ASUS today announced the Chromebook family of fast, sleek, sophisticated and easy-to-use Chrome OS laptops powered by latest energy-efficient Intel® Bay Trail-M processors. Available in two screen sizes — the 12-inch C200 model and 13-inch C300 — ASUS Chromebook is designed for outstanding mobility and features up to 11 hours battery life for all-day use.
ASUS Chromebook has an impressively compact chassis that measures just 20mm thick, making it supremely portable. The stylish and attractive design has a hidden screen hinge that gives it a sleek look, and the durable black matte finish gives Chromebook a luxurious and sophisticated feel. Chromebook C300 is also available in a choice of three additional stunning statement colors — red, yellow and blue — that make it a perfect match for any lifestyle.
A unique extra-spacious touchpad — comparable in size to those normally found on 14-inch laptops, and the largest in its class — with multi-finger gesture support makes ASUS Chromebook incredibly comfortable and intuitive to use. The full-size one-piece seamless chiclet keyboard is engineered with a high-quality mechanism for a solid feel with a responsive and accurate action.
For great entertainment on the go, crisp, high-quality sound is assured by the powerful high-quality stereo speakers, which have extra-large audio chambers for performance that belies their size.
ASUS Chromebook is fully connected, with up to ultra-fast 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Connecting to a second large display or even a TV is easy thanks to the HDMI-out port. A USB 2.0 port is provided, as well as a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port for up to 10-times faster data transfers.
ASUS Chromebook is proof that computing on the go can be simple, intuitive, hassle-free and fun. It harnesses the power of Chrome OS to give users a secure mobile gateway to the world of Google web services and thousands of Chrome Web Store apps designed for home, business and education.
With automatic updates, built-in virus protection and multiple layers of security, Chrome OS takes the frustration out of computing, allowing users to enjoy everything the web has to offer. Files and documents are kept safe and sound thanks to the 100GB of Google Drive storage provided free for two years. Setting up an ASUS Chromebook just requires signing in with a Google Account, and multiple users can be added with each user’s settings and files being kept completely private.
