Asus made a tablet running on Chrome OS for the first time, and it's made with students in mind. The Chromebook Tablet CT100 features a 9.7-inch touchscreen and should be protected from drops with a rubberized chassis and tempered glass display.
Chrome OS is relatively new to tablets, and it has been used mainly in classrooms where it dominated US sales in recent years. The latest Asus board gives schools another option for devices.
Asus & # 39; The Chromebook Tablet is powered by a hexagonal OP1 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It has a USB-C port, and Asus claims that the tablet has "a full school day" with battery life ̵
For those who want both a laptop and a tablet, Asus also renews its 2-in-1 Chromebook. The new Chromebook Flip C214 keeps its predecessor's 11.6-inch HD display and 360-degree hinge, but it shifts its world-friendly camera away from the hinge, making it harder to hide. Its basic model is powered by an Intel N4000 Celeron processor and has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There are two USB-C ports and one audio connector and stylus support.
Asus also updates two traditional clamshell Chromebooks that are mainly characterized by their size. The 11.6-inch Chromebook C204 and 14-inch Chromebook C403 feature thick rubber bumpers designed to absorb shocks and keyboards that resist students trying to pick out the keys. Both have Intel Celeron dual-core processors, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and USB-A and USB-C ports. Asus claims a full-day battery life on a single charge for the 11.6 model, but only 11 hours for the 14-inch model (probably because of the larger screen that drains the battery faster). The 11.6-inch has also been slimmed a little, so it's not as big as its predecessor.
If any of these devices are damaged despite the built-in protection, Asus has made it easy to access internal components, with motherboards that can be removed in three steps. Rates and availability are not announced yet.
