ASUS Chromebook Flip Reaches US Market, Weighing 2 Pounds and Sporting Metal Design

By Radu Iorga

There’s been no shortage of Chromebooks over the past year, but ASUS took things up a notch when they debuted a few months ago the Chromebook Flip. After hitting Japan last month it now goes live in USA. Let’s refresh our memory on this classy Chromebook.

The full name of the product is ASUS Chromebook Flip C101 and it weighs just 2 lbs, while also sporting a full metal body. Since it’s a “flip” device, it obviously also turns into a tablet, not only a laptop. ASUS Chromebook Flip packs a 10.1 inch display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, plus an OP1 processor, which is an ARM Rockchip 3399 unit. Specs include 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage too.

On the connectivity front there’s Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, two USB Type-C ports and one USB 2.0 port too. A microSD card slot is also here, plus a 3.5 mm audio jack. ASUS also promises a battery life of up to 9 hours on a charge. ASUS Chromebook Flip runs Android apps of course, like the other new Chromebooks. Basically, if you were to do nitpicking, you’d say that only the CPU is the drawback here.

If you live in USA and want to buy this machine, there’s the option of preordering the device here, on the ASUS website for $299.

The HiBook News, This Edition: An Update to Google Chrome Has Fixed My Screen Issues!

By Tim

A number of weeks back I wrote about a memory issue where when running Chrome  on the Hi12, if my screen went off it wouldn’t wake up. This annoying issue has forced me to use Microsoft Edge which is, to put it mildly, garbage.

Now this issue only affected my Hi12 and not the HiBook, but since I use the Hi12 as my daily driver at work, this was a very annoying issue. So every day I check for Chrome updates on the Hi12 and yesterday it updated and lo and behold the issue has virtually disappeared! Sure it went to sleep once in the last 24 hrs and did not wake up, but it used to be every time and even using the Edge browser it would happen occasionally.

Sure the Hi12 still has issues with the BIOS being non-writable and     the memory only running at 1066 MHz rather than the full 1600 MHz, but it is still faster than the HiBook and of course has the killer 2160 x 1440 display. Let us not forget the absolutely fantastic battery life of about 10 hrs of normal heavy use!

As for the HiBook, it continues to be the primary server for this site and works flawlessly in that capacity. Sure I have to keep a handle on files that I store on it because the Hi12 gets the big 64 GB microSD card and all the HiBook has free is about 10 GB. Keep in mind that the server Virtual Machine itself sucks up 12 GB of disk space, so in truth I would have all sorts of room if I wasn’t running a server on it.

This is the primary reason that my next device will have easily expandable, SSD type storage. Of course that is the reason I am looking so hard at notebooks and have yet to decide upon one. Of course we are all still waiting on the Chuwi LapBook Air which, if it has an easily accessible SSD expansion slot like the Chuwi LapBook 12.3, would probably be my first choice.

By the way you can still find an Hi12 for only $215 on Gearbest and the HiBook Pro with a larger battery and the Z8350 processor can be found right here for about the same price of $215.

That is all we have for today,

Tim

Tanoshi Kids Tablet Starts its Kickstarter Campaign; Priced Below $200

By Radu Iorga

A couple of day sago we wrote about the Tanoshi tablet and laptop hybrid, a 10 inch machine with Android meant for kids. Back then we said that it was going to be part of a crowdfunding campaign. Well, that campaign is now active via Kickstarter and the device is priced below $200.

The kid friendly machine is meant for little ones aged 6 to 12 and it’s promoted as a sort of “Nexus for pre-teens”. Tanoshi is supposed to offer the kids a way to experience full Android 7.0. It’s also the first device ever to come with the Family Link app from Google preinstalled. Behind this project is Tanoshi itself, a Silicon Valley startup founded by consumer electronics experts, with experience at Google, Apple, HP, Toshiba and Vizio.

The 2 in 1 device features a 10.1 inch HD touchscreen, with extra protection for drops, falls and scratches. Tanoshi implemented a fun signature design and lets users choose from 3 different colors: blue, pink and green. The slate comes with a full size detachable keyboard and it’s preloaded with educational apps, like those related to Math, research ad geography, as well as reading and writing. The full suite of Google productivity apps is here too, plus YouTube Kids.

 

The first 100 backers on Kickstarter will be able to preorder the Tanoshi 2 in 1 computer for a mere $149.99, a $50 saving versus the regular price of $199.99. The first 50 backers to pledge $269.98 will also get a set of two devices, which is a $130 discount form the regular $399 retail price.

Tanoshi has a quad core CPU, 2 GB of RAM and two cameras (5 MP and 2 MP), plus 32 GB of storage and a 5000 mAh battery.

IFA 2017: New Archos Diamond Tab Slate Unveiled in Berlin, With Hexa Core CPU

By Radu Iorga

Archos is always a brand that appears at big tech shows, usually bringing some original tablets. They’ve even dabbled in the area of gaming slates, not approached usually by midrange tablet makers. The newcomer that was unveiled today at IFA 2017 is called Archos Diamond Tab, or better said Archos Diamond Tab (2017), since there was already a Diamond Tab available.

We’re dealing with a metal case machine with a 10.1 inch screen and a Quad HD resolution, mighty impressive for around $300. Inside there’s a hexa core Rockchip processor, accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot. The newcomer measures 8 mm in thickness, weighs 510 grams and it should be available from October.

Archos Diamond Tab (2017) packs a 10.1 inch 2560 x 1600 pixel display, that reminds us of old school models like the Samsung Nexus 10. The GPU is a Mali T860 MP4 and we’ve also got a 6600 mAh battery, a 13 MP back camera and a 5 MP front shooter. The OS of choice is Android Nougat, with some degree of customization.

I expect a microSD card slot to be here and I wonder if there’s also a 4G model.
