Additional key specs include a 32GB SSD, integrated HD webcam, 2GB of DDR3 memory, fast boot time of less than 7 seconds, quick resume from sleep, WiFi, HDMI port, as well USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports.



The Acer C720P Chromebook - which measures only 0.78-inches and weighs 2.98 pounds - also offers up to 100GB of free Google Drive storage for the first two years after purchase, along with 12 free Gogo Inflight passes to allow users to stay online even while on a flight.
