The benchmarking results shared by OMG Chrome looks really nice. Take a look!:

This Chromebook seems to be performing a lot better than all the other Chromebooks listed for comparison. The hardware and the design are still very similar to Acer’s C720s, may be a slightly better as the unboxing video states.

Did anyone try this one yet?

  1. Specs in story don’t match device shown. Should be 11 inch, and one would hope, somewhat less than 6.6 lbs! Actually, that last spec is enough to turn me off the 15 inch versions, if it is accurate. Nice anti-glare screen. Sick startup time!

    1. Sorry, I had the wrong image!

      1. Please do a sanity check before posting. The specs immediately strike as bogus, dimensions are clearly for the box, weight is even more than the whole box should be.

        A quick Google check reveals this is an 11.6″ notebook weighing at 1.3kg:
