Asus Chromebook Flip C302C

 

A well-designed Chromebook – but it will cost you

Slick design ; Crisp, colourful screen ; Reliable performance

Quite pricey for a Chromebook ; Limited connectivity ; Rubbish speakers

A highly portable and well-designed Chromebook, although the Flip C302 is more expensive than most of its rivals, Pixelbook aside.

Asus Chromebook Flip C100 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

This affordable Chromebook blows other cheap models out of the water with a metal clad body. It's also a 2-in-1 Chromebook that transforms into a tablet with just a flip.

Asus Chromebook Flip is a small laptop with big value

 

The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA is an affordable and compact 2-in-1 that works with Android apps, too.

The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA has a 360-degree hinge, a backlit keyboard, two USB-C ports, a sharp display and a posh all-aluminum build. Supports Google Play Android apps.

The USB-C ports don't support Thunderbolt 3.

With a hybrid hinge, touchscreen and support for Google Play apps, the Asus Chromebook Flip is a small Chromebook offering big value.

Asus Chromebook Flip C100 review: A Chromebook with hybrid chops

 

The Chrome OS Asus Flip C100 has a slow processor but very long battery life.

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 C523 goes big to 15 inches

 

Another stealth Chromebook listing from Asus looks like an embiggened C423.

Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA review

  (Rating Hidden)

Compact even by Chromebook standards, the Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA is also convertible with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display. It's incredibly light, too, but has only a bargain-bin level processor. Will a lack of power hold it back? Read our full...

ASUS Chromebook Flip review: small, solidly built, well-priced

 

The Chromebook Flip is notable for being one of the lightest Chrome OS laptops on the market. Its versatile and convertible design, solid build quality and affordable price also help set it apart from the pack. The smaller-than-average keyboard will be...

Surprisingly good build quality ; Versatile design ; Exceptionally lightweight ; Long battery life ; Aggressively priced

Keyboard cramped compared to larger Chromebooks ; Weaker processor than in competing models ; Display prone to wash-out

As I said from the outset, you'll be hard-pressed to find another Chromebook with this kind of convertible design. Lenovo had the similar N20p , for example, but it got lukewarm reviews and is no longer available on the company's site. That leaves a...

Asus Chromebook C523

 

With its sleek design and big 1080p touch screen, the 15.6-inch Asus Chromebook C523 is a unusual bargain: a budget-friendly big-screen Chromebook.

Bargain-basement price for a large-screen Chromebook. Sleek, part-aluminum design. 1080p panel looks crisp. Comfortable keyboard and touchpad.

Glossy screen coat is a glare magnet. Mediocre battery life. No keyboard lighting. Poor audio output.

Bottom Line: With its sleek design and big 1080p touch screen, the 15.6-inch Asus Chromebook C523 is a unusual bargain: a budget-friendly big-screen Chromebook.
