The Asus Chromebook Flip is a convertible notebook with a 10.1 inch touchscreen display which can you can push back 360 degrees to hold the system like a tablet. We’ve seen a lot of convertibles of this type over the past few years, but the Chromebook Flip is one of the smallest, and one of the few to run Google’s Chrome operating system rather than Windows.
Asus unveiled the Chromebook Flip a few months ago and some stores started taking orders a few weeks ago. Now Asus has officially launched the Chromebook Flip and it’s available from the Asus Store (and Amazon) for $249 and up.
The Chromebook Flip features a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a Rockchip RK3288 ARM Cortex-A17 processor, 802.11ac WiFi, two USB 2.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, and a microSD card slot. It features a 31 Whr battery for up to 9 hours of run time.
The convertible notebook measures about 0.6 inches thick and weighs about 2 pounds.
Asus offers models with 2GB or 4GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage.
