After reading the specifications, the first thing which may not look well to you will be the storage, it’s just 16GB. But its SSD so that would be having a faster data transfer speed. Chromebook also comes with a lot of free storage on Google Drive and since we can’t install any other software (like in Windows or Mac) so we don’t need much storage.

Chromebooks are one of the safest laptops since Google provides a tight security to its cloud based storage. All the data will always be there on the cloud storage so there are no chances of getting virus. This is how Google adds security to these Chromebooks.

The Acer C720 is also very light weight and looks impressive at design point of view. If you’re looking for a good looking faster laptop and you want to use it for productivity and internet access then this one is a perfect option.
