Looking at the trade reviews and the early user experience, we believe that the ASUS Chromebook Flip might just be the most welcomed device on the market in the history of technology.
Although it’s not the perfect laptop and a device for every user out there, not even the cheapest, the $279 laptop is one of the most expected and rumoured Chromebooks, as well as the most appreciated. The Asus Chromebook Flip has received a lot of positive reviews until now, and users can’t seem to get enough of it. But this didn’t came as a surprise for any of the people that know the Chromebook industry. Given that all the other Chromebooks are pretty similar, the Asus Chromebook Flip brought a whole package of renewals and attractive features that gave everyone in the market a fresh overview on these devices.
About The ASUS Chromebook Flip C100PA
Besides its 360 degree convertible touch display, that can be folded back for a more tablet like experience, it is also has the smallest display – 10.1 inches. The IPS display is also a big up considering the TN panels that competitor companies use in their Chromebooks.
The Chromebook Flip also has a solid aluminium body and a tight construction which places it on the same quality standard as notebooks that are sold with a price way bigger than this. Powered by a Rockchip RK3288 1.8GHz quad-core processor and holding 4 GB of RAM it is strong enough to handle any tasks that users might perform on it, even steady playback of HD videos.
On the downside, there are a few things that could be improved in the near future, such as the range of the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi chip which doesn’t exist at this point. Also, some more work on its stability and performance should also do the trick. On the bright side, Google has already begun fixing existent problems and the updates you receive weekly should contain the solution.
