Acer’s first touchscreen Chromebook arrives next month for $299

If you’d rather get hands-on with your Chromebook work sessions, Acer is looking to lend a hand. The company has outed the C720P: its first touchscreen Chromebook. The Google-fied laptop sports an 11.6-inch HD LED display with 1,366 x 768 resolution alongside an Intel Celeron 2955U processor, 32GB SSD and 2GB DDR3 RAM.

Weighing in at only 2.98 pounds and measuring 0.78 inch thick, the C720P claims up to 7.5 hours of battery life — an hour less than its Haswell-powered sibling, the C720. There’s USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports for connecting extras and two years worth of 100GB Google Drive space is include for extra storage. Sound too good to pass up? Well, you’ll be able to snag one in early Decemeber for $299 from Amazon, Best Buy and the Acer store.
