It was a little over five years ago that Google announced its first Chromebook with partners Acer and Samsung. While the primary focus of Chromebooks has been the educational sector, they have also started to gain traction on the consumer front, being sold in many retailers across the world. ASUS currently offers five different models and although there has been no formal announcement by the firm, a new convertible model has made its way to market.
While not the most powerful unit available, the ASUS C302CA-DHM4 should offer plenty, when one considers the device will be running Chrome OS. Although small in size, it offers 2 USB Type-C ports, a touchscreen display, and backlit keyboard. Another perk of the unit is that it is a convertible model that will allow the screen to be folded all the back for a more tablet-like experience.
Full specifications of the ASUS C302CA-DHM4:
- Intel Core M3 m3-6Y30 (4M Cache, up to 2.2 GHz)
- 4G LPDDR3 with 64GB storage expandable via microSD
- 12.5" touchscreen display with 1080p resolution

- 2.65 lbs
The C302CA-DHM4 is now available directly from Newegg for $499 in the United States.
