Announcing the new, affordable touchscreen Chromebook

This new device will help more users experience the best of the tactile web for just $299.

As 90 percent of people move between multiple screens every day, many with touch capabilities, users have become accustomed to connecting closely with devices to get things done. As consumers demand more from their devices, including touch screen as standard, major technology developers continue to battle to produce the latest, most innovative and technology advanced screen on the market. Google announced recently in a blog post:

“As part of this immersive, tactile world, Acer has announced the new Acer C720P Chromebook with a multi-touch screen, adding the second touch-enabled Chromebook to the lineup. Acer’s Chromebooks are consistent best-sellers on Amazon, and this new device will help more users experience the best of the tactile web for just $299.

"The Acer C720P is available for preorder now at Amazon, and the device will hit store shelves in the U.S. and additional countries from this week onwards.”

Google isn’t a stranger to the touch craze with its touch-based Chromebook Pixel, but now its making its latest technology affordable for all. The new Chromebook sports a 11.6-inch touchscreen, a Haswell Intel CPU, 16GB solid state drive, 100GB of Google Drive Cloud Storage and a 30-day free trial to Google Play Music All Access. Like most Chromebooks, it also provides a whopping 7.5 hours of battery life.
