Here is a little something different.
A thin and light laptop on Coolsmartphone. What’s going on? Am I reading the correct site do I need an eye test?
Whoa there before you run off to Optical Express, relax because even though this is a laptop it share a lot of ideas from the world of Android and is therefore closer to our smartphone loving hearts than we may initially think.
What we have here is essentially a Chrome based browser with additional extras all jammed into a laptop body with some shiny chips and connectivity options all wrapped up in a £199.99 bundle. I introduce you to the Chromebook C720 from Acer
I have set my self a challenge to try and use this device as my main device for what I would be normally doing on my Nexus 7 for the next week or so, I am also going to try and not use my Macbook Pro at all if I can. I intend to write the review on the device on it as well.
This will mean that I have to be a little bit more organized than usual with my workload than usual so that will be fun. In the mean time sit back and relax while you have a look at the unboxing.
