Our friend, +Brent Sullivan, reported earlier today that the 64GB Asus Chromebook is now available for pre-sale at Adorama for $299.99.
The new, 13.3″ Chromebook is equipped with 4GB of ram, 64GB of eMMC storage and is powered by an Intel Celeron N3160 processor. The Asus also includes a 1080p screen.
The Asus C301SA is also on the list of devices that will be receiving the Play Store some time in the coming weeks when Chrome OS 53 lands on the stable channel.
We hope this will be a nudge to other OEM’s that an affordable device with a decent amount of storage and the internals to handle Android Apps is definitely a market that is ripe.
We look forward to getting our hands on the new Asus and taking it for a test drive. Stay tuned for more to come. Don’t forget to subscribe and stay up-to-date on All Things Chrome.
