Asus has today announced the launch of its rugged Chromebook Flip C213, which comes with a 360-degree flippable display. As the name suggest, the latest Chromebook runs on the Chrome OS and comes loaded with some interesting features.
To start with, the Chromebook comes with a durable and versatile design. There is a rubber bumper that protects the chassis and reinforces I/O ports from minor knocks and scrapes. The company says that new Chromebook Flip C213 has been rigorously tested to pass military-grade durability tests, ensuring that it can easily withstand the physical stresses of use in education environments.
Tests include dropping the laptop from 1.2 meters and subjecting it’s all-metal 360-degree hinge to 40,000 open-and-close cycles. Also, it comes with a modular construction that enables the IT staff to replace key components like keyboard, touchpad, battery, motherboard or display panel in a few simple steps, using a minimum number of tools.
Further, the laptop features an 11.6-nch touchscreen display and it comes loaded with two variants: one is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass protection and support an optional stylus which incorporates Wacom EMR technology. The other version features an anti-glare finish, which is easy to view in both indoor and outdoor lighting conditions.
Through the 360 degrees flippable display, users can use it in different modes including laptop, tent, stand and tablet. On the camera front, it features a 5MP rear camera for high-resolution photos and videos, and an HD front camera for video calls. There is a 46Wh battery, which the company claims delivers up to 12 hours of continuous use. The notebook runs on the Chrome OS and features G Suite and cloud services as Google Classroom and Google Cloud Platform.
