Our good friends at Laptop Mag just did a nice write up on Acer’s latest Chromebook, the C720 Core i3. Not exactly a MacBook Air, but at $349 ($329 on Amazon) and 2.8 pounds, we think this 11.6-inch Chromebook is an exciting little fella worth looking at, especially if you are new to the Chromebook bandwagon. Dark-gray, with brushed aluminum finish, it’s quite a beauty amongst its competitions. Read the full review here.
Feel like dropping $2300 on the “world’s thinnest and lightest mobile workstation”? Then check out the MSI W60. Not only it’s perfectly slim and beautiful, it is also a powerful workhorse sporting the latest Intel Core i7 and the Quadro K2100M graphics card. What’s more you is get a 3K screen blasting 2880×1620 true-to-life pixels, and if that’s not enough you could extend it to up to two external monitors via its HDMI and Thunderbolt/Mini Display ports. Definitely worth a look but you may want to double check on their “thinnest and lightest” claim.
