Acer C720 Chromebook, Read My View

Updated on September 13, 2014

I Finally Decided To Buy It

Few weeks ago I finally decided to buy a new lap top. I didn't want anything pricy or too big. My previous lap top was old, but it served me good and for a long time. I didn't have any big budget and I didn't want anything big, because I am always in the move.At the end, after weeks of searching and browsing I decided for Acer C720 Chromebook. So in my new Acer Review I will try to describe my experience with this device.

The Chromebook is the lightest computer I've ever hold on. That is why I liked it instantly.

Right when I got my hands on it, I felt comfort. The Chromebook is the lightest computer I've ever hold on. That is why I liked it instantly. You can move it or put it on your lap, you won't feel anything. Another thing I noticed was the crisp HD display. The resolution was excellent, even though the screen is relatively small and the contrast and the brightness were very solid. It is perfect to watch videos on the moving or movies while traveling. Yeah you can have fun while traveling, or when you are not home, because the battery on this thing is amazing. As for the keyword, it works perfectly fine for me. I enjoy typing on my Chromebook, but even more I love the responsive touch pad. I don't need a mouse like on my previous lap top. However, it took me little time to get use to Chrome OS. However, I guarantee you, that only after few days you will get used to it and you are simply going to love it. The features are maybe limited, when compared to Windows, but remember this is one is really secure, simple and blazing fast.

Some Other Features

On my last 6 hour trip, I’ve spent 5 hours on my Acer C720. It had 15% battery left when I arrived, even though I played games, watched movies with normal brightness, listened to music etc.When you buy Chromebook you will get 100GB of Google Drive storage and 60 days of Google Music. I am taking advantage of Google Drive everyday, I can’t believe I didn’t use this service before. Also, you should keep in mind that the speakers on this thing are pretty loud and the sound quality is solid.At the end of the day, I am totally convinced that I made great bargain. The Acer Chromebook is perfect for students or people that are on the move and very active. It is simple, fast, secure and light to carry around. The great battery life is another big advantage of this handy and just beautiful device.

Summary

As for the Acer C720 it works perfectly fine for me. I enjoy typing on my Chromebook, but even more I love the responsive touch pad. I don't need a mouse like on my previous lap top. However, it took me little time to get use to Chrome OS. However, I guarantee you, that only after few days you will get used to it and you are simply going to love it. The features are maybe limited, when compared to Windows, but remember this is one is really secure, simple and blazing fast.
