Asus Chromebook Flip review


A flipping premium Chromebook for almost nothing

Fully metal construction ; Excessive battery life ; Thoughtful touch controls

Occasional crashes ; Large screen bezels ; Might be too tiny for some

Scores in depth: Chromebooks have come along way from their cheap, plasticky days. In fact, most modern models are attractive in their own right. The Samsung Chromebook 2 introduced a leatherette finish, and who could forget the aluminum-clad...

Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA review


Asus' new Chromebook has a touchscreen, long battery life and beautiful design. Read our Chromebook Flip C100PA review to see whether it's as good in real life as it seems on paper.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive convertible that doesn’t feel cheap, then the C100PA should go to the top of your list. In Chromebook terms it’s one of the best we’ve used, but only if you’re happy with a small screen. Road warriors will...

Asus Chromebook Flip C100 review


The big pitch for Chromebooks and other devices running Google's Chrome OS was that these machines could do most of what you wanted from a computer at a very budget-friendly price.

The inexpensive Asus Chromebook Flip C100 has an aluminum body, touchscreen, hybrid hinge, and more than a dozen hours of battery life.

Touchscreen response could be better, and the Rockchip CPU performs slowly in some tests. The lowest-end Windows PCs can cost even less.

A Chromebook that manages to add hybrid features without driving up the price, the Asus Flip C100 trades speed for long battery life.

Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02)


The Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) blends the best elements from other designs into a single Chrome-based laptop with a slick, convertible form factor, fast performance, all-day battery life, and an affordable price.

Rockchip RK3288C processor provides impressive performance. Long battery life in testing. Aluminum construction and convertible design. Touch screen.

Display resolution is lower than that of most other chromebooks.

Conclusion Ultimately, as I've said before, the Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) is like the Google Chromebook Pixel in miniature, and is also a lot less expensive. From the aluminum construction to the convertible design, from the Rockchip-powered...

Asus Chromebook Flip review


Spending between $200 and $300 on a Chromebook usually gets you a hunk of plastic that's decent enough at running a web browser, editing Google Docs, watching Netflix, and playing Spotify. Asus is...

Incredible build quality for the price ; Flipping the screen is useful ; Strong battery life

Cramped keyboard ; Huge bezel ; Average performance

Asus Chromebook Flip


Of late, we've seen an increasing number of low-cost computers that offer a relatively full-featured Windows experience for the same or less than many Chromebooks. These include the $199 HP Stream 11 laptop, the $179 Intel Compute Stick and others. To...

Asus Chromebook Flip


A few months ago, I sold my iPad. But lately, I've been jonesing for a tablet -- something I can use while I'm in the kitchen, or lying on the couch. At the same time, though, I'm not sure if I want to clutter my apartment with yet another gadget....

Asus Chromebook Flip Review


Sleek multimode design; Sharp and accurate touch-screen display; Long battery life

Below-average performance; Cramped keyboard

The $249 Asus Chromebook Flip offers a flexible design, a vibrant touch screen and long battery life, making it a very good laptop-tablet combo.

Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA-DB01 Convertible Review


Luxury for less than $300. The C100PA Chromebook Flip is the latest model to borrow the 360-degree hinge design from Lenovo's Yoga series. But with sleek aluminum construction, a comfortable keyboard, and a remarkably affordable price point, there's a...

Sleek aluminum build which somewhat resembles that of a high-end Ultrabook, Metal casing is sturdier than the typical plastic, Lightweight and very portable, Tablet/notebook transitions are quick and seamless, IPS screen with excellent viewing angles...

CPU performance is fairly mediocre, Lack of USB 3.0, Slightly shrunken keyboard with high actuation force requires some adjustment, Middling 1280x800 screen resolution, Parts replacements are limited to battery and speakers

There’s a whole lot to like about Asus’ latest Chromebook contender. The C100PA Chromebook Flip combines a number of tantalizing features to produce a package which seems quite generous given the low asking price of just $249. For starters, you’ll get...

ASUS ChromeBook Flip Review : tiny hero, shiny and chrome


Witness this - a web-browser notebook that flips back into a tablet, made with metal, sporting a touchscreen, that won't break your bank. That's what ASUS has up for grabs with the ASUS Chromebook Flip (C100) . This is like the first in a line of...

This Chromebook is pretty gosh-darned nice. ASUS did the right thing giving it a name that allows it to stand alone as a unique brand in and of itself – the Chromebook Flip. First of its name. At either $250 or $300, depending on RAM (as outlined...
