Mobile business owners who need to get online fast and travel light now have a new option. The Acer Chromebook C720 is the latest of the company’s Google Chromebooks.
At less then an inch thick, the new Acer Chromebook should be sufficiently mobile as an alternative to a tablet. Of course, it does have limits. Chromebooks are good for getting on the Web in a flash. But other than that, their uses are fairly limited.
Still, if quick online access is critical they remain a viable option.
Here’s a quick overview of the new Acer Chromebook device from Notebook Italia:
Stripped Down Acer Chromebook Offers Useful Features
The new Acer Chromebook is 30 percent thinner than the company’s last model. And Acer promotes the Chromebook’s ability to get online – using the Google Chrome browser – in just 7 seconds.
It features an 11.6-inch anti-glare monitor and a full-size keyboard. The full keyboard is a plus for those who simply can’t type on a tablet or prefer a traditional set of keys.
It can also connect to a second display through an HDMI port and you can connect other devices to it through the USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports.
Inside, the Chromebook has a new Intel processor based on Haswell micro-architecture, Acer said in an official release.
But don’t let the lack of additional features bother you. The new Acer Chromebook C720 is selling for about $250 at Amazon.com and at Best Buy stores.
So, if you’re using cloud storage like Google Drive and get most of your business work completed through online apps, it could be an affordable option.
