Asus has added a new 13 inch Chromebook to its line of laptops featuring Google’s Chrome operating system.

The new Asus C301 Chromebook features 4GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, and an Intel Celeron N3160 quad-core processor. It’s listed on the Asus Store website as “coming soon” for $279.

Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and an SD card reader. It has an 48 Wh battery and an HD camera.

The Asus C301 Chromebook measures 13″ x 9″ x 0.9″ and weighs about 3 pounds.

Priced at $279, this will be one of the most expensive Chromebooks to date from Asus. But it’s also one of the first to feature 4GB of RAM and a full HD display.

I suspect we’ll learn more about the company’s Chromebook plans for 2016 at the Computex trade show in Taiwan next week.
