ASUS Chromebook Flip C302CA Is Now Official

Here is a Chromebook that we all have been excited for, thanks to all the leaks, rumors and discussions. Finally, the ASUS C302CA is official and available.

ASUS is calling it “Flip C302CA”, and not Flip 2 as I was hoping for. May be there is another actual “Flip 2” that they are working on? Are they planning to expand the “Flip” lineup because of the first Flip’s success? If that’s the case, we might see an more affordable Flip soon.

We are yet to see any detailed reviews, but on paper, and on press shots, this Chromebook looks really impressive. Here are the official specs:

Flip C302CA is powered by the 6th generation Intel® Core™ m3, m7 or Pentium® processors based on the model you pick up.

Being very 2017ish, the Chromebook comes with only USB Type C ports. Another nice touch is the 4 GB RAM on the base model instead of 2 GB that we are used to on Chromebooks.

The 4 GB version is priced at $499 and there is no word yet on the pricing for 8 GB model. This Chromebook is not yet available on Amazon, and the Best Buy page still shows “The item is no longer available”

I am not a fan of touch screen laptops (not yet, that is) or convertibles. However, the design looks pretty and I would totally love to give this a try, if I can my hands on one soon.

So, who’s buying one?

    Super excited about this new flip. I have the original flip and while nice, it is much to small (10.1″ screen) for my tastes. The build quality is outstanding, however.

    I’m also thrilled to see another device offering 8GB of RAM. I have the Chromebook Pixel with 8GB of RAM and don’t think I could use anything else.

    My only disappointment is the price. The original Flip was pretty affordable. $499+ for the base model is a big jump.
