Asus, HP dispatch new 2-in-1 Chromebooks at $299

Take your pick: HP 's ruggedized x360 Chromebook with 11.6-inch screen and Intel Celeron processor, or the 10.1-inch Flip C101 with an ARM hexa-center CPU.


They absolutely don't have the razzle-stun of Google's simply spilled Pixelbook, yet the new Chromebooks from Asus and HP will speak to significantly more individuals with their financial plan benevolent evaluating. 

We've seen HP's putting forth before as the Chromebook x360 11 G1 Education Edition, which was discharged the previous spring. The people at HP probably been sufficiently glad with the convertible tablet to offer it to the overall population in a non-instruction rendition. 

Furthermore, there's bounty to be content with, as the x360 accompanies a 11.6-inch touchscreen, Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 16GB of inherent stockpiling. None of these are momentous specs for a Chromebook, however HP has additionally held the tough highlights of the Education Edition, for example, a scratch-safe Gorilla Glass 3 show and spill-safe console. 

At first look, the Asus Flip C101 doesn't appear to sufficiently offer to legitimize its comparative evaluating as the x360. It incorporates a littler 10.1-inch show and an ARM-based CPU instead of an Intel one, and does not accompany the toughness additional items of the HP. In any case, it's about a pound lighter, and its Rockchip processor has six centers rather than the Celeron's two. Its greater sibling, the Flip C302, is very much respected, as ZDNet's own Sandra Vogel discovered when she looked into it a couple of months back. 

Both half breed Chromebooks share a 360-pivoted configuration (enabling you to utilize it in tablet mode), the capacity to run Android applications, and a similar sticker price of $299. Which one would you purchase for the cash?
