Google unveiled the first Rockchip-powered laptops loaded with Chrome OS back in March when both the Haier Chromebook 11 and Hisense Chromebook became available for pre-order for less than $150 USD. Now the time has come for a big name in the industry to launch such a Chromebook - the Asus C201 can be finally pre-ordered for as little as $169 USD.

The Asus C201 Chromebook model now available for pre-order starting at less than $170 USD comes with the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Rockchip 3288-C SoC with Mali-T674 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB eMMC internal storage
  • Display: 11.6-inch HD display with 1,366X768 pixels
  • Camera: VGA webcam
  • Connectivity: none specified, most likely USB and HDMI as similar devices
  • Autonomy: up to 13 hours
  • Color: navy blue

Various online stores also list a C201 model with 4 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage starting around $200 USD. While the 2 GB/16 GB and 4 GB/16 GB models feature a standard LCD screen, the more powerful 4 GB/32 GB variant is expected to feature a touchscreen display. We will probably hear more about the Asus C201 as large online retailers begin to receive orders and add all the details to the product pages.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
