The 13.3-inch FHD Chromebook is expected to retail for just $300 USD. A touchscreen option may not be available.

Chromebooks are typically equipped with 32 GB of onboard storage and cheaper models may have even less space. SD options are usually the solution, but Chromebooks with more than 32 GB of storage remain rare. Now that Android apps are coming to Chromebooks, however, future models may finally have larger storage space options especially if Chromebooks become more popular due to the Android update.

The Asus C301SA is not yet available and is not even on Asus' website. Nonetheless, some retailers are listing the model to suggest an impending launch date. Specifications outside of its generous base 64 GB eMMC include a 13.3-inch FHD panel, 4 GB RAM, webcam, and a quad-core Intel Celeron N3160 based on the Braswell platform. Connectivity features include 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, USB 3.0, HDMI, and an SD reader. There will purportedly be no touchscreen option, however, which could make certain Android apps difficult or impossible to use even if they can be installed without any issues.

The C301SA will be coming to North America for $300 according to retailer listings. No announcements or hints have yet been made about a European launch.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
