ASUS releases beefed-up Chromebook

Chromebooks pack a number of nice features such as light chassis, low prices and the opportunity to work or play while on the go but a really serious downside, when it comes to them, is that in many cases the hardware inside is underpowered so that the overall price remains low. This is a problem because apps tend to come with more and more serious hardware requirements over time that make Chromebooks obsolete shortly after they are purchased.

To counter this negative phenomenon ASUS has launched the C301 Chromebook. The device comes with a price tag of USD 299 but it packs improved specs when compared to older or even current Chromebook models. The C301 sports 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory so it can store and use more demanding programs. On the outside it has a 13.3-inch LED backlit display that works at Full HD resolution. Inside it sports a quad-core Intel Celeron N3160 processor at 1.6 GHz, a 48 Wh battery, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, an HDMI port, a SD card reader and two USB 3.0 ports.

Not bad for just USD 299, don’t you think?
