ASUS announced their Chromebook Flip a couple months ago, but only today is the laptop finally available for purchase. There have been a few sales here and there, but no reliable stock. Starting today however you’ll be able to pick up this machine from ASUS’ own store, Amazon, and Newegg.
The Chromebook Flip C100 is a smaller Chromebook than we’re used to with it’s 10.1″ touch screen. The machine weighs only a mere 2lbs and is only 0.6 inches thick. The battery life claims up to 9 hours on a single charge as well. Under the hood the machine has a Rockchip 3288-C processor paired with 2GB or 4GB of RAM. While that processor isn’t going to provide power for intensive use, it will be just fine for general web browsing and light tasks.
The ASUS Chromebook Flip has a completely aluminum body which has the ability to flip the screen around completely to use the device as a tablet. This is the same feature as seen on many Lenovo devices. There are even some built in Chrome OS features that help make the transition even more flawless.
This machine is available for $249 for the 2GB model and $299 for the 4GB model. Both units have a 16GB SSD on board for storage. Keep in mind, the Chromebook Flip isn’t really meant to replace your laptop, but to be a solid option for those constantly on the go. Will you be picking one up?
