Amazon France Faux Pas: Unannounced Acer C7 Chromebook With Touchscreen Detailed

Acer

Thanks to Amazon, we now know that Acer is looking to introduce a C7 Chromebook that features an 11.6″ touchscreen display. This laptop, once officially announced, will be the second Chromebook to feature a touchscreen after Google’s own Chromebook Pixel. What’s great about the C7 with a touchscreen is that it appears Acer is pricing this one quite affordably, right around $400. Compared to Google’s $1300 offering, this is dirt cheap.

Other specs include an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a Lithium ion battery. So internally and externally, it’s almost the C720-2858, but with a touchscreen.

Who wants one?

    I want an HP 11 with the power and battery life of a C720. Add in touch screen and backlit keyboard and USB 3.0 ports, and a full-size HDMI port.
    lol it’s starting to sound like the Chromebook pixel.
    The problem with the new C720 touchscreen is that at $400 it’s getting closer to being the price of a higher quality Windows laptop.

  • Pat Leck

    I don’t have that type of money, but the product seems good http://68e1509c.theseforums.com

    I would love to see a C720 with a backlit keyboard and IPS screen. Touch screen I can take or leave.

  • forthelulz

    very similar in appearance to my bionic lapdock.

  • TC Infantino

    I would love to get this for my parents as a Christmas gift. This plus a ChromeCast, and they would be set.

  • Shasdo

    Remember, in France, $ = €
    So if the price is marked at 300€ then it will be 300$

    Even though 1$ = 0.75€ + 20%VAT = 0.9€ each time we get srewed.

  • Nick V

    Not that I would be using the Touchscreen all the time, but there are times where it would be nice to just touch it and move on. I think this may be my first Chromebook.

  • BroRob

    Hmmm $150 extra for touchscreen….. tough one!

    • Blake

      Not exactly right. Extra $200 for touchscreen (and larger flash drive) vs the $199 model. Or Extra $150 for touch screen (and again larger flash drive), but with half the RAM vs the $249 model. I wish we didn’t have to choose things like that.

        They should all have 4gb ram. I may buy the cheaper one just for that reason.

        • Blake

          They should but they don’t sadly. Only the $249 one has 4GB RAM. It’s really essential if you plan to have more than a small handful of tabs open.

          I’d really loved to have seen the Chromebook 11 w/ Haswell and 4GB of RAM.

          • s25

            Yeah that’s the one I ment. Very hard to track one down though. I heard rumors of a Toshiba one as well but haven’t seen anything on it yet

  • Andrew

    Clever headline there.

      Well I figured I should try harder given my misspelling of “Snapdragon” earlier this morning lol

      • CHRIS42060

        Darn I miss all the good typos.

        • Respen

          I’m going to assume that he said “Snatchdragon.”

          Terrifying.

  • JBartcaps

    Ehhh Celeron, wish they would’ve used Haswell

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      You say Celeron, I say Celery. Yum.

      • gabravo2005

        Peanut Butter or Ranch???

        • Andy Stetson

          Yes.

        • aye_winchell

          Peanut butter duh. I love ranch, on almost anything,however, ranch over peanut butter on celery? that’s blasphemy son.

          • Jonathan Williams

            I’m 50/50 when it comes to celery.

        • JBartcaps

          More like cream cheese

        • Randark

          Bleu Cheese
