Acer prices new C720P touchscreen Chromebook at just $299 Acer has announced that their upcoming C720P touchscreen Chromebook will be priced at just $299, a very affordable price given the specs.
Until the C720P launches, the only Chromebook option with a touchscreen is Google's pricey high-end Pixel, which is a $1299 reference device.

Besides the multi-touch 11.6-inch HD LED back-lit display (1366768 resolution), the notebook has a Haswell-based Intel Celeron, 32GB internal storage, 2GB RAM and the company claims a 7 second startup with 7.5 hour battery life.



Additionally, the new device features an integrated HD webcam, dual speaker design, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. It measures 0.78-inches and weighs just 2.98 pounds.

The new device will go on sale through Acer, Amazon and Best Buy in December.
