Asus get one Chromebook transformable, the first of its kind. The Flip C100 can go from laptop to tablet in the blink of an eye. New for a machine running ChromeOS.
Detachable screen point here. We stay in the PC sector with a 360 ° swivel hinge, capable of folding the screen on the keyboard or on the back of the machine. Unlike Windows which has adapted to it, ChromeOS has never presented an interface designed for tactile use. We bet that Google will have modified its system for the occasion. The screen in place is a 10.1 inch IPS model displaying at 1280 x 800 pixels.
Inside, nothing new. The configuration of the Chromebook continues with ARM and, in this case, a Rockchip RK3288-C combining a Cortex-A17 processor at 1.8 GHz and a Mali-T624 graphics chip. The set comes with 2 or 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, expandable via microSD. Connectivity is provided by two USB 2.0 ports and a microHDMI output.
We are far from the specifications of Chromebook Pixels, but the price is felt. Already available across the Atlantic, the Chromebook Flip C100 is sold there for less than $ 300. It will be marketed in France, but at an unknown date and price.
