The C720 boasts an Intel Celeron 2955U CPU running at 1.40 GHz. Using the Haswell micro-architecture, this 64-bit CPU features two cores and 2 MB of cache.

Acer has coupled it with 2 GB of DDR3L SDRAM, and it also features Intel HD Graphics running at a 200 MHz base frequency and 1 GHz max dynamic frequency - all of which is more than enough processing power for anything the Chromebook is designed to do.

If any of this sounds enticing, it's definitely worth checking out, especially if you're a commuter (or a student).
