I woke this morning to some very exciting news from the land down under. The slow, laborious expansion of the global Chromebook market just took another step in the right direction.
The email from one of our readers was a forward from ASUS’ Australian-based shop and it contained the announcement that the ASUS C302CA Chromebook Flip was now available online from ASUS.
AU C302C 6Y30/32U/4G/US//C302CA-1AGU/WOC/V/WAC/DM is now back in stock and ready to be purchased from ASUS Australia Shop. Please note that availability is on a first come, first served basis.

Here’s a rundown of the specifics on the ASUS:
- Model: C302CA-GU001
- OS: Chrome OS
- Color: Silver
- Display: 12.5″ FHD
- Memory: 4GB LPDDR3
- Storage: 32GB EMMC
- Processor: Intel® Core™ m3
- Backlit keyboard
- 2 x USB-C 3.1
All this will set you back $799 AUD and includes GST (goods & services tax). Pricing may still be a bit askew compared to the 64GB U.S. model but the availability is something to get excited about.
The growth of the global Chromebook market has been painful. Every day we field questions and complaints about the limited availability of Chrome devices outside of the states and rightfully so. Each time we see a new device released overseas our confidence is bolstered that the Chrome OS market, eventually, will strike a balance worldwide.

Special thanks to our friend Simon for the heads up.
