So, we’re sitting in the office this morning discussing the unfortunate state of Chromebook availability in the U.K. and other countries. The reasons for limited release of new devices vary greatly and have become the root of much disdain for manufacturers who continue to focus their efforts primarily on the U.S. market.
Today, however, there is call for much rejoicing. (Insert Monty Python yayyyyyy) What could possibly be the contender for hottest Chromebook of 2017, the ASUS Chromebook Flip C302, is now up for preorder on Amazon’s United Kingdom site.
This is the same version we are seeing available here in the U.S. equipped with the 6th generation Intel Skylake Core m3 processor, 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The preorder price comes in at £590.05 and you get free shipping within the U.K.
This is great news for the world of Chrome OS. A flagship device being made available globally could mean a shift in the tide as OEMs take notice of the ever-growing market. We tip our hats to ASUS for making this move and hope to see other manufacturers follow suit.
You can secure your ASUS Chromebook today at the Amazon U.K. link below. Cheers.
