Acer C720 Chromebook now available from Google Play Store in 4 new countries

acer-ac700

The Acer C720 happens to be one of the most popular Chromebooks out there. In fact, it continues to be Amazon’s best-selling laptop (beating even the big laptop manufacturers). We know it can be hard for Chromies outside the USA to get a hold of one, though.

Amazon doesn’t always have it in stock (if they even have it in your country) and Chromebooks are a bit rare to find at other retailers. If you have been looking to get an Acer C720 Chromebook, you will be glad that the Google Play Store is now selling it at 4 new countries!

Where can I buy the Acer C720 Chromebook?

  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

People in the listed countries can now head to their respective Google Play Stores and purchase the Acer C720. It’s also important to know this is the lower-end Acer C720. This version is more affordable, but offers lesser specs compared to the $250 version.

    Huh? Isn’t the regular C720 (not the C720P) going for $199 in the US?

    Chromebooks are a great choice for users that spend most of their time in a browser and want a device that starts up fast and is easy to use.

    If you’re considering Chromebooks but also need access to Windows applications you can look at solutions like Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to securely connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

    AccessNow does not require any client to be installed on the Chromebook, as you only need the HTML5-compatible browser.

    For an online, interactive demo, open your Chrome browser and visit:

    Still does not appear in Play Store yet for Canada. Looks like the rumour is false.
