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

  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac2 dual-band, Bluetooth 4.0, 1XUSB 2.0, 1XUSB 3.0, HDMI 1.4
  • Operating system: Chrome OS
  • Weight/Dimensions: 3.1 pounds and 13X9.1X0.8~0.9 inches

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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
