Asus seems to have a new Chromebook on the way. According to Chrome OS news site Chrome Unboxed, a listing for a previously unannounced model, the ASUS C302CA, briefly went up on Newegg yesterday, leaking the full specs and details about Asus' latest Chrome OS hardware. 

According to the now-removed Newegg listing, the C302CA offers a 12.5-inch, 1080p touchscreen that can flip around to use the device as a 2-in-1 convertible tablet, and runs off a 2.2 GHz Intel Core m3 processor. The C302CA also seems to be joining the ranks of many new computers in eschewing legacy USB 3.0 ports for a full conversion to USB-C, sporting two USB-C ports (which presumably also are used to charge the device) along with a microSD card slot. The specific SKU leaked on Newegg offered 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for $499, but it's unclear at this time whether that's the only configuration that Asus will be offering for the new model.

Newegg has already removed the listing for the C302CA, but with CES right around the corner, it's hard to imagine we'll be waiting long for an official announcement.
