4 Other reasons to consider the Acer Chromebook C720P

Released Over Two Years Ago

SSD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on notebook PCs of this age and spec. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the HP Chromebook 14[plb_1545160_price] (SSD).

Intel Celeron Processor Family

This portable PC has an Intel Celeron processor family, which is the most frequently found processor family on laptops of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 11.6 inches, the Chromebook C720P has a relatively typical screen size compared to most of the other Chromebooks that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other 11.6" laptops to this portable PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung XE303C12[plb_1570733_price] is also worth considering.

If this laptop screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Google Chromebook Pixel[plb_2964645_price] (12.85") which is also higher rated.
