The Asus C200 Chromebook is expected to hit the streets in May for $250. It’s already available for pre-order from some stores, even though Asus has yet to officially acknowledge the Chrome OS laptop.
But that hasn’t stopped one company from posting pictures, benchmark results and initial impressions of the 11.6 inch Chromebook.
Update: Not surprisingly, Promevo has been asked to remove their article… but it’ll apparently be back on May 6th, 2014. That’s as good an indication as any that Asus plans to launch its Chromebooks in May.
The Asus C200 Chromebook features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N2830 Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It has HDMI output, a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port, and an SD card slot.
Asus is also expected to offer a 13.3 inch C300 Chromebook with more memory and storage and a higher price tag.
That’s not quite as high a score as the 9500 to 10000 points you get with a Celeron 2955U-powered device like the Asus Chromebox or Acer C270p Chromebook. But it’s better than the 5162 Google Octane score I got when I tested the HP Chromebook 11 with a Samsung Exynos 5 dual-core CPU.
