Computex Taipei 2017 is proving to be interesting for Chromebooks fans. ASUS Chromebook Flip C101, the device rumored to be the real successor to the successful Chromebook Flip, has shown up at the ASUS stall at Computex.
Like its predecessor, Flip C101 also comes with a full metal body, and it weighs 900 grams. ASUS is calling this world’s thinnest and lightest flip 10-inch Chromebook.
The Flip 2 comes with hexa-core Rockchip RK3399, an upgrade from quad RK3288 on the Flip 1. 2 GB and 4 GB RAM variants will be available. For storage, there will be 16 GB and 32 GB options available.
There are two USB Type C ports available, which is really nice. 1280 x 800 touchscreen may not satisfy you if you are into retina type displays. However, if they price this Chromebook around the affordable range like Flip 1, I am sure there will be many takers.
Here is a hands-on video:
Support for Google Play store is promised “soon”.
