Asus is about to launch two ChomeBooks, Asus C200 Chromebook and  C300 Chromebook, for respectively around $250 and $350 according to listing from various online retailers, as NetbookItalia has recently reported.

Let’s go through the specs available for both laptops. These are unconfirmed and incomplete, as I just gathered some information from multiple sites.

Asus C200 Chromebook:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron N2830 dual core processor @ 2.16 Ghz (Burst mode: 2.41 GHz ) with Intel HD graphics up to 750 MHz. (7.5 W TDP).
  • System Memory – 2GB RAM
  • Storage – 16 GB eMMC
  • Display – 11.6″ display (1366×768)
  • Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 1x USB 2.0 port, 1x USB 3.0 port
  • Video Output – HDMI port
  • Webcam – HD
  • Battery – 48WHrs, 3S1P, 3-cell Li-ion Polymer Battery Pack up to 10 hours
  • Weight – 1.15kg

There appears to be at least three variants, namely C200MA-EDU, C200MA-DS01 and C200MA-KX002, but at this stage we do not know what the differences are. Some sites are taken pre-order, but expect shipping to start in May as stated on Promevo.

Asus C300 Chromebook:

It doesn’t say if these passively cooled ? it’s the only reason why I didn’t upgrade my Samsung Chromebook to the Acer C720, silent is addicted !
