Touchscreen Chromebook from Acer

Touchscreen Chromebook from AcerEarly speculation was that a touchscreen version of the company’s Chromebook C720 range was on the way. Recently, Amazon France listed the anticipated device in their listings. Before it gets pulled, those qui pouvait parler un peu français can see some specs here.

This is the first entry-level Chromebook to feature a touchscreen, with Google’s developer-orientated premium-grade Chromebook Pixel having the honour of being the first and only Chromebook to feature touch capabilities to date.

Two major differences from both the $199 C720-2848 and fractionally more expensive C720 are listed:
