"Chrome OS aficionados have long pined for a Haswell processor to drive one of their Chromebooks, imbuing the line with the longevity they've been missing out on. That wait has come to an end. Launched this morning, and previewed at IDF, the Acer C720 Chromebook, promises 8.5 hours of battery life, in a new, thinner body, and with an all-new, Haswell-based Intel Celeron 2955U processor inside. The 1.4GHz dual-core CPU will boost performance over the 1.1GHz Sandy Bridge-based Celeron that preceded it, while cutting power consumption (its battery life is rated at a respectable 8.5 hours)."
