Newegg.com momentarily listed the ASUS C302CA Chromebook for sale today, though it has yet to be made official by ASUS.

NewEgg seemed to be taking orders for the still-unofficial ASUS C302CA Chromebook earlier today, but the listing (link now defunct) was taken down after just a few hours. Despite that, ChromeUnboxed was able to place an order and confirmed it would be shipped after contacting support.

The ASUS C302CA is a 12.5-inch (FHD), 2.65-pound convertible, powered by an Intel Core m3, 4GB DDR3 RAM, and 64GB EMMC storage. It is also quite compact, measuring 11.97" wide, 8.27" deep, and only .54" thick. The device sports 2 USB Type-C 3.1 ports (which can be used for connectivity or power) and a microSD card slot.

With a backlit keyboard, IPS screen, aluminum construction, and convertible design, the C302CA looks like a solid, higher-end convertible. It will sell at a relatively premium price of US$499. If it isn't back up soon on NewEgg, you can expect that it will be officially released by CES.

I am a university Lecturer and researcher in English writing, but I like to keep myself busy. Between weightlifting, MMA, and SCUBA diving, one of my life-long interests has always been computers. I used Macs until about 17 years ago when I switched to PCs because of an interest in games, but I'm still interested in top quality laptops that push the design envelope.
