ASUS Chromebook Flip C213 Pops Up on Amazon, Up for Preorder at $349

By Radu Iorga

You know what you can get for $349? Well, aside from an Apple HomePod, of course. You can get the latest ASUS ChromeBook Flip C213 model, that just showed up on Amazon, up for preorder.

The device was one of the models that got Android app support this week, thanks to the release of Chrome OS 59. This is a rugged Chromebook we’re talking about and Amazon has it on order. Sadly, it’s also “temporarily out of stock”, but orders can still be placed and you’ll be notified when it ships. This is an educational product, featuring an Intel Apollo Lake processor and two cameras.

The core features are a drop resistant shell and a spill proof keyboard. The Chromebook Flip C213 has 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and lets you access the Play Store via the Stable channel. There’s an 11.6 inch screen on board, with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and everything is crammed inside a 2.7 pound heavy machine. With the rugged, military certified build, this laptop is able to withstand the pressure of classroom use, with kids or teens pulling at it from all angles.

Its battery life is rated at 10 hours, so above the average full day of classes.

New Chromebooks From Lenovo, Acer and HP Get Android App Support

By Radu Iorga

The list of Chromebooks with Android app support is expanding, with new models from Acer, Lenovo and HP now on the list. The majority of such products still lack Android app support, with over 80 models listed as “planned” to receive the functionality on the Chromium Wiki. Still, this week brought the feature to a few more devices.

It’s important to mention that over the past months a few new Chromebooks have arrived on the market, with Play Store included. First we’ve got the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (R751T), that debuted in January and has yet to hit the shops. It’s a 11.6 inch touch machine, with “military grade resilience” and stylus support. It also has two cameras, one above the keyboard and the other the main one.

Then came the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 EE, with 4 versions of it available. They come with an Intel Celeron N3350 processor, Gorilla Glass 3 protection and a spill resistant keyboard. Android app support is limited to the Chrome OS beta channel at the moment. Finally, there’s the Lenovo ThinkPad 11e and the 11e Yoga Chromebook. The first has a regular laptop format, while the second is a 2 in 1 machine.

 

These are educational units, with Celeron N3450 processors and 11.6 inch screens. Play Store access is once again limited to Beta Channel, but you can switch channels, as shown here. Once again the list is ever expanding.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C213NA Now Official, as New Touchscreen Laptop for the Classroom

By James A.

There’s a new Chromebook in town, one made by ASUS and known as the ASUS Chromebook Flip C213NA. It’s meant for the classroom and it’s a convertible machine, that’s pictured below.

This device packs an 11.6 inch touchscreen display with a 360 degree hinge and its body has been seriously ruggedized. The “brain” here is an Intel Celeron Apollo Lake N3350 processor and we also get 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, two USB Type-C ports and two USB 3.0 ones. Stereo speakers and microphone are also part the specs, plus expandable storage.

The resolution is an atypical 1600 x 900 pixels and there’s a camera integrated within the top side of the keyboard, which is also odd. The idea is to put the device in tent mode and have the screen facing you, while the camera faces away, so you can firm a classroom lecture. Don’t worry, as there’s also a front facing webcam. Asus Chromebook Flip C213NA arrives with WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and an audio jack.

A 46 Wh battery is also here and the whole thing weighs 2.8 pounds, plus it measures 0.8 inches in thickness. No official price or debut date has been given.

Flagship Samsung Chromebook Pro finally gets a release date: May 28

By Ron Amadeo

The Samsung Chromebook Pro is finally going to be a real device. Lost in the hubbub of Google I/O Friday, Samsung quietly dropped a press release pegging the device for a May 28 release date.

With the Chromebook Pixel off the market, the all-aluminum, touch-and-pen enabled, Android app-packing Samsung “Chromebook” models were immediately looked to as the flagships of the Chromebook universe. Samsung announced the ARM-powered Chromebook Plus and Intel-powered Chromebook Pro at CES in January, and the Plus saw a reasonable release date the next month. Review units for the faster, Intel-powered Chromebook Pro went out in February, too, but the actual release date remained a mystery.

Now it’s May, and almost five months after the announcement, the Chromebook Pro will finally hit the streets. The reason for the delay is the Android apps on Chrome OS feature. It has been around as a “beta” for some time, but wrapping things up apparently took much longer than Google expected. According to a report from The Verge, the Android on Chrome OS beta will continue into the summer. And while the Chromebook Pro’s Android container will be running Android 7.0, it still won’t support window resizing at launch.

Samsung Chromebook Pro Now Up for Preorder on Amazon

By James A.

Samsung’s Chromebook Pro has been listed for preorder on Amazon.com, after being unveiled quite some time ago, at CES 2017. The delay was probably caused by the necessary updates or tweaks that should make it run Android apps on Chrome OS.

Google is constantly updating the list of Chrome OS devices able to run Android apps and the Chromebok Pro should be on that list as well. The product which is now available for preorder on Amazon starts shipping on May 28th. This is a pretty light and slim machine, at 0.6 inches and 2.4 pounds, for a 12.3 incher. It comes with a Quad HD touchscreen display with a 3:2 aspect, as well as an Intel processor.

It’s got a full size keyboard, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The chipset should be an Intel Core m3 and we also get a 720p webcam, WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0. This notebook has a 39 Wh battery and USB Type-C/Thunderbolt (2) connectivity, as well as a microSD card slot. It’s priced at $550 and offers the tablet and notebook experience in one. Samsung also bundles a stylus.
