Acer’s C720 Chromebook
Details: Hiawatha Bray says the Acer’s C720 is unlike a typical laptop, especially because of its speed. One reason for the Chromebook’s quickness is its use of a Google operating system, instead of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows.
There’s also a new “entry-level” model called the Chromebook C720-2848 that’s nearly identical to the C270. That laptop costs $199.
