With Chromebooks always getting better, the Acer C720-2800 Chromebook with the Haswell micro-architecture processor is a fast, multitasking capable, light, compact and an affordable one. You can take it to school, work or anywhere you want as it will fit anywhere easily and work outdoors comfortably on its anti-glare screen with matte finish.

Intel Celeron 2955U at 1.4 GHz and 2MB L3 cache ARM processor with 4GB DDR3L SDRAM memory and 16GB Solid state drive is a good performer that can handle most tasks easily being a Haswell processor (even if a lighter and lower cost version), sufficient amount of RAM and an SSD rather than a Serial ATA for storage. It boots up in six seconds and being a Chromebook the system updates itself regularly (software and security updates) and stays free from viruses. On top of the 16GB SSD, you get the 100 GB of free cloud based storage on Google Drive.

Chromebook C720-2800 is about 30% slimmer than the previous Chromebooks- 0.75 inch thick and weighs only 2.76 lbs. Thanks to its Haswell processor, 3-Cell Li-Polymer battery gives you 8.5 hours of battery life. 11.6 inch anti-glare matte finish HD Widescreen ComfyView LED-backlit Display at 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and Intel HD Graphics with 128 MB RAM is a great quality display. Anti-glare screen means you won't see yourself in the screen while working outdoors in sunlight. Sound through the dual built-in stereo speakers are satisfactory.
