ASUS today launched the Chromebook Flip C100 convertible laptop. The new 10-inch Chromebook is a sleek new machine weighing in at under 2 pounds and is only 0.6-inches thick. Supporting up to 10 finger-input simultaneously on the IPS display, you're able to flip the screen around to use the C100 comfortably as a tablet.
There's up to 9 hours of battery on offer, which isn't bad when you factor in weight and size, as well as components the C100 has inside. Running Google's Chrome OS, the ASUS C100 features a Rockchip 3288-C quad-core 1.8GHz CPU, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.1, a HD camera, as well as two USB 2.0 ports, micro HDMI and integrated SD card reader.
Priced at just $249 or $299 (depending on configuration), it's an affordable option for those seeking a sleek new machine, powered by Google's computing platform. As noted already, ASUS has made the laptop available on the company's online store, as well as Newegg.com and Amazon.com.
