A well-known PC maker has expanded its line of Chrome OS devices, with four new devices – one tablet and three laptops. The most interesting tablet is, of course, the first device of this type from Asus running Chrome OS. The tablet is labeled CT100 and is primarily intended for younger children, as it has a thick, rubber-reinforced casing. The diagonal of the hardened glass tempered glass is 9.7 inches with a QXGA resolution. It is powered by a Hexa-core OP1 processor built for Chromebooks, along with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of data space.
The next device is the Chromebook Flip C214, the successor to the C212, which also features a solid and well-protected case, a keyboard that does not leak the fluid and a wrist that allows the 360-degree screen to rotate. As this model can be used both as a tablet and as a laptop, Asus has set the "last" camera in the bottom right corner of the computer's base, which provides a good view when it is used in tablet mode. The C214 runs Intel N4000 or N4100 Celeron, has 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space that can be expanded via a MicroSD card, or via a USB Type-A port.
The other two models are laptops, with a wrist that allows you to rotate up to 180 degrees, so they can lie lying on the table. The C204 has a 11.6-inch diagonal display, HD resolution, while the C403 delivers a 14-inch HD display. Both models have 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space, USB Type-C and Type-A ports, as well as a slot for MicroSD cards. Asus did not give more precise information about the processors that run them, except that the smaller model is Intel dual-core Celeron, while the larger model is available only as a dual-core CPU.
The official launch of these devices is scheduled for CES 2019, and the start of sales is expected in the coming months.
