As far as Chromebooks go, the Asus Flip C302 is still one of our favorites. It has an awesome feature set and is still one of our top picks for a Chrome OS device that isn’t a Pixelbook. And it is Amazon’s deal of the day: $399.99, or a $100 off.
The C302 sports a solid unibody chassis, the Intel m3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 12.5″ 1080p IPS LCD touchscreen with a 360° hinge, and 64GB of storage. Read MoreAsus Chromebook Flip C302 is $400 ($99 off) on Amazon for Black Friday only was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Chromebook deals abound this holiday season, so this one isn’t too surprising. Asus’ recently-announced C423 is down to $229.99 at Costco and B&H from the $269.99 MSRP, with some other outlets asking a tad more.
For a bit over $200, the C423 isn’t all bad. It has a 14″ 1366×768 display, two USB-C and two USB-A ports, a microSD slot, and a headphone jack. It’s got pretty good battery life and a passable keyboard, even though it has the underwhelming Intel N3350 CPU, plus 32GB of eMMC storage and 4GB of RAM.

Last week, we saw some leaked images of purported Asus ZenFone 6 prototypes with various designs. The most interesting (or most alarming, depending on your outlook) showed a notch way over on the right side of the display. We didn’t think much of it at the time since the authenticity couldn’t be verified, but a new leak suggests that this could indeed be the real deal.
Italian site HDblog.it has posted numerous photos of what it believes to be the final Asus ZenFone 6 design that will be announced at MWC 2019 in Barcelona. Read MoreAlleged Asus ZenFone 6 leak points to novel off-center notch was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
In my opinion, Asus makes the best Chromebooks on the market, second only to Google. Last year’s Chromebook Flip C302 is still one of the best Chrome OS laptops you can buy, especially considering its competitive price point. The company’s lower-end C101PA is also a fantastic 10-inch convertible. I think you can easily make the argument that without Asus, Chromebooks wouldn’t have the mainstream appeal they enjoy today.
That being said, both the C101PA and C302 are nearly two years old and long-overdue for a replacement. Read MoreASUS Chromebook 12 C223NA review: A step backwards was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
