Right away with the graphics tests the HD Graphics performance on the Celeron 2955U were rather appealing for this $200 Chromebook. The Acer C720 performance was right behind the Intel Core i5 2520M "Sandy Bridge" laptop and not too much further behind the Core i3 3217U "Ivy Bridge" ultrabook.

The Haswell HD Graphics performance can also be made easily better by upgrading to Mesa 10.0 stable or Mesa 10.1-devel over Mesa 9.2.1 with what's found in Ubuntu 13.10. Such benchmarks are forthcoming on Phoronix.

The Acer C720 $200 Chromebook can handle running Xonotic with high quality settings close to 60 FPS on the 11-inch device.
