After the success of Asus Chromebook C201, soon to hit the market is its 13 inch C301 Chromebook with 1080p Full HD display. Considering Asus’s background in investing quite a bit in Chromebook categories, people look forward to its new innovation in its fairly wide product range.
The new Asus Chromebook C301 with Google’s Chrome OS boasts to have 16GB storage, 4GB RAM, built on Intel Celeron N3160 quad-core processor. The physical dimensions are expected to be 32.9cms in width, around 2.2 cms in height and 23 cms in depth. The Chromebook C301 weighs around 2.98 lbs.
Asus website claims the new C301 series to have 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.2 and TPM security that protects your most sensitive data. The product is available in silver metal color with an initial price of $279.
Asus seems to be ready to make the formal announcement of the introduction of Chromebook C301 early next week.
4 GB RAM, HD screen and a nice design, this is an attractive package for the traditional Chromebook user. However, with Android apps coming to Chrome OS, there is going to be a new wave of users picking up their first Chromebook. We are yet to find out what these users (Android fans, but Chromebook newbies) are looking for in a Chromebook. Will they prefer Chromebooks with touchscreen? If yes, Asus might want to consider a touchscreen variant of this Chromebook.
