You obviously noticed that we’ve been paying a lot of attention to Chromebooks recently. This is because this type of laptops is gaining a lot of popularity. People, who buy laptops, always want different things. In many cases, you don’t need the power of MacBook, you need simplicity and basic features. That’s when Chromebooks come into action.
One of most renowned Chromebook makers is ASUS. The company has a great Flip model which can be used as both laptop and tablet. Let’s take a closer look at it.
Asus Chromebook Flip is undoubtedly one of the best laptops in this category. First off, it boasts a sturdy, metal construction. The aluminium body is very elegant and aesthetically pleasing. It’s also super-compact – the laptop has a 10.1-inch display, 15mm thickness and 890g weight. Due to its portability, Chromebook Flip is a perfect device for everyday use work or travelling.
Despite the size, manufacturers managed to install a decent, comfortable keyboard and a trackpad. But if you don’t want to use them, you can flip the rotating screen around and the device transforms into a tablet. The display is of course touchscreen, so you’ll be able to read books or web materials in a more convenient, vertical position.
In terms of software, Chromebook Flip is quite special. Unlike other Chromebooks powered by Intel processor, this one has a Rockchip chipset. Besides, there are pretty standard 2GB RAM and 16GB SSD. As a result, the laptop copes well with everything that it was made for, like web browsing, playing music and video or working on some documents.
Lastly, we must talk about one more important feature for any Chromebook – battery time. On Chromebook Flip it’s pretty great – 8 hours 10 minutes on average. That’s enough for a good day of moderate use.
In general, ASUS may have surpassed its Chromebook competitors with this device. Although Flip may seem too small for somebody, it does its job brilliantly.
