The Asus Chromebook C223 and C423 join yesterday's C523
Yesterday, we talked about the Asus Chromebook C523, which had an official product page already but no price and availability details. Now, two more Chrome OS-driven portables have just been unveiled by Asus, namely the C223 and C423. The good news is that all three come for sub-US$300 prices and those interested can already purchase them.
The Asus Chromebook C223 is a 2.2-pound, 11.6-inch machine that is actually smaller than a sheet of A4 paper. Obviously, it is also one of the thinnest Chromebooks on the market, with a thickness of less than 0.68-inch. The color choices are gray, red, and blue.
The larger Chromebook C423 comes with a 14-inch display (touchscreen option also available), two USB Type-C ports (the C223 only has one), and — obviously — an increased weight and more generous dimensions overall, although it is slightly thinner than the C223.
The list of common specs and features includes a display resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, the Intel Celeron N3350 processor (it looks like the Intel Pentium N4200 option is not available yet), two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a HD webcam, a full-size chiclet keyboard, and a 38 Wh Lithium-polymer battery that promises to deliver up to 10 hours of autonomy on a single charge.
In the US, the Chromebook C223 can be acquired for US$229 from the Asus Store, Abt, Adorama, Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg. The C423 and C523 come for the same price of US$269, but can be found in fewer locations. The C523 is only available via Amazon and B&H, while the C423 should be up for purchase on the Asus Store, Abt, Adorama, and Amazon.
