The new C720P provides the many benefits of touch on the device's 11.6-inch HD LED back-lit display (1366x768) to take advantage of the Chrome interface.

Like the rest of the new C720 line, the new C720P touchscreen model is powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U processor based on the Intel Haswell micro-architecture. Acers says the Chromebook as an up to 7.5 hours battery life.

Other fatures include a 32 GB SSD that provides a boot time of less than 7 seconds and quick resuming from sleep. In addition, the touchscreen C720P features 2 GB of DDR3 memory. Plus, the Acer C720 connects to hotspots and wireless networks via 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi.

The Acer C720P Chromebook measures 0.78-inches and weighs 2.98 pounds. It has an integrated HD webcam, a dual speaker design, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports along with an HDMI.

Of course, the Chrome OS is updated automatically, so it always has the latest features. Multiple layers of security features including data encryption and verified boot defend the Acer C720P Chromebook against online threats, malware and viruses. Users can also have separate accounts to ensure their project, Gmail and other information is kept safe if the Chromebook is lost, stolen, or lent to a friend.

Acer is also offering Chromebook customers access up to 100 GB of free Google Drive storage for the first two years after purchase. Also, the new Acer C720P model comes with 12 free Gogo Inflight passes to allow users to stay online even while on a flight.

The Acer C720P will be available for in several configurations in early December at Amazon.com, Best Buy and the Acer Store for a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $299.99 in the United States. It comes with a standard one-year parts and labor warranty, which can be extended to three years with the Acer Advantage service.
