As 90 percent of people move between multiple screens every day, many with touch capabilities, we’ve become accustomed to tapping, swiping and zooming to get things done. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the touchscreen on the Chromebook Pixel, and over the past year we’ve made optimizations to Chrome OS to make touch actions simple and intuitive — our customers find themselves reaching out to tap an OK button, scroll through a page or zoom into Google Maps.
As part of this immersive, tactile world, Acer has announced the new Acer C720P Chromebook with a multi-touch screen, adding the second touch-enabled Chromebook to the lineup. Acer’s Chromebooks are consistent best-sellers on Amazon, and this new device will help more users experience the best of the tactile web for just $299.
The Acer C720P is available for preorder now at Amazon, and the device will hit store shelves in the U.S. and additional countries from this week onwards.
