Asus C301SA Chromebook with 64 GB of internal storage coming soon
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.
