Asus Chromebook C301SA on sale for 299 dollars

Asus Chromebook C201SA is now sale in USA for 299 dollars. If you think that the price is a bit high for a chromebook, then Asus has tried to make this more attractive by throwing in a 64GB SSD and full HD display. And since the Chrome OS will soon gain the ability to run android apps, it makes sense to launch laptops with more storage space.

Such specifications would give even the cheapest laptops running windows a run for their money as there are certain people who do not want viruses and don’t want windows operating system on their computers.

Asus is quite popular in USA and one can see it at the top of various shopping sites. Asus Chromebook C201SA specifications include 13.3 inch full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 4GB of memory, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, USB 3.0 and HDMI. Powering all this is an Intel Celeron N3160 quad core processor based on braswell framework. It is quite funny to see this chromebook laptop not packing touchscreen display as most android applications and games work best with touchscreen.

ASUS Chromebook C301SA has less storage space than a notebook with Windows or a MacBook, but it offers much more than any other Chromebook in circulation as well as the majority of smartphones and tablets in the same price range. And if you need more space for music, movies and other files, you can expand the memory with a micro SD card.

Asus Chromebook C201SA initial price was 279 dollars but that model came with 16GB flash storage and HD 1366 x 768 pixel resolution which would not have made any kind of splash in the market. By adding full HD 1080p display and 64GB of flash storage and bumping the price by mere 20 dollars, Asus has created something masses would want to buy.
