Google launches four new budget Chromebooks ranging up t $250
Google has partnered with ASUS, Haier and Hisense to bring four new budget priced Chromebooks to the market. Prominent among these is the ASUS Chromebook Flip, which is a convertible device that can transform into a tablet or a fully functioning notebook on your call.
The Chromebook Flip comes with a 10.1 inch touchscreen display and can be rotated 360 degrees, hence the name. We must note that this tablet cannot detach itself from the keyboard, but merely flip backwards. But it’s a neat feature to have nevertheless.
ASUS Chromebook C201, the Hisense Chromebook and the Haier Chromebook 11 are pretty basic in their approach and don’t come with the bells and whistles of the Chromebook Flip. But the pricing of these devices make them very attractive propositions.
As for the hardware, all the aforementioned Chromebooks sport 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM and a Rockchip 3288 SoC. Other features include a front facing 720p camera and a total of two USB 2.0 ports.
The Chromebook Flip has been priced at $249, while the ASUS Chromebook C201 costs $169. The two Chromebooks from Haier and Hisense have been priced at $149, making them the cheapest of the lot.
