Reviews for the Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA-DB02
All told, the C101PA is certainly affordable, it just isn’t as affordable as some of its competitors. Acer’s Chromebook R11 accomplishes the same tablet feats as the C101PA, but for a bit less. The HP Chromebook 14 has similar internals to Asus’s Chromebook, and while HP’s device isn't convertible, it is cheaper. When other devices do what the C101PA does, but for cheaper, it’s hard to see the value.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive convertible that doesn’t feel cheap, then the C100PA should go to the top of your list. In Chromebook terms it’s one of the best we’ve used, but only if you’re happy with a small screen. Road warriors will appreciate the long battery life and lightweight chassis, while everyone else could soon find themselves beguiled by its design aesthetics and no fuss performance.

The Asus Chromebook Flip is a thin, light, inexpensive and very well-built laptop that also functions as a tablet. More than acceptable performance is accompanied by all-day battery life, and while the Chrome OS-powered machine works best in laptop mode, the 10.1in touchscreen is reasonable for tablet duties.

I’m in two minds about the Flip. I like the size, the build, the style, the battery life. The keyboard, speakers and display are all rather good too. But for the money you can get Android tablets with the same size but higher resolution screens and bigger, more powerful Windows 10 machines. Yes, the Chromebook boots faster and is more secure but the HP Stream-series laptops are far more versatile. As it stands, the Chromebook Flip is a nice bit of kit that either needs a bigger screen or a lower sticker price to be wholeheartedly recommended.

Ultimately, as I've said before, the Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) is like the Google Chromebook Pixel in miniature, and is also a lot less expensive. From the aluminum construction to the convertible design, from the Rockchip-powered performance to the 11-hour battery life, the Flip is one of the most impressive offerings we've seen in the category, replacing the HP Chromebook 11 as our top pick for Chrome-based laptops.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
