This Discounted Chromebook is More Powerful Than You'd Expect

2015 may end up being the year of the Chromebook, especially if more of them come with specs like this Acer C720.

$320 gets you an Intel Core i3 processor with Intel HD 4400 graphics, 4GB of RAM, and a 32GB (replaceable) SSD. That's not very impressive by traditional notebook standards, but for a Chromebook, it's basically a supercomputer.

You might not think you need all that power for a computer that's basically just running a web browser, but a lot of web apps are more processor-intensive than you'd expect, and Google is even starting to port over some native Android apps as well. [Acer C720 with Core i3, $320]
