Acer C720 Chromebook might have optional touchscreen

Written by Slobodan Simic

It is all about touch

There's been a steady flow of details regarding Acer's upcoming C720 Chromebook and according to the latest leak, this 11.6-inch Intel Celeron 2955U Haswell-equipped Chromebook might end up with an optional touchscreen as well.

While the Intel Celeron 2955U and support for up to 4GB of RAM should birng significantly better performance and more importantly longer battery life when compared to earlier ChromeOS notebooks, the new Acer C720 might also end up with an optional touchscreen as well.

According to details, Acer'S Chromebook C720 will be offered with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM as well as 16GB or 32GB of storage. It will not be the only Chromebook to feature a touch panel considering that Google's own Chromebook Pixel was equipped with one, but Acer's version will definitely be a lot cheaper than the $1,299 Pixel.

According to the rest of the details, the 11.6-inch screen will feature 1366x768 resolution and the C720 will also come with HDMI, USB 3.0, card reader, 720p webcam and 802.11abgn WiFi as well as a 3950mAh battery that should keep it going for around 6 hours. Unfortunately, it appears that both the RAM and the battery are not user replaceable which will not bode well with the DIY crowd and more experienced users.
