This latest addition to the C720 family is the C720P-2600 which is simply the touchscreen edition of the C720 in a white chassis. Keep in mind, the internals are all the same as the previous iteration (see the review here) and right in line with all the other Celeron-based Chromebooks on the market right now (those with 2GB of RAM, anyway). The most noticeable differences come in the form of the white exterior (seen on both of the newer HP models) and the touch-enabled display.
This is the Acer C720 variation I am going to get my hands on soon for an updated review focusing on the touch elements and the overall aesthetic of the machine. For $299, it seems like a pretty sweet deal. Not sure if it will replace my HP Chromebook 14 or not, but who knows? Other players like the Toshiba Chromebook and the rumored Samsung Chromebook follow-up have me quite intrigued. Keeping my HP 14 for now, but 2014 is looking awesome!
