Want a cheap Chromebook that can run Android apps, but don’t care whether it has a touchscreen or not? Right now there aren’t any non-touch Chromebooks capable of running Android apps, but later this year Google plans to roll out support to dozens of Chrome OS devices… including the Asus C201 Chromebook.
And right now you can pick one up from Amazon for $159.
For the past few months I’ve been using a sample Chromebook Flip that Asus loaned me, and I’ve been pretty impressed with its performance. The Flip and the C201 have the same processor, memory, and other features as the Asus C201… the key difference is that the Flip has a convertible touchscreen display and costs more money.
