ASUS has debuted a new Chromebook model this week, the Chromebook Flip C100. This is actually a convertible laptop, that integrates a 10 inch WXGA display with an IPS panel and a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. It offers support for up to 10 finger touch at the same time and also lets you flip the screen and use this as a tablet.


The body of the device weighs under 0.90 kg and it measures 15.45 mm, which by convertible standards is quite compact. ASUS C100 is supposed to offer 9 hours of battery life and it comes with a Rockchip 3288-C quad core processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz, as well as 2 or 4 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.1, a HD camera and USB 2.0 ports.

It also has a micro HDMI port and integrated SD card reader. There are two versions of the ASUS C100, one with 2 GB of RAM, priced at $249 and one with 4 GB of RAM, priced at $299. These prices sound pretty good in my book and the keyboard looks very comfy and sports big keys, from the looks of it.
