ASUS launches its first Chrome OS tablet


Taiwanese based tech giant ASUS has added four new devices to its Chrome OS line up. This includes the brand’s first tablet that runs on the operating system. Similar to the other Chrome devices, all the four are meant to be used in a classroom . The devices have been built with tough bodies and flexible hinges and can be able to withstand abuse.

The tablet model CT100 has been specifically made for the younger kids and features a thick rubberized chassis with a 9.7 inch QXGA display which is covered with a strong tempered glass. The device also has 4 GB RAM, 32 GB onboard storage and is powered by the Hexa-core OP1 processor made for Chromebooks. The next entry in the list of the Chromebook FlipC214, which is a follow up to the C213 which also features a tough exterior. It has a spill-proof keyboard and a 360 degree hinge.

The device is supposed to be used as a tablet or a laptop so ASUS has placed its world-view camera at the bottom right corner of the palm rest for ease of use when it is in the tablet mode. The laptop is powered by the Intel N4000 or the N4100 Celeron processor with 4GB RAM and 32 G Storage that can be expandable through a Micro USB or an external storage with the help of a USB Type A port.

The remaining two devices are laptops which have 180 degree hinges due to which they can lie flat and allow a group of students to work together with the help of just one device. The C204 has a 11.6 inch display while the C403 has a 14 inch HD display. Both the ASUS models are powered by 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage with USB Type C and Type A ports with micro SD card slot. The C204 has been powered with an Intel Dual Core Celeron Processor but ASUS has not specified the C403’s CPU.
