Asus

Asus’ Chromebook Flip is a good device limited by a 10-inch screen. Now, Asus might be giving us an equally good device but with more local storage and a larger display. B&H lists Asus’ C301SA as coming with Intel's Celeron N3160 quad-core Braswell processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 1080p, 13.3-inch display. The device is expected to next month for only $299.

We’ll be satisfied if Asus can replicate the Chromebook Flip’s quality but with a bigger screen, especially at this price. While the additional storage space is notable, it’s not much to harp on because aren't you keeping everything in Google Docs anyway? Still, most Chromebooks ship with 16GB. We’re looking forward to you, C301SA.
