Acer’s new touchscreen C720 Chromebook comes in white for $299

The fashion conscious may want to take note of Acer’s newest Chromebook, announced on Friday. The C720P-2600 is a slightly different configuration of the company’s current touchscreen model, available in Moonstone White next week for $299.99.

Aside from the color change — which looks visually appealing compared to the current grey model — there’s little else here that’s different.

The device has an 11.6-inch 10-point touchscreen with 1366 x 768 resolution and runs on the Haswell-based Intel(s intc) Celeron 2955U processor. That means it should provide around 7.5 hours of battery life on a single charge. Connectivity is found through 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and the Chromebook has an integrated HD webcam. There’s just 2 GB of memory to run the Chrome OS, which could present a performance challenge for heavy-duty usage with dozens of browser tabs open.

Same here Jeff. I’m still looking for the elusive $249 model without a touch screen and 4GB of RAM. Can’t find that model anywhere

Amazon did have it (that’s where I bought mine), but it no longer appears to be available directly from them.
