People are pretty happy with the Acer C720 Chromebooks; for the money, they offer a great value and there are several models. The C720 is no longer the best Chromebook according to The Wirecutter, which is a great resource to find great products. The Dell Chromebook 11 wins out on battery life, display, keyboard and other factors. That’s OK, Acer could surprise us all and launch a Chrome OS tablet later this month.
We discuss those topics as well as explain how to register for Google I/O and share the latest apps for your Chromecast on this week’s podcast.
