10-point touch adds multitouch, Windows 8-like gestures to line

Acer America today announced the availability of its first touchscreen Chromebook, the new Acer C720P -- a new model in the Acer C720 Chromebook line that debuted last month. The new C720P provides the benefits of touch on the device's 11.6-inch HD LED back-lit display to take advantage of the Chrome interface.

The Acer C720P's touch capabilities are implemented on the 11.6-inch ComfyView HD display that has a 1366x768 resolution. Like the rest of the new C720 line, the new C720P touchscreen model is powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U processor based on the Intel Haswell micro-architecture with an attendant increase in battery life -- the company claims that the shift will allow users to run for up to 7.5 hours between charges.

The Acer C720P will be available in several configurations in early December at Amazon, Best Buy and the Acer Store for a suggested retail price of $300 in the United States.
