This new Chrome OS-powered portable comes about a month after the smaller C200 and features the new Intel Bay Trail-M N2830 processor. It can be purchased from various online stores starting at only $249 USD.

The Asus Chromebook C200 and C300 have both been announced in early May after a few months spent in the rumor mill. Unfortunately, the C300 arrives a few weeks after the 11.6-inch C200, but has about the same features and retails starting at $249 USD, same as its smaller sibling.

These are the technical specs of the Asus C300 Chromebook:

  • Processor: dual-core 2.42 GHz Intel Bay Trail-M N2830

The new Asus C300 Chromebook features a large touchpad with support for multi-finger gestures, a full-size seamless chiclet keyboard, as well as "a hidden screen hinge that gives it a sleek look." It is currently listed by ExcaliberPC and B&H for $249 USD, Amazon for $299 USD, and Staples, which charges $257 USD for a unit.
