dropped connections.

The Acer C720 also offers DC-in jack for AC adapter, SD card reader, headphone/speaker jack and USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 allows you to transfer files from your PC to external device up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.

If you use a lot of native Windows apps: iTunes, Skype, Photoshop, and you're not willing to switch to web-based alternatives (Spotify, Hangouts, Pixlr), then stop reading this review now. This is not the laptop for you.

For everyone else, you can't go wrong with the Acer C720. The most impressive part of this laptop, other than the 9 hour battery life (which lives up to its promise), is the silicon powering it. The Intel Celeron processor (based on the Haswell architecture found inside the latest Macbook Air, etc), combined with the ample 2GB of RAM and the lightweight Chrome OS, make this thing absolutely fly. If you're used to browsing on a cheap Windows laptop or one of 2012's Chromebooks, browsing on the Acer C720 will be a significant step up. If you're used to browsing on a top of the line PC or Macbook, this thing offers an equal browsing experience. What this Chromebook does well, it does very well.

The screen is an 11.6 inch matte display with 1366x768 resolution. This is a resolution commonly found on Chromebooks and other reasonably cheap laptops, but it a step above the netbooks of a few years ago. It's a fine display. As it's matte, you don't have to worry about reflections. On the other hand, it's not great in bright sunlight. However, I think this display is perfectly adequate for browsing and watching video. Also, the speakers are really loud. I was surprised that something this small could produce such a noise. The quality of the sound itself is a little bit tinny and lacking in bass, but, again, it's more than good enough for the price.

The keyboard is great. It's a chiclet keyboard and is very responsive.

I love it - This is the best little computer for my needs that I have ever had - I am 70 years old and the first computer I worked with took up a whole air conditioned room and I have worked with many since then. This little machine was so easy to start using - the only setting up is your password and away - absolute magic - I love it - did I say that?

I only use it for emailing, buying on the internet, research, photos, documents, play a few games with friends, watched all of Wimbledon clearer than my husbands (twice the price) laptop and a Smart TV that kept hanging.

I am sure it can do a lot more which other reviewers can add..

I did want a 10" machine really but after reading former reviews settled on this one and really pleased that I did, it is lightweight, easy to use - oh and fast.

Style Name: Non-touch screen 16GB SSDColour Name: Silver
My girlfriend and I bought an Acer C720 for ourselves as an early Xmas present. Her laptop died recently so she needed something to replace it (we also have my laptop), and I wanted something portable for around the flat and for taking on tour with my band. We both wanted something with the portability of a tablet, but that offered my girlfriend the desktop browsing experience and a keyboard. We're also on a bit of a budget, so the Chromebook seemed perfect.

My laptop is five years old but still works fine, as a result I haven't really touched any new laptop-type devices in many years. The first thing that amazed me about the Chromebook is the weight of it, it's incredibly light! I can pick it up with one hand, I'd say it's about the weight of a hardback book. My laptop is so heavy in comparison, and noisy with its constantly whirring fan. The Chromebook is so quiet and a delight to perch on my lap whilst sitting on the sofa.

I already used Chrome as my primary browser before purchasing the Chromebook and I use/own a few other Google products (gmail, google calendar, Android smartphone) so there wasn't much in the way of a learning curve. My girlfriend didn't previously use Chrome but that posed no real problem for her, she also has an Android.

The battery life on this is fantastic. I get about 8 hours out of it (though I've not yet run the battery all the way down), my laptop can give me 90 mins at a push. I use it mainly for browsing the web, watching Youtube / iPlayer, and listening to Spotify.

I think the battery life and portability (as well as the excellent price, £179 from Currys PC World) are the Chromebook's strengths. I love the fact that I can just move anywhere with it around the flat and not worry about having to plug it in everywhere I go.

Had this for a whole 2 hours now and I'm hooked. Got back to the office and there it was, in a box that seemed ridiculously small. Once you get used to no clicky buttons on the touchpad, and the fact it doesn't take years to boot up it's very much like a small laptop, only better - miles better in fact.

As pretty much everything I do is on t'internet this is ideal, syncs seamlessly with my Nexus 5 phone and is very very quick.

Ideal to take out and about in the car with my 3G MiFi, it weighs next to nothing and doesn't get hot at all.

I've had a C720 for about a month, and a C710 for about a year (now moved on to my elderly mum, who couldn't cope with Windows virus issues anymore). Both are great machines for surfing, watching videos, playing browser based games and light office work.
We do have a powerful desktop Win7 PC for games, video editing etc and and some old win7 laptops that are really slow, hardly used, and will be retired soon.
To stop the kids dominating my Chromebook they are getting one each for Christmas (C720). They already mostly do their homework on the Chromebook - either in google docs or microsoft web apps (which works OK on the Chromebook, but is quite cut-down and generally not as good as google docs).
I don't get why people compare Chromebooks with the old slow clunky netbooks that had cramped low resolution screens. The Chromebook has the same screen resolution - 1366x768 as most 15.6" windows laptops, and has a decent processor, the latest Intel Celeron which is probably better than the AMD in many cheap win8 laptops. The 16GB SSD gives very quick performance, and is big enough, given that you can store all your data in the cloud ingoogle drive, or windows skydrive, or on USB stick / SD cards locally. I would say that the overall performance is better than on my work laptop which is an i5 device costing probably 4 times more, but lumbered with Win7.
One downside is printing - you need either a new printer compatible with google cloud print, or to have any printer connected to a windows pc with the chrome browser installed. We use the latter method, which works fine but does mean you need to have a windows pc turned on.
I would also say that it is much more useful than a tablet. We were given a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 by a relation who couldn't get on with it.
