Las Vegas, January 3 2014 - Acer today extends its touchscreen Chromebook line, with a new configuration in a new colour - the Acer C720P-2600 in Moonstone White.

The striking Moonstone White chassis complements the sleek design of the C720P-2600 Chromebook. The entire chassis is white, giving the device a consistently stylish look from any angle. In addition, customers will enjoy the benefit of touch on the device's 11.6-inch HD LED back-lit display to do more with Chrome apps, media, games and more.

The 10-point touch display allows customers to interact naturally with the device, using gestures such as swipe, tap and pinch to zoom. This enhances the experience with apps, websites, Google Docs, games and more to make Chrome even more intuitive and personal. In addition, the 1366x768 resolution keeps websites, images and video crisp and clear.

The highly acclaimed Acer C720 Chromebook line has received numerous awards and accolades this fall for its performance, battery life, and value. The line includes models for consumers as well as business and education customers.

Like the rest of the new C720 line, the new C720P-2600 touchscreen model is powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U processor based on the Intel Haswell micro-architecture, so it delivers fast performance and excellent multi-tasking such as running multiple tabs and apps. The processor also enhances battery life; it keeps customers going for up to 7.5 hours for extra productivity and fun.(1)

The Acer C720P-2600 Chromebook has a 32GB SSD that provides a fast boot time of less than seven seconds and quick resuming from sleep.(2) Compact at just 2 cm and 1.4 kg, the new C720P-2600 can be taken anywhere for exploring online, staying in touch, running Chrome apps and more. Customers can use the 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and integrated HD webcam for video chats as well as capturing video and photos to share online. The new Chromebook also features 2GB of DDR3 memory.

Acer Chromebooks utilize Chrome OS to give customers access to everything they need to be productive, stay in touch and be informed. Chrome OS is updated automatically, so it always has the latest features and multiple layers of security. The Acer C720P Chromebook users can have separate accounts to ensure their project, Gmail and other information is kept safe if the Chromebook is lost, stolen, or lent to a friend. This makes the Chromebook ideal for situations where the device will be used by multiple users, such as in educational settings and at home.
