Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA review: A versatile laptop with lots to love
ASUS Chromebook C302CA Flip is ahead of its time. All deliveries of Chromebooks in 2017, including Chromebook pull, can run Android applications natively. Android apps we tested on Chrome and we can see great potential to expand the capabilities of a Chromebook. We really wanted to review this feature on Chromebook Flip, but in light of this writing, the technology is still in beta.
Meanwhile, we can still appreciate Chromebook’s pull of its components and its higher performance. They will cost you: $ 499 for our model (a lower version costs $ 449).
For the money, however, Chromebook Pull offers a better user experience than the popular $ 200 Chromebook, you could love it again in a few years.
To start, let’s go through the main specs for the Chromebook pull C302CA and talk about what you get for the price:
RAM: 4 GB LPDDR3. This is a sufficient amount of memory for common tasks, but if you push your browser tabs or communicate so much, you can hit a wall. A high-powered Chromebook pull model offers 8GB of RAM, but obviously costs more.
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 515. This is an integrated graphics solution, not as powerful as Intel Iris integrated graphics, but will allow you to stream videos.
Storage: 64 GB eMMC with TPM. EMMC flash storage is cheap, but not very fast. The amount of 64 GB is better than the 16 GB or 32 GB that can be found on the cheaper models. The Trusted Platform Module is a security feature that can encrypt sensitive information, such as access information.
Display: 12.5 inches 1920×1080 FHD touch screen. This is where a lot of money goes. After surviving a colorful parade Chromebooks lower end with pellets of 1366×768 screens, we welcome the full HD screen on Chromebook Flip.
It has a 16: 9 aspect ratio, a width of 178 degree viewing angle and a high brightness of 300 nit. We actually measured 310 nits with our views, but we also realized that the screen dims quickly:
The average setting seems low, while the best settings are high or medium high. Note that the higher resolution means that your icons and text will be smaller, and the screen will also ask you for more of your battery, especially if you must enable brightness to routine routine>
