The best Chromebook you can buy right now

 

It's a close call

Solid performance from i5 processor ; SD card slot and plenty of ports ; Respectable, but not great battery life

No touchscreen ; No backlit keyboard

Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA review: A versatile laptop with lots to love

 

The Asus C302CA is an advanced Chromebook with a 360-degree hinge, great display and battery life, and Android support.

Beautiful 1920x1080 display with 178-degree viewing angles ; Long 10-hour battery life ; Surprisingly good keyboard ; 360-degree hinge gives clamshell-to-tablet versatility

Display's middle setting is dark, necessitating high setting for most use

Asus Chromebook Flip C302 review: standard issue

 

The new baseline for Chrome OS convertibles

Nice build quality ; Fast processor ; Backlit keyboard

Dim screen ; Weak speakers ; Small trackpad

We're not there yet, and so the highest praise I can give Asus is that this fairly innocuous and forgettable computer is innocuous and forgettable in the best ways: it looks good, it works well, and I don't have to worry about it. It's a great baseline...

Asus Chromebook Flip review

 

Remember the now-discontinued 11-inch MacBook Air ? The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA is like a cheaper version of it that you can actually buy.

The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA has a 360-degree hinge, a backlit keyboard, two USB-C ports, a sharp display and a posh all-aluminum build. Supports Google Play Android apps.

The USB-C ports don't support Thunderbolt 3.

With a hybrid hinge, touchscreen and support for Google Play apps, the Asus Chromebook Flip is a small Chromebook offering big value.

Asus Chromebook Flip (C302CA-DHM4)

 

The Asus Chromebook Flip (C302CA-DHM4) might be more expensive than the average chromebook, but its rich selection of features makes it well worth the extra money.

Convertible hinge design. Lots of storage and RAM. Full HD screen. Metal body construction. Two USB-C ports. Warranty includes damage protection. Bright and clear display. Backlit keyboard.

Legacy connections require adapters. Pricier than other chromebooks.

The Asus Chromebook Flip (C302CA-DHM4) is appealing if you want (quite) a bit more than a run-of-the-mill chromebook, and are willing to pay for it. It's still priced in line with entry-level Windows laptops. For example, the 11-inch Lenovo Yoga 710...

Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA Review

 

With Android app support moving out of beta and becoming a standard part of Chrome OS this year, Chromebook 2-in-1s are becoming extremely important. The 12.5-inch convertible Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA is ready to run Android apps or dozens of Chrome...

Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA review: A classy convertible

 

Chromebooks may have started life as a low-cost computing option for students or those wanting an auxiliary laptop to their main Windows (or macOS) system, but nowadays they're moving up in the world.

Slim and light, with good build quality ; 360-degree screen hinge allows tablet-mode operation ; Excellent backlit keyboard ; Two USB-C ports ; Supports Google Play Android apps

Keys don't lock when in tablet mode ; No Thunderbolt 3 support on USB-C ports ; Screen isn't bright enough for outdoor use

The Best Chromebook

 

After testing most of the Chromebooks released in the past three years, we've found that the Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA is the best Chromebook for most people.

Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA Review and Ratings

 

A winner among 2-in-1 Chromebooks, the Flip C302CA is sleek yet sturdy, powerful yet silent, while offering a roomy keyboard and a long-running battery.

All-aluminum enclosure is sleek, solid ; Fanless design ; Snappy performance ; Long battery life

"Just" 1080p screen resolution ; Touch pad could be bigger

The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA sits in the sweet spot, we believe, for Chromebooks, as long as you view this 2-in-1 convertible model as a laptop first and tablet second—and not the other way around.
