Acer Chromebook C720 Philippines, Out Now via Smart Bro Plan 999

I woke up this morning to this really cool question from TP Friend Charlie Canson about the availability of the very popular Acer Chromebook C720 in the Philippines.

If it's your first time to hear about it (I hope not), a Chromebook is basically a laptop or a netbook running Google's Chrome operating system in lieu of Microsoft Windows. These devices are designed to let you connect to the internet and access cloud-based applications and services. They're not really powerhouse machines - so they might not support heavy 3D gaming and high-level video editing - but they should be good enough for browsing the web, creating Word documents, or preparing Excel sheets, among other light tasks.

According to Smart, "Unlike conventional laptops, Chromebooks uses Google’s very own Chrome OS, which promises instant connection to the Internet from boot-up to welcome screen in less than 8 seconds. And measuring only 19.35 millimeters at its thickest point, the Chromebook C720 is one of the thinnest and lightest notebooks around that doesn’t scrimp on features: it comes with an 11.6-inch screen [1366 x 768 pixels resolution] and two USB ports on the side, one of which is already a USB 3.0 port that facilitates faster file transfers."

The entire notebook is powered by a 1.4 GHz Dual Core Intel Haswell Celeron ultra-low-voltage processor, which gives it a long battery life of as much as 8.5 hours on a single charge for average use. This chipset is complemented by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of SSD.

All these features made the Chromebook C720 the best-rated Chromebook to date, receiving the highest ratings from reputable tech review websites such as The Verge (7.8 score), PC Magazine (4 stars) and Laptop Magazine (3.5 stars), as well as a 4.5-star rating in top e-Commerce site Amazon.
