Acer Chromebook C720 announced with Intel Haswell processor inside

The battle of the Chromebooks is heating up late this year. Just a couple of days after HP unveiled its Chromebook 11, pioneering Chromebook maker, Acer, is announcing the Chromebook C720 today. Acer previously teased the Chromebook at the Intel Developer Forum last month, but didn't detail its specs.

The Chromebook C270 merits its design philosophy from its predecessor, the Acer C710 Chromebook. But Acer is upping the ante by using Intel's power-efficient Haswell processor which provides eight and a half hours of power on a single charge, Intel said. Performance is also getting a boost, as the Chromebook C270 can reportedly boot in less than seven seconds.

Design-wise, the Chromebook is said to be 30 percent thinner, measuring 0.75-inches thick and weighing just 2.76 pounds, making it easy to carry around. The 11.6-inch HD display proffers a 1,366 x 768 resolution that supports anti-glare technology - an ideal laptop for studious students.

Furthermore, Acer is now using a 4GB DDR3L memory on the Chromebook, as well as solid-state drives , providing more resistance to physical shocks. It's quieter too. For those who are interested, the Acer Chromebook C270 is now available for pre-order at Amazon and Best Buy for $249.99.
