Acer is expanding its line of Chromebooks with models featuring a range of features and prices — although they’re all reasonably inexpensive.

The company launched an Intel Celeron/Haswell powered Chromebook for $250 in October, and followed up with the introduction of a $199 model a month later, featuring half the RAM. Now it looks like the company is also going to launch a model with a higher-price tag, and premium features including a touchscreen.

While Acer hasn’t officially announced the new touchscreen model, we first heard about it a few months ago, and now Amazon France is taking pre-orders for 299 Euros. That’s about $400 US, but it’ll probably be cheaper if and when it comes to America.

The Acer C720 with a touchscreen has the same Intel Celeron 2955U Haswell processor as the other laptops in the lineup. But in addition to the touchscreen, it has 32GB of storage — twice the amount available on the cheaper models.

Each model has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, and while the $250 model has 4GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, the touchscreen model up for pre-order in France has 2GB of RAM — just like the $200 model.

It’s not clear if Acer plans to offer a higher-priced model with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a touchscreen, but it would be kind of silly not to.

  1. Hi Brad,

    There was word a while back about a touch screen model with 8gb of Ram. What’s your personal take on how likely that is to come out within the next six months?
