11.6 inch Acer C720P-2666 is Acer's first Chromebook with touchscreen. It is actually the computer industry's second touch Chromebook after Google's $1300 Pixel model, and it is way more affordable too- about $1000 cheaper!

Conclusion: Acer C720P-2666 Chromebook is due to be released early December as 'the first affordable Touchscreen Chromebook in the world'. It is actually not much different to Acer's other C720 range Chromebooks.. Fast performance, good multitasking, same long battery life, same multiple layers of security, similar great looks, twice the flash drive size and a touchscreen. It is definitely a great buy for under $300.
