The Asus Chromebook Flip C302 is a great device but it’s getting long in the tooth. Asus stepped up two processor generations, improved and made the display larger with 5mm bezels in the new Chromebook C434, which could be a hit if the price is right.
HP chose AMD to power its new Chromebook 14 that starts at $269 and a quick benchmark shows slightly better performance than a higher priced Intel Celeron or Pentium powered Chromebook.
Can AMD break into the Chromebook market dominated by Intel processors? Acer must think so because it’s using an AMD chip with Radeon R4 graphics in the new Acer Chromebook 315, a 15.6-inch device that starts under $300.
Asus is chasing the fast-growing education market with its first Chrome OS tablet, but you may have seen this one before. Essentially, the Asus Chromebook Tablet CT100 has the same hardware specifications as last year’s Acer Chromebook Tab 10.
