Acer C720 is an 11.6 incher which proves to be an ideal device for basic usage. C720 with Chrome oS functions primarily with the help of Wi-Fi connectivity (only). The 1366×768 display is standard and in terms of build, finish and looks the C720 is no stunner but is carried around a well-built body.

In terms of hardware, the C720 packs a Celeron 4th generation chipset clubbed with 2 gB raM which is decent enough for an 11.6 inch device. one can easily watch movies, listen to music and in our case the C720 worked well as a primary device. ‘no internet no Chromebook’ seems to be the general consensus but as we figured out even without internet, one can fit an external/USB drive and keep the work going, also do remember to keep saving your work on the drive location as there are no auto-save features for document apps like Quick office in this case.

The keyboard on C720 is quite cumbersome and the same is our feedback on the trackpad. Chromebook is fitted with USB ports, front HD webcam and even HDMI port for display connectivity.

We tried out a few Chrome OS benchmark tools like Sun Spider 1.0.2 (352 milli seconds), octane (9451), peacekeeper (2872) and lastly kraken (2741). These tools basically help us analyze the web surfing capability of the Chromebook. The basic keyboard functions differ from the usual and with options like volume up/down; multi-tab on the top most row of the keypad, however there is no delete button on any Chromebook. In terms of battery life, the C720 lasted up to 8 hours on normal usage.
