UPDATE! Thanks to tip from nismo95tt I see that jet.com matched the pricing! They also offer coupon code "TRIPLE15" for 15% off first 3 jet.com orders (max $30/order). I just pulled trigger -- with free shipping, no tax, and after coupon it was just $220!

ASUS Chromebook Flip 10.1-Inch Convertible 2 in 1 Touchscreen (Rockchip, 4 GB, 16GB SSD, Silver) [amazon.com]

Rockchip 1.8 GHz Processor
4 GB DDR3 RAM
Storage : 16GB Solid State Storage
10.1 inches 1280*800 pixels LED-lit Screen
Chrome Operating System

  • I really like my Chromebook. You might not be a fan, and that's fine. Think the deal is pretty good for a 4GB ultraportable.
  • This model will also get Play Store at some point this month, just one of three model to get it before the Fall. More on that here [google.com].
  • And based on price tracking sites this is the lowest price since December 2015.
  • You can play with the 2GB model in most (every?) Best Buy. They are well built little machines from my little time with them.

Isnt this like a calculator that browses the web using a buggy slow freezing up browser or what's so great about a chrome book that makes it worth more than 25 bucks?

I can only imagine how crapping and buggy android and chrome and g+ and youtube have become that this product is 100x worse than a mac even

1) Well Chromebooks are good for many school applications, since they are simple, cheap, secure. But they haven't had MS Office on them of any kind, as it's been all Google Docs instead. With the upcoming arrival of the Play Store to this laptop you should be able to use the official Microsoft Android apps [google.com], although I've had no experience with them mysef.

2) Rockchip may be weaker but I think it sips even less power than Intels, and might be good enough to get the job done for Chrome OS, especially with 4GB on this device. Not sure though -- the 2GB version I played with at Best Buy felt a little slow compared to my trusty old C720.

These will have Android apps available to them at some point this month. You can use Microsoft's Word android app for free, much like you would use with your phone.

I like how he described it as "crapping".

not a bad deal but surprised so many thumbs up for only $29 off (~12%)

I got a Samsung Chromebook from Cowboom last year for $79 that has been great for my 5th grade daughter. Any more deals like that one?

Wow, that's a pretty lame comment from MrShawn, eh?

I could tell from your previous posts that you were already anticipating those people that come out of the woodwork attacking the concept of a Chromebook. I think you did a decent job of it, but I do wish those people would do a Google search on why Chromebooks exist, and not clog up a deal forum with silly questions.

This does seem like a great chromebook. We use chromebooks at work for our nurses to connect remotely to our remote desktop solutions. The beauty of them are: If the nurse destroys the chromebook (and they are good at it) there is no real data lost, and they are less expensive than a laptop. Also, they don't have patient data locally on the machine, so if they are stolen or infected with a virus (nearly 0 percent chance of happening), no patient data is compromised. Also, the Google management suite is impressive. I can block sites and add-ons, and lock the chromebook to our organization.

So, those of you who still want to argue on whether chromebooks should exist, take it to another forum.

What's going on here? I bought this exact model for $230 last fall.

It's a great chromebook - fast and light (2 lbs, whew!)

The only thing is that the resolution is a bit on the low end.

No regrets buying it at $230 though.

Did you miss the question marks?
Crappy brand that makes nothing but almost pure trash makes an OS.

Your argument is roadmaster/audiovox audio systems could make a competition winning product someday so just buy whatever they make in case.

My theory is they have never so why would they.

The burden of proof lies upon you to prove a total crap company made an OS that is worth more than a few bucks. Do i have to prove to you the 6 armed elephant god doesnt exist as well for it to be a valid reasoning?

How cant you simpletons figure such easy things out? Confused
Fanboisim? Is the google crowd the next apple/Sennheiser crowd? EEK!

The chrome OS v53 should make this function like a true tablet with an attached keyboard. Given the limitations of the android apps vs standalone apps like Word and Excel.

The boon will be to the thousands of kids that have this flip model. Minecraft...........nice summer present!!!

Most high end tablets like the Pixel C and Galaxy Tab have 3 GB of RAM. So the 4 GB should suffice, wonder how the 2 GB model will fare. I have three of these, 2 2GB models and 1 4GB model. Had a motherboard replacement at the one month mark on one of the 2GB models. ASUS handled it flawlessly, just a one week turnaround here in No. CA.

Nice, well built devices. Great screens.
