The C720P notebook features an 11.6-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1366×768. All other features remain the same as the non-touch base model released last October.
- Haswell Intel Celeron 2955U processor @ 1.4Ghz
- 32GB SSD
- 2 GB of RAM
- 7.5 hours of battery life
- 2x USB, HDMI, SD Card Slot, Audio Jack, VGA Webcam

Acer announced a new ‘Moonstone White’ version at the Consumer Electronics Show this month.
Based on the price differential between the non-Touchscreen Acer C720 in the US and UK the C720P, which sells for $299 in the USA, should cost somewhere around £250.
Despite Chrome OS’s tailoring towards touch Acer remain the only company to take advantage of it in consumer devices (the Pixel is aimed at developers, not Joe Public).
