Encapsulated in a compact form factor, the notebook also features an anti-glare display, making it ideal for families and students who want a Chromebook that can be enjoyed in a range of settings, even outdoors in sunlight.
The new Acer C720 Chromebook builds on the popular Acer C710 Chromebook, which was lauded for its performance and integration of Google's Chrome operating system in key western markets earlier this year.
It meets the needs of students, families, anyone on a budget, and the growing number of consumers who enjoy the Google ecosystem for school, work and entertainment, said the company.
"The Acer C720 is a significant step forward for our highly-acclaimed Acer Chromebook line, as it delivers speedy performance, quick boot times, a matte anti-glare display and a slimmer design that is portable enough for anywhere use," said S. Rajendran, CMO, Acer India.
"These key advances allow families and students to continue collaborating, learning and playing in exciting ways, all while staying secure since Chrome OS includes multiple layers of protection from online threats."
Consumers can begin their online fun, research and social networking quickly with the Acer C720 Chromebook. It boots up in less than 7 seconds and resumes nearly instantly from sleep mode.
The new Chromebook is powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U processor based on the Intel Haswell micro-architecture, so it delivers a noticeable boost in both performance and battery life.
The battery keeps consumers productive for up to 8.5 hours, ideal for all day productivity and fun.
Consumers can power through web pages and docs, and will also enjoy fluid HD video and apps with the support of up to 2GB of DDR3 memory.
Plus, the Acer C720 quickly connects to hotspots and wireless networks via 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi.
