The granite gray C720-2420 11.6" Chromebook from Acer features the innovative Google Chrome OS operating system. Google Chrome OS is a Linux-based operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications. This Acer Chromebook combines the aspects of a pure cloud client with the hardware of a traditional laptop, which puts it in its very own class of portable notebook computers.
Paying homage to Google Chrome's minimalist appearance, this Acer Chromebook has a simple and clean look with a granite gray finish. The Chrome OS keyboard features Chrome OS Function keys, which can directly control the browser, volume and screen brightness. The touchpad features click-anywhere functionality and supports one-finger touch to left-click, two-finger touch to right-click, and two-finger scrolling.
The 11.6" widescreen display is backlit with LED lamps for better image quality and energy efficiency. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio as well as a 1366 x 768 native resolution, thanks to the integrated Intel HD Graphics. The screen also has an antiglare finish so the Chromebook can be used in brightly-lit environments.
The system is powered by a dual-core 1.4 GHz Intel Celeron 2955U processor. It also has 2GB of DDR3L RAM, a 32GB solid state drive, a Secure Digital media card reader, 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, an integrated webcam and microphone as well as built-in stereo speakers. Chrome OS is the installed operating system.
