ASUS did not disappoint us.The news of Chromebook Flip C101, the real Flip 2, has been around for a while now. The price was the last piece of information that we all have been waiting for. At $299, Flip 2 seems to be an affordable device for a new Chromebook user who wants to try out Chrome OS, complete with Android apps. The device is now available for pre-oder from both ASUS store and Amazon.
Chromebook Flip C101
After the success of Chromebook Flip 1, ASUS followed up with a comparatively premium device, Flip C302. This was a higher spec, better hardware device. The Flip C101 was leaked after that, and eventually showed up in the UK. Around the same time, we got to see a hands-on video of the device as well.
According to the ASUS store and Amazon listings, the device will start shipping in four days from today. It might take a while before the reviews start showing up on all the tech blogs, but based on the information we have, this is a worthy successor to the Flip 1. We shall see more of this guy soon around us!
