The ASUS Chromebook Flip (flip C100) is a 10 inch, touchscreen Chromebook with a 360-degree hinge – enabling regular notebook mode, tablet mode, also stand and tent modes.  The flip is great for note taking, sharing videos – it does have a full keyboard and touch pad and the touch screen is multi-touch.

This machine runs the Chrome OS software – making it different from Windows and Apple.

Asus Chromebook Flip Review:

asus-chromebook-flip-01The first thing you will notice right away when you grab this chromebook is how sturdy it is – that is largely due to the all aluminum chassis.  But that is important when you go to open up the 360 folding hinge – I cannot tell you how handy having the hinge do that.  Its great if you are using the laptop on your lap, on the floor or a table.  Pretty awesome.

For even more storage, add a microSD card in the slot.  You can get some pretty big microSD cards now – so adding 64 or 128 gig of extra memory is an ease.

One thing that many people don’t know about chromebooks, even though they are cloud based, they can download apps and data and then read them in offline.

If this machine will be used for anything other than light web tasks – email, calendar, skype, chat…then ensure you are buying the 4 gig memory version.

asus-chromebook-flip-02Positive:

  • Touchscreen – which I thought was kind of silly at first…but is very good.  This will also allow a stylus to be used.
  • Its a fanless computer – which means is runs very, very quietly.
  • The Asus knows if it is in portrait or landscape mode – and will switch the screen accordingly.
  • The built in web cam makes Skype and Google Hangouts a breeze.
  • Micro-HDMI

asus-chromebook-flip-03Negative:

  • USB ports are a little tight at first but loosen with use.
  • No internal GPS
  • No built in HDMI streaming.
  • No backlit keyboard

Who needs a computer – I have a keyboard.

This is a cool little product to come out of CES…I think I’ll see how much one is so I can finally put that computer under the kitchen cabnet.

At CES, Asus unveiled a full-sized keyboard with a PC built in. The PC’s desktop can be viewed from the 5-inch interactive display on the keyboard’s right side. The display can also operate media controls in addition to displaying a Windows desktop. The Asus Eee keyboard, named after the company’s line of netbook products, features an Atom processor, USB and video ports, an HDMI port to connect to your HDTV, Wi-Fi, and a solid state drive.

Right now the battery only lasts 90 minutes, but the company plans to up that to 3 hours by the time the device is available for sale. At the moment, the keyboard is just a prototype, but the company plans to release it in September.
