Asus Chromebook tablet with Skylake processor could be in the works

Asus Chromebook Flip C100 convertible to get a Skylake-powered successor

The popular Chromebook Flip might soon get a Skylake-powered sibling that currently seems to be internally known as "Cave."
Codrut Nistor,

Asus Chromebook Flip was one of the first 10-inch Chrome OS-driven convertibles when it launched back in 2015, but its specs were not in the upper sector of the market. For a 2015 Chromebook, that was something normal. However, more and more powerful have started to show up in the meantime, and now it looks like the Chromebook Flip might soon get a Skylake-powered successor.

Earlier this year, Asus Chromebook Flip became the first device powered by Chrome OS to get full support for Android apps. Although nothing is official yet, a few comments inside Google's Chromium source code revealed a new device dubbed "Cave" that has a touchscreen display, tablet functionality enabled by the lid's position, as well as a Skylake processor inside.

The first-gen Chromebook Flip is powered by a Rockchip RK3288 processor, offers up to 4 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, while its display only has 1,280X800 pixels. A Skylake Chromebook Flip would definitely push all these specs higher but remains to see when does it come out - if at all.

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.
