Chrome OS-powered notebooks are slowly moving up from the low-end sector of the market all the way up, and the Asus C301 is a perfect example. Although not a high-end portable, this Chromebook is one of the few to offer 64 GB eMMC internal storage. However, most of the other specs are also out of the low-end area.

The Asus C301 Chromebook that can be pre-ordered for $299.99 USD is powered by a quad-core Intel Celeron N3160 processor, next to 4 GB RAM and the amount of internal storage mentioned above. Its 13.3-inch display has 1,920X1,080 pixels, while the list of connectivity features includes WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2, HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports, as well as a card reader. This portable weighs 3 pounds and gets its power from a 48 WHr battery that promises to last up to 10 hours on a single charge.

Adorama has the Asus C301SA-DB04 model up for pre-order with free shipping, but unfortunately, they do not have any release date available. We will get back to the Asus C301 soon since it should land at other retailers and a date for the first shipments should also become public.

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.
