The updated ASUS Chromebook Flip C101 is now available for pre-order from both ASUS directly as well as Amazon. The 10.1″ WXGA Rockchip powered Chromebook is only $299, a great price point for a budget but well appointed Chrome OS device.
The display on the Chromebook Flip C101 renders at 1280 x 800 and is powered by the Rockchip 3399 OP1 processor and Mali-T860MP4 graphics processor. It has 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of storage. That storage can be expanded thanks to the MicroSD card slot but given that Chrome OS leverages Google Drive for storage, that may not be a big deal.
The Chromebook Flip C101 has the following ports built-in:
- 1x Headphone-out & Audio-in Combo Jack
- 1x USB 2.0
- 2x USB3.1 Type C (Gen 1)
- 1x Headphone-out & Audio-in Combo Jack;1x USB 2.0;2x USB3.1 Type C (Gen 1)
- 1x Micro SD Card Reader
The battery life is pegged to be around 9 hours for the updated C101 and it is 10.4″ x 7.2″ x 0.6″ and weights about 2 lbs.
Overall, the C101 isn’t going to set the world alight with knock-out specs. What it will do however is provide a great computing experience for $300.
