    The Asus Chromebook flip might be the first device to offer the best of both ChromeOS and soon Android.

    At $249 for the 2 gigabyte version or $279 for the 4GB it is very reasonably priced for the quality of the build and performance. If you are seeing higher prices it is because third party sellers are marking it up over retail here on Amazon. It is powered by a Rockchip RK3288 processor that delivers performance on par with Intel powered devices at the same price point. Battery life is outstanding with easily 8-10 hours of use between charges.

    What I like best is what Google is doing with the interface here. It seamlessly moves from tablet mode to keyboard mode, with windows going full screen when the keyboard flips backward. It also has a really interesting handwriting recognition engine for text input.

    Asus continues to impress me with what they are able to sell for sub $300 prices. This device is all metal, has a really nice keyboard despite the small key sizes, and even delivers an IPS display.

    This is an iPad killer device, June 26, 2015

    Loved this device. Absolutely gorgeous and solid. I wrote a review which you can read online my searching my name along with Chromebook Flip. Here are my takeaway: If you are looking for an affordable tablet that can double as a laptop, Chromebook Flip is for you. There is just no reason for you to throw hundreds of dollars at the iPad. The biggest argument in favor of Chromebook Flip over iPad is that you get the uncompromised ‘desktop’ experience on a tablet with much more flexibility.

    I am going to start the review for the device itself the Asus C-100 Flip Chromebook, then below you will see a review for the Chrome OS, if this is your first Chromebook as it is for me I recommend you read it, I will explain what you can expect of the OS, without the flowers and birds that Google, the Chromebook manufacturers and those excellent reviewers in the Tech sites tell you.

    I bought this Chromebook with the idea of having a simple right to the point laptop / or a tablet with an attached keyboard, It is not the first time that I have a similar device, I owned a HP laptop, that was convertible it was a touch screen, flip tablet/laptop HP TX-2500 model year 2008, so the idea of a flip screen, touch screen, keyboard on screen and physical keyboard is already very old. I did some upgrades and the end it was running Win 8.1 64 bit with a Samsung SSD 250GB, and 4GB memory. (I gave it to my niece who is going to college). Link to: http://www.tabletpcreview.com/tabletreview/hp-pavilion-tx2500-review/

    Why do I say all of this, so you know I have bases for comparison, I also I own a Galaxy Tab (for which I have a case with a Bluetooth keyboard), a One Plus Smartphone, and a touch screen 25” over the top Dell Desktop. (I work with graphics, accounting, word processing and light CAD)

    Ok so let’s start with the C-100 Chromebook. The features of flip screen, a physical keyboard, self stand, touch screen display, touch screen keyboard, and the mouse/touchpad are awesome, and those features are comparable to with the laptop that I had before. So in that sense I did not downgrade, I kept the same features.
    I installed a Samsung EVO 64GB micro SD priced in Amazon at $27, in my experience 32 GB would have been enough, but the price of the 64GB was very attractive.

    Pluses over the old laptop, light weight, thinner, no heat, no noisy fans, smaller size, faster charging time, smaller and lighter weight power supply, thinner power cable for the power supply, faster boot time. You can have it in your lap without getting tired of the weight, and the heat. It will not overheat if you place it in top of a pillow, it does not have fans, or in/out air slots in the case.
    You can do a selection with the mouse/touchpad or touch screen at any time, both are active in the laptop mode,( meaning that the keyboard is flat and the screen is upright) on the tablet mode keyboard under the screen, the keyboard functions and mouse track are disabled, but you have a touch screen keyboard available in tablet mode.

    Pluses over the Galaxy Tab 10, it has a physical keyboard integrated, its own stand, simplicity, no apps that are constantly updating, no apps tracking your location or preferences, no app permissions, no apps running in the background eating away your memory and CPU resources. Also you can install a regular mouse, which will give you the feel of a complete PC. There is a mini-mini mouse with a retractable cord by Targus, which actually fits in your pocket, about $10.
    For the Galaxy Tab 10, I have a case with a Bluetooth keyboard, it is useful, but it does not replace the keyboard on a Chromebook, does not have a touchpad, and the case is one of those that have a flimsy built-in stand that needs to be in a firm surface, and do not touch it too much.

    Minus over the old laptop, you cannot install an accounting software, CAD, a Photoshop or PageMaker (old software), or the newer adobe suite. The Chromebook does not have the processing power of a laptop and it doesn’t have an awesome large drive like a 1 TB.
    Minuses over the Galaxy Tab, the Chromebook is a little bit heavier, you cannot install the apps that you already have in your android device ranging from the productivity and useful ones to the fart apps.

    Minuses over the Galaxy Tab or a PC/Laptop, there is a beautiful desktop for you to have pictures / wall paper of your dog, cat or uncle Buck losing his trousers during the summer pool party, the desktop area is for that only, to see only a wallpaper .
    All of that area and you cannot install decent sized shortcut for websites. The only place where you can install a shortcut is in the bottom bar the SHELF as Google calls it, a big name for a little strip called taskbar in a PC. The shelf bar can be repositioned in either side of the screen or in the bottom; the shelf bar cannot be resized as in a desktop taskbar.

    Print and scanning on a Chromebook (pay attention to this one)
    Can you connect a printer/scanner to the USB ports? NO
    Can you connect a printer / scanner via Bluetooth? NO
    Can you connect a printer or scanner via WIFI? NO (keep reading)
