The Chrome Show: A less-expensive touchscreen Chromebook is on the way

Looks like there indeed is a touchscreen Chromebook(s goog) joining the Pixel and it won’t cost nearly as much. A variant of the Acer C720 appeared on Amazon’s site in France and it includes the touchable web. We also cover what’s new in the latest beta version of Chrome OS and offer up a Powerwash tip for when there’s no Powerwash option showing on your Chromebook or Chromebox.
