ASUS Chromebook Flip 2 goes official for $499 with dual USB-C and Intel Core m3


As CES 2017 kicks off today, ASUS has just made the ASUS Chromebook Flip 2 (C302) official. The final specs match up pretty closely with previous leaks, but with some surprising and welcome new additions.

The machine packs a 12.5-inch 1080p display, 6th generation Intel Core m3 processor, 32, 64, or 128GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM. That RAM is also upgradable to 8GB, but it’s unclear at this time if that is user upgradable. ASUS also claims 10 hours of battery life on a charge.

In addition to that, there are two USB-C ports, one on each side, with charging and data transfer. Sadly, no standard USB ports are included on the device, but there is still a microSD card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Of course, the screen also flips around just like on the original Chromebook Flip.

As seen in previous leaks, the Chromebook Flip 2 will cost $499 and will be available today.
