Touch Me

Acer C720P_touch_RtWhile Google’s Chromebooks have been an inexpensive way to fill a school with notebooks, one thing has been missing: touch. The latest Acer C720P Chromebook makes up for that in spades with an up to date teaching tool that’s just as good for finger painting as it is for sketching a map or underlining text in an essay. The C720P is built around a 11.6-inch screen that can show 1,366 by 768 images and respond to ten individual touch inputs. It’s powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U processor and comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage capacity on the system as well as 100GB of online space on GoogleDrive. It comes with USB ports and can connect to the school’s LAN via 802.11n WiFi. The school-ready Chromebook costs $300 with touch or $200 without.
